Members of the newly-restructured Knoxville VA Task Force include people beyond Knoxvilles borders. Mayor Harv Sprafka says he specifically reached out to members of Pellas private industry, academics, and economic development representatives when restructuring the Taskforce earlier this year. Sprafka says new members include a professor of economics at Central College, a manager of Pella Corporation, and a member of the Pella Area Development Corporation, or PADCO. The 15-member committee is set to meet in the near future.
