on hold for now.

was also looking at a possible commercial rehab project for the building. Consensus of
the board was to have the beautification committee make a recommendation for signage
on the old elevator and report back.
Giesen mentioned that the EDA and chamber had been approached by the Rochester
Post-Bulletin to do a small ad in a larger “Visit Harmony”-type ad to run on in a Saturday
Post-Bulletin newspaper. The chamber said most businesses are doing a 2”x3” ad for
$162. Motion by Donney, seconded by Skaalen to place a 2”x3” ad for $162 in the “Visit
Harmony” ad in the Rochester Post-Bulletin. Motion carried. It was the consensus of the
board that Giesen would come up with a design and check with a few board members
prior to using the ad in the newspaper.
