Town auctions off naming rights to creek


The town of Kalona is looking to auction off naming rights to its creek

The idea came about after the current name of the creek, the west drainage ditch, came up at a city council meeting.

The city was short money for a sidewalk project in the community. and decided to give the idea a try.

"Maybe somebody as they're playing golf in California or New York will say, oh by the way, I just named a creek," Kalona Newspaper editor Dan Ehl said.

The creek will go up for auction on eBay beginning next week and be up for bid for the maximum amount of time.
