The town of Vinton owns the War Memorial and right now it operates at a deficit of about 130-thousand dollars a year. The hope is by expanding the ballroom, bathroom and building a patio to the side- more people and organizations will think its a worthy place to hold their next event.
[nats w/brad looking at map?]
[runs=:03]


But the project won't come cheap. Right now officials have three-separate levels of renovations ranging from 850-thousand to two and a half million dollars.
At the lowest rung- the town would be able to take care of some structural and heating issues and do cosmetic things like sand the floors.
The one-point-eight million dollar plan would allow more extensive first floor restorations and an expansion of the parking area.

At the two and a half million dollar mark- extensive remodeling to both the first and second floors along with landscaping would be the focus.

(put board here)

Citizens will get a chance to weigh in on the plans- January 27th at seven o'clock when the town holds a meeting at the War Memorial.
After that- a public hearing will be held at the February 1st town council meeting.
