BUCKSPORT — After nearly five months of designing, fund raising and constructing, a local Boy Scout’s plans to make the Silver Lake Trails more accessible to the public is near completion.

Dylan Bunker told the Town Council Oct. 10 that he’s finished raising the money to fund his Eagle Scout public service project. His focus has now turned to building a kiosk at the park’s entrance and re-blazing the five trails.

Bunker constructed two signs placed earlier this year. The signs were placed along Central Street to guide people to the park.
