Coliseum Conundrum

The Marshalltown City Council has some decisions to make regarding the Veteran’s Coliseum. That was part of the discussions at last night’s City Council meeting.

The Coliseum is in need of repairs and upgrades and a feasibility study has confirmed some of the work that would need to be done.

However the council was told last night it might need to decide if the City wants to retain some of the historical architectural facets f the building or not; and if the City wants to apply for grants for an historic renovation.

City Administrator Jessica Kinser and Director of Housing and Community Development Michelle Spohnheimer offered four options to the Council for discussion;

Proceed with an historic renovation, proceed with a renovation with other funding sources, tear the building down or do nothing.
