The City of Kalona submitted a Washington County Riverboat grant application ahead of last week’s deadline. If selected by the foundation, the city would use the funds to improve the Community Center. Plans include renovating a portion of the lower level, the youth area and add a vestibule to the entrance. The grant application is for $90,000. The total cost is $140,000. The city would cover the difference. The vestibule, something the city has been considering for some time, would provide a barrier between the existing entrance and outside to cut heating costs.
