Veterans Memorial Construction Tabled in Clear Lake

The Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Clear Lake wants to move a planned memorial from a site near the old water tower to the sea wall located about a block west of the original site. The problem is, they are running into opposition from the city who have advocated that a beachfront is not the proper place for a memorial.

City officials have proposed other locations which have not met to the satisfaction of the VFW. As a result, the council tabled the entire idea until a later date, but would not commit to when that date might be.

The city is not alone in their feelings about moving the memorial site. Veterans and the Chamber of Commerce agree with the city that the memorial should be at its original proposed site.
