Relocated workers inundate Iowa City campsites

The Daily Iowan- Iowa City,IA,USA
Brian Trapp's and Marti Jaso's blue and gray tents sit side-by-side at the West Overlook Campground near the Coralville Reservoir.

Trapp and Jaso are construction workers who have relocated to Iowa City to help in flood relief and rebuilding. Local campgrounds have seen flocks of workers pitch tents while in town to clean up after the flood.

Bill Kallaus, the manager of Funcrest Campground, 3981 W. Overlook Road N.E., said that he has had quite a few people from all over the place setting up camp - helping him see a definite increase in business from last year.

"We had 100 guys in two big tents here for a while," he said. The men were there to help with various projects, including UI building renovation.

Colony Country Campground in North Liberty has also hosted a flock of workers, said Beth Saxon, co-owner. "I have turned away about 50 workers because we were full," she said.
