MARSHALL, Minn. (AP) — Plans are moving forward for a memorial in downtown Marshall honoring heroes of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The City Council has approved proposals for precast concrete planters, pavers and other supply items for the memorial.

The Independent reports the council approved about $108,000 in purchases, including tax and shipping costs. Marshall public works director Glenn Olson says those are considered supply costs and are not part of a contractor’s bid for construction.

The memorial would be funded 60 percent through private donations, 40 percent through the city.

Officials want to have the memorial completed in time for the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. The memorial park would include memorials honoring both emergency responders and military personnel.
