New Ulm City Council Preview 16 Apr 13

The New Ulm City Council will be discussing the future of the city’s Marktplatz Mall sign during its meeting this (TUE) evening. The city took over ownership of the electronic sign in the City Hall parking lot last year after the lease ended without renewal. The options now are to remove the broken sign, repair and use it, leave it unused, or sell it. An unidentified downtown business has reportedly expressed interest in purchasing the sign and repairing it. In other business, the Council will consider a New Ulm Sister Cities Commission request to re-name North German Park to “Hans Joohs Park” to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the city’s Hans Joohs Exchange Program. Today’s New Ulm City Council meeting begins at 5pm at City Hall.
