The Board of Commissioners will hold a town hall on May 27 to hear from residents about the future of the Scotts Mills Dam. The dam spans Butte Creek and is adjacent to Scotts Mills County Park.
Scotts Mills Dam Town Hall

Scotts Mills County Park
6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The dam was originally built in the 1850s to operate a grist mill and later converted to generate electricity in the early 1900s.
Scotts Mills County Park was the second park developed and dedicated by the Marion County Parks & Recreation Commission in July 1961.
The Pudding River Watershed Council has proposed removing the dam. The commissioners are seeking feedback from the community about the proposed dam removal.
