[ARCHIVED] City of Marshalltown Official Statement on July 19th Tornado

The events of July 19th have left the City Council Members and me deeply saddened at what our residents are experiencing.  This community is our home and to see others in distress puts a burden on all of us to overcome.  The landscape of our community while never be the same, and we must mourn that loss.


We also must, however, look to the future as well.  We know this is difficult time to do this, but please know that the City of Marshalltown with other community partners will ensure that Marshalltown comes out of this disaster a stronger, better community.  Marshalltown Strong!


I want to put an end to a rumor that has been going around about Lennox Industries.  Lennox was founded in Marshalltown, and it will be staying in Marshalltown.  I have heard these words directly from Doug Young, President and Chief Operating Officer of Lennox and want everyone to know that Lennox will continue to be the employer and community partner that it has always been.  


The collaborative spirit of our community and neighbors helping neighbors and Iowans helping Iowans has been heartwarming and has brought many of us to tears.  I cannot begin to thank all of those who have supported Marshalltown, but on behalf of the City Council and myself, thank you for being with us in our most desperate hour and the many months to come.
