PUBLIC FORUM: VEISHEA Task Force Meets
Iowa State University is holding the last of its public forums to discuss the future of VEISHEA this week.
The 20-member task force formed in response to the violence that happened in Campustown in April.
The group decided to hold meetings to help decide whether to change VEISHEA celebrations or cancel them altogether. Sunday’s meeting took place in Ames City Hall.
Officials say a lot of people have weighed in during the meetings but they are far from making a final decision.
“I think we are still a little bit away. We’re several weeks away from getting to that point where we can really discuss what we think should happen,” says task force member Tom Hill.
The final public forum is Tuesday night at 6:30 in the ISU Alumni Center ballroom.
June 30th is when the task force is expected to deliver its final report to ISU president Steven Leath.
