Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg believes he understands the economic challenges of rural Iowa, in part, because he himself grew up in the small in a town of about 2,500.
Gregg was in Ackley on Wednesday to tour a building at 626 Main St. and discuss rural economics with community and economic development leaders. The once collapsing building is being restored with the help of a $100,000 Community Catalyst Building Remediation grant. The renovations are scheduled to begin in October and be completed next spring.
