The Decorah Downtown Betterment Association (DDBA) will make up the difference needed to lease the parking lot in the 400 block of downtown Decorah behind the Old Armory BBQ.
On a 4-3 vote last month, the Decorah City Council approved a two–year lease renewal of Marc Folkedahl’s parking lot. But the Council approved paying Folkedahl only $400 per month, not the $500 monthly rate Folkedahl requested and the amount the city has been paying him for the past two years.
Folkedahl told city officials he would not be accepting the $400 amount the Council approved so DDBA members agreed last week to pay $100 per month toward the lease for the parking lot to remain open for public parking.
