DMCo Supervisors Say No (Again) to Former Army Reserve Center
The Des Moines County Board said “no” yesterday to the proposed purchase of the former Army Reserve Center in Middletown.
Board Chair Tom Broeker says it would have to be done with borrowed money- and that’s not going to happen. Sheriff Mike Johnstone had recommended the purchase, using the property for a regional communications center, among other things.
On another front, Conservation Director Chris Lee announces that his staff will be running electricity next week to 19 of the new campsites at Big Hollow, Southwest of Mediapolis.
