Storm Lake mayor Mike Porsch would like to see more pride in the community.
He announced an idea during a meeting on downtown issues Monday afternoon… “We’ve had a thought, and it’s actually brought to us by a citizen. Having a theme, of just starting ‘Storm Lake Proud.’ His idea was for every block, somebody is on this Storm Lake Proud committee and you work to clean up your block.”
He explains how to could work… “Work with your neighbors, work with other residents on your block to help clean up your block. I don’t know if you’re going to be able to work that with every block, but in my mind, we need to do something along that line ‘Storm Lake Proud’ for people to take pride in their own property whether it’s downtown or in the residence. That’s the only way to get everything cleaned up the quickest if we get people to buy into it and work hard to get their own property cleaned up.”
Porsch said the city is going to work hard to get the effort started. He said it would be small steps… but the city needs to start someplace.
