The City Coucil approved a "symbolic groundbreaking" ceremony on April 29 for a Vietnam War memorial at the Civic Center, even though the exact location of the monument has yet to be decided.

At the City Council meeting Tuesday, memorial committee members said the ceremony was primarily to attract media interest and help raise the remaining $230,000 needed to finance the $500,000 project.

The council gave approval last year for a 15-foot-tall monument portraying an American and a South Vietnamese soldier to be placed on city property.

Council members and some residents have expressed concerns that the memorial may become a focal point for demonstrations.
