Work on monument to begin

July 22, 2013

This is an artist's rendering of the local Peace Monument with its waterfall fountain restored on the north side and the Peace Wall with names of veterans.

    Work to reinstall a waterfall fountain on the north side of the Peace Monument in Decatur is scheduled to begin next week as the date for the monument's rededication draws ever nearer.
    Joe H. Construction of Berne is the general contractor for the project, supported by subcontractors Don R. Myers Plumbing & Heating of Berne, Kiess Electric of Decatur and Berne Ready Mix. The latter has already measured the monument for the addition of the limestone.
    County Maintenance Department Director Dave Meyer said Thursday that some 130 bricks have been sold for the Wall of Peace, bringing in enough revenue to begin work on the fountain. Another $30,000 or so will be needed to construct the wall at the monument site, he noted.
