Representatives from the Iowa Flood Center at the University of Iowa have agreed to run flood modeling for the Freeport floodplain where Menard's wants to build a new store.

Flood Center officials agreed to handle the project in a phone call with City of Decorah officials.  They will come to Decorah on Wednesday, July 18th at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall to present their findings.

Decorah City Administrator Chad Bird says the Planning & Zoning Commission will host the July 18th presentation.  Bird says the Commission also has agreed to postpone a vote on the Menard's application until a meeting in August "to give time to absorb" the information from the Iowa Flood Center.
