Instead of shovels, the I-H Mississippi Valley Credit Union used a large John Deere excavator Tuesday to break ground for its new headquarters. The 90,000 square foot building will be located on River Drive in Moline, near the WIU campus.
Instead of giving the speech herself, Moline Mayor Stephanie Acri summed up the city's achievements during the past year with a panel discussion. Several department heads joined her for Monday's State of the City Address to members of the Rotary and Kiwanis clubs.
Hoping to compete with Iowa and help young people find jobs, Moline has changed its liquor ordinance. Now "minors" who are 18, 19, and 20 can sell and serve alcohol in bars, restaurants, and grocery stores.
