Commander’s Call

WAVP Updates

  1. July 2, 6pm, Brian Bergan from the Waverly City Council will be at the Post to receive feedback regarding the city’s fireworks ordinance.  Particularly, he needs to hear from veterans and veteran families about the impact of the 2-week window for allowing fireworks.  Brian was one of “swing” votes to allow the two week period. 

2.   July 16, 6pm, is the WAVP annual meeting.

3.   WAVP Board is appealing the Bremer Co. Board of Adjustment’s ruling that we owe property tax based on our activities.  We have failed to obtain info as to what those activities consist of.  Therefore, we have enlisted a law firm from Des Moines to assist the WAVP Board.  The case is scheduled for Sept. 10-11 in District Court in Bremer Co.; we need your support at this trial.  More info next month.

4.   The construction loan has been carried by the State Bank since the beginning of construction.  The remainder of this loan (380,000) has been taken over by the AMVETS, American Legion, and VFW.  Since the interest rate has been lowered, it saves WAVP some costs and yet gives more return to the three organizations than the current CD markets.  Seems like a win, win situation.  Remember, this is still a loan to be repaid!
