Clear Lake Council Rejects Location For Veterans Memorial

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) — The City Council has voted against placing a proposed veterans memorial along Clear Lake’s downtown Sea Wall.

The council also voted Monday night to form a task force that would explore options and recommend a location for the memorial.

The city Parks and Recreation Advisory Board last month also voted against the Sea Wall spot, saying it was too busy.

Backers of the Sea Wall location on Monday presented the council with petitions containing more than 1,000 signatures of people who the backers say favored the Sea Wall proposal.
