Sister city to D.M. pays visit to Iowa

DES MOINES (KWWL) - Officials from Des Moines' Russian sister city are expected to visit next week.

Officials from Stavropol, Russia, plan to be in Des Moines from May 30 through June 5.

During their visit, the officials will tour the city's wastewater treatment plant; its water works; an elementary school; Anderson Erickson Dairy, Mercy Medical Center; and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

The officials also will attend dinners hosted by Mayor Frank Cownie and Drake University President Dr. David Maxwell.

Matt Rosen, chairman of the Greater Des Moines Sister City Commission, says the delegation's visit is an important part of the commission's three-year plan to build business, cultural and education ties between the two cities.
