NORTH LIBERTY– It’s hard to think of donning shorts and playing outside in the sprinkler when outdoor temperatures have been sub-zero, but the City of North Liberty is planning for just that.
On Jan. 14, the North Liberty City Council approved the purchase of $25,000 worth of components for a new splash pad to be installed this spring.
The recreational addition was the incentive chosen by public as a result of the community’s participation in the Alliant Energy Hometown Rewards Program.
