Colfax launches brand new website and inaugurates new town hall




Two other changes occurred on Friday for the city of Colfax. After the trees were planted, Mayor David Mast raised the city’s brand new flag for the first time.

COLFAX, Iowa – As Colfax City workers have been working at the new city hall for a few weeks, Friday morning marked its official opening.

Students from the Colfax-Mingo Community School District helped plant trees donated to Colfax through the Derecho Community Forestry Grant from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

These trees were planted right in front of the town hall; others will be planted in front of businesses on Howard Street.

“You know, it’s just fun to see it. It came to fruition after years of hard work and it’s a beautiful building,” said city administrator Wade R. Wagoner. “Our architect, Envision, did a great job. It’s just wonderful to be in such a beautiful space. Colfax deserves it.”

The new blue wave flag with an osprey symbolizes the legendary spring water of Quarry Springs for which the town is known. The color of the bird, anthracite, not only blends well with the blue of the flag, but it represents the history of the city with coal mining.

The city says it was the coal miners who discovered Colfax’s famous mineral water.

Finally, the last change with the city is its brand new website, which also launched on Friday. The website helps residents pay their bills and visitors find the best places to explore, eat and shop while visiting Colfax.
