Work on Depot continues

Warmer weather allowed volunteers to get back to work on renovating the VFW Hall in Centerville Monday. Volunteer Josh Hart excavates dirt behind the Depot with help from Kyler Risher, in orange, under the supervision of Jack Kennelly, who is overseeing all the work being done to fix the brick work around the Depot. This section of work will extend the concrete wall, pictured at bottom right, across the back of the building. Eventually, the wall will be extended all the way around the Depot. Kennelly said they are doing the work in small chunks to minimize the amount of ground that has to be dug up at one time. The work is being done with the help of volunteers and donations. Those interested in donating to the project are encouraged to contact the VFW Hall.

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
