As most of you know, the Ida Grove City Park is full of ash trees, which are subject to the Emerald Ash Borer. Knowing this, the City applied for the Trees Please! grant through MidAmerican Energy and was recently informed of grant award! The typical award amount for this grant is $1,000; however, the City of Ida Grove was awarded $2,000 in funding towards the project! Thank you to MidAmerican Energy and the Trees Please! grant for this wonderful opportunity to plant some new tree species in the City Park! We look forward to beginning this project!
