Thanks to $25,000 received from five sources, the former site of the Decatur Casting plant at Ninth St., and Dayton Ave. will soon undergo Phase II tests to see what remains from the initial cleanup after decades of heavy industrial use.
The Decatur 175 Committee, which is organizing a celebration in August of the city's anniversary, are seeking old photographs of Decatur that will be considered for inclusion in a souvenir book for the event.
The photos will be scanned this Saturday during the Spring Has Sprung promotion of the Decatur Small Business Association. The scanning will be done at The Next Page Bookstore and More at Second and Monroe Sts. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
