Supervisors Approve $20k Grant for Kalona Downtown

Washington County is giving Kalona a $20,000 grant for their downtown revitalization project. City Councilor Steve Lafaurie says even though the focus is on Kalona, the improvements should benefit the whole county because it would raise property values. The only supervisor who voted no at yesterday’s (11/10) meeting was Steve Davis. He agrees it’s a good project, but is afraid an aspect of county government might have to make some sacrifices to accommodate Kalona’s request.
