The interior of the Oneota Community Cooperative in Decorah will be getting some extensive remodeling.

The Co-op's Board of Directors has approved plans to replace the current refrigeration system with a new, 20 percent more efficient system; to expand the deli, produce, meat and dairy departments; and to update the interior of the current store to better serve members and customers.

The board unanimously approved giving General Manager David Lester the ability to secure bank financing up to $520,000 to start the project.  Work is expected to begin in February.

Two other motions--launching a new member loan campaign and hiring a business consultant to assist the board--were also approved.
