Next for Veteran's Memorial Park
continue on the construction of the North St. Paul Veteran's Memorial Park project.
In May, Governor Mark Dayton signed the state bonding bill, which included $100,000
in state money for the project. Those funds, plus a $9,900 State Legacy grant,
will be added to the more than $97,000 raised by the Veteran's Committee through
the sales of paver blocks - bringing the total, combined project funding to date
to more than $205,000. Through June 30, the Committee had sold nearly 430 individual
pavers and more than 30 corporate sponsor pavers.
The law authorizing the bond
funding requires a local match, which may include both cash as well as in-kind
services. The City must also enter into a formal funding agreement with the Department
of Administration; the agency overseeing the funding. City staff is working alongside
members of the Veteran's Committee to satisfy all match and bidding requirements
and documentation needs of the State to keep the project moving forward. At a
minimum, the committee is looking to purchase and engrave the pavers, granite
wall panels and entrance statue yet this year and begin construction next spring.
On the possible construction delay, Committee member
Tom Trost recently told the City Council the current effort, triggered by the
state funding, would enable the Committee and City to showcase a completed project
rather than building it in phases - even if it meant starting construction in
The Veterans Committee is a joint effort of the
American Legion Post 39, VFW Post 1350, North High Air Force JROTC and the City
of North St. Paul. More information contact go to www.northstpaul.net.
Veterans Park Committee is finalizing the artwork and information needed on the
Memorial Wall portion of the monument. A list is being compiled of the North Saint
Paul Area Veterans (postal zip code 55109) who were listed by the Department of
Defense as being Killed in Action, Missing In Action and/or Prisoners of War from
all conflicts and time periods. We are asking the public to provide those Veterans'
names that they believe to be included on the Memorial Wall. Please contact Joe
Zakrzewski, Committee Secretary, at 651-773-8526 or email@example.com

of the Month:
Storing your Car
Select a dry, dark location for storage - preferably with
limited access. Concrete flooring is best at keeping away moisture. If you must
store your car on a dirt floor, place a plastic barrier under the vehicle, and
place carpet pieces or plywood under the tires.
Give the vehicle a good wash/wax.
Putting on and removing a vehicle cover will lead to unwanted scratches if the
car is dirty.
Fill the fuel tank (preferably with premium) and add fuel stabilizer.
Be sure to run the vehicle to move fuel stabilizer into the carburetor, fuel rails,
injectors, etc. The fuller the tank, the less room there will be for air, which
carries moisture that can lead to fuel contamination and possibly rust within
Change the oil and filter right before putting away the vehicle.
The clean oil will reduce the risk of harmful
contaminants working away at
your engine during hibernation - and you'll be ready to go in spring.
Add air to the tires.
If you're storing your car offsite,
some insurance companies require you to report the address of the offsite
Check with your insurer to determine your policy's requirements.
