Holter touts city projects at chamber meeting

News editor

It has been two decades or more since Marion had as many projects going on as it does now, city administrator Roger Holter told the Chamber of Commerce on Friday.

There are public works projects going on, like street repairs on Fourth and Williams streets and elsewhere and water line replacement, housing developments at September I apartments and Victory Plaza duplexes, several recently opened or soon to open businesses including CiboTech, Ace Hardware, and Subway, and the library addition.

He also said the airport is doing well. It has been a base for agricultural spraying the past two years, and the city is trying to make it a permanent base for spraying.

Holter said his hopes for growth include unique dining and shopping experiences and themed lodging.
