MANLY – The Manly City Council Thursday evening selected a statue that represents its city for inclusion at the Worth County Fairgrounds.

The city council selected a statue of a conductor holding a lantern to represent Manly.  The statue will be made of bronze.  Seven statues will be placed along a walking trail at the Worth County Fairgrounds; each statue represents a community in Worth county.

Manly City Clerk Dee Dunbar told NIT Friday morning that the City of Manly plans to apply for a Worth County Development Association (WCDA) grant in the spring of 2014 for a replica of this statue.

“If the city is awarded the grant, we would display the statue in Caboose Park,” Dunbar explained.

WCDA grants come from dollars allocated to the county from revenues collected at the Diamond Jo Casino.
