Rotary donation

The new 2012 Rotary Club members presented a $500 check to the Centerville Fire Department Thursday morning. Rotary Club members gave donations to the fund which were then matched by the club itself, bringing the total to $500. The club wanted to help cover costs associated with the string of recent fires in Appanoose County. Pictured left to right are Rotary Club members Dennis Peters and Nichole Moore, fireman Ryan Moore, Captain Vern Milburn, Chief Mike Bogle and Rotary Club members Russ Ocker, Kecia McFarland and Lynette Cisler.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
