City’s final pledge payment made to Sunflower

Sunflower Child Care and Discovery Center rendering.

In August 2021, the Decorah City Council approved a resolution to give then-proposed Sunflower Child Care and Discovery Center $500,000 to be paid over the next five years. The city has already paid $350,000 to the project, and at the Aug. 7 meeting, council unanimously approved to pay the remaining $150,000 using the city’s American Rescue Plan Act funds – financial aid given to the city for economic recovery in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This decision was made to meet the city’s expense deadline as well as remove the payment from the city’s books.
