The inability of the current cooling system to keep the park district's fitness center at a comfortable temperature was the main topic of discussion during the July meeting Prophetstown Park District Board of Commissioners.
The Prophetstown ESDA organization is holding a collection of medical supplies for the Marshalltown, Iowa emergency services that have had their rescoures depleted by a tornado that struck the town on Thursday.
During their bi-monthly July meeting the Village of Tampico was gifted with a memorial donation by the family of Gary Johnson. Johnson's son Terry read a letter to the council describing his father's love for the baseball program in Tampico.
"This is fantastic," was the comment from Mayor Kristine Hill after receiving word that the village of Tampico had received a $2.5 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Office of Rural Development to fund an update of the water delivery system.
