A large number of people were in attendance at the town hall meeting at Riverside Center on Tuesday night to discuss upcoming ideas for the downtown area.
The mission of the mayor's advisory group is to attract, retain, and engage citizens. By focusing on the upcoming generations the hope is to prepare the city so that families want to live here, raise their children here, and be educated here.
Adams County Maintenance Director Dave Meyer reported to the county commissioners on Monday that brick sales for a veteran's memorial at the Peace Monument are proceeding nicely, with "right at 600 bricks" currently sold.
Meyer noted that he was pleased with the progress, adding its "pretty cool that Decatur has that type of project" in the works.
The 100-year-old monument was rededicated on Saturday, and the sales of bricks are helping finance the restoration of the monument.
