Columbus Councilwoman Ernie Kan is getting the courthouse sidewalk repair project finished up with new help. Flowers were recently purchased with donations and the Polk County High School FFA planted the flowers as a project in time for Mother’s Day. Kan thanked the FFA and Polk County employees who prepared the beds during a Columbus Town Council meeting held Tuesday, May 17. Kan began the project about a year ago to repair the sidewalk with time and money being donated. The sidewalk in front of the courthouse is nearly complete. The FFA had two classes work recently to plant the flowers and the county provided four employees who worked three or four days on the project. “It’s encouraging to have new people working on the sidewalks,” said Kan.
