Scouts Brighten City

The La Harpe City Park will be a little brighter this Christmas thanks to the local Girl Scout troops #5051, and #5049. At Monday's regular La Harpe City Council meeting, Tina Lionberger (center) and Christy Kienast (left) made presentations to the City Council as part of a community project.

They presented a certificate signed by the local girl scouts for the city's involvement with the Haunted House project and included a donation back to the city from funds raised at the Haunted House to buy and install Christmas lights for the La Harpe City Park.

Mayor Kenny Brown accepted the gift and said he and the council were especially grateful for the certificate and the generous gift that would help enhance their city park during the Christmas season and holidays.

In other La Harpe City Council business:

Resolution 2009-E was approved to allot $3500.00 for maintenance of sidewalks and streets to be paid through Motor Fuel Tax, and to have CCS update the hard drive on the city hall computer.
