Veterans Memorial Gets Green Light from Village Board
A veterans memorial at the corner of Broad Street and Southway in Greendale cleared a major hurdle on Tuesday as the Village Board approved a “memorandum of understanding” with Greendale Veterans Memorial Committee to construct a memorial at the site.
“The approval of the “memorandum of understanding” is the first step in the process of constructing a memorial for the veterans of Greendale,” said Veterans Memorial Committee Member Jay Chadwick. “With the execution of this agreement the committee will now begin fundraising in earnest to construct the memorial.”
“The Greendale Veterans Memorial Committee would like to thank the Village President, Village Board and Village Manager for their efforts in this project,” continued Chadwick.
Trustee Donna Ouellette was not present at the meeting. Trustees Sally Chadwick and Bill Kewan, are members of the memorial committee and abstained from the vote.
In 2014, the estimated cost for the memorial ranged between $220,000 and $250,000. For more information about the memorial, visit www.greendaleveteransmemorial.org.
