The City of Ida Grove was awarded six gallons of paint through the Paint Iowa Beautiful Grant. Our project was our pumphouse near the Iowa Street Apartments. City Crew Members, Kris Taylor and Bob Lorenzen, power washed and painted the building. We appreciate their work, it looks great!
The City of Ida Grove received a $500 Grant from the Parks and Recreation Foundation earlier this year for repairs of the shelter house at City Park. Our projects included, removal of the chimney, patching the roof, and a fresh coat of paint. We would like to extend our gratitude for all who were involved in the completion of this. Ross Ladwig, (Ladwig Construction) for the donation of time and materials to patch and repair the roof. Aaron and Jennifer Hoffman for power washing and painting the shelter house. And last, but not least, our Public Works Crew, Kris, Bob, and Gerrod for the removal of the chimney.
