Representatives from the Pella Area Development Corporation visited Washington D.C. this week to speak to Iowa lawmakers about issues effecting the community. Senator Chuck Grassley says they spoke about issues surrounding the Pella Sports Park, the hydroelectric plant at the dam, and a connection to I-80. Grassley says that while they can’t earmark federal dollars for certain projects, they are able to act as advocates to assist with project developments.
