A survey found more than 500 people use it every day in Marietta.

That was back in October, the city is now looking for 42 volunteers to help run another survey. Starting Monday for the next two weeks, just a half an hour a week, to count the number of people using the trail.

City Councilman Roger Kalter is in charge of finding volunteers. The next phase expands the trail from K-Mart, out to Wal-Mart across Duck Creek.

"This will provide essential transportation for those within our community that do not have motor vehicles, it will also let those of us that are bicyclist or runners or walkers to be able to go further more for transportation than just recreation," said Roger Kalter, City Councilman, 1st Ward.

The information will then be given to a city engineer to put in place the necessary information for the Phase 5 grant for the river trail.

If you want to volunteer contact Roger Kalter at: 740-373-1784
