The City of Ripon has a contingency plan in place for Veterans’ Day on Monday.

In case of wet weather, this annual community-wide outdoor event scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in front of the Ripon Veterans’ Museum and Memorial Wall, 311 First St., will be moved to the Community Center, 344 W. Fourth St.

The Ripon City Council on Tuesday paved the way for that by agreeing unanimously on the request orchestrated by American Legion Post #190.

“My Commander (Ken Lawson) approached me about having some place to go to in case of an emergency,” said Mayor Dean Uecker, who, at one point, even considered the Council Chambers for the back-up plan.
