The City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to accept a proposed Vietnam memorial upon its completion. Mayor Frank Fry initiated the $500,000 project; it will be paid for with private funds but will stand on city property and will be maintained by the city. "I'm giving the monument to the city tonight," Fry said. "It will come to the city completely paid for, and all you folks would have to do is find a place for it."

Fry said the monument will be finished by July 2000.
