"Clinton City officials have taken the first step toward establishing a new city seal and a new city flag. The council approved the first reading the ordinance to adopt the symbols designed by a local teen. The council did not discuss or comment on the proposals. The ordinance must be passed at two more readings before it is finalized.
Morgan Wehling presented his ideas to the council a few weeks ago. As part of the process, the council also approved a series of resolutions to be able to use the symbols. The council approved deals with Wehling to use his proposals. The city paid $100 for the rights to use each of the designs.
In a related deal the city paid one-hundred dollars to Greg Keister for the use of a picture of the riverfront lighthouse. The city uses that symbol in the city newsletter and it is used in the proposed city seal.
In the process the city also made a deal with the person who designed the Welcome To Clinton design that was part of the Great Places effort in 2007. Lisa Fontaine, an Iowa State University student at the time, developed the design as part of project.
