Meeting of the week

Lots of sounds-the-same names coming up...
The Moline Historic Preservation Commission will meet at 4 p.m. Monday.
Present will be reps from the Rock Island County Historical Society and the Moline Preservation Society.
Topping the agenda: A request by the historical society that it be permitted to avoid a big paint bill by placing vinyl siding on the huge old house that is home to the society's collections.
The preservation society argues there must be a better plan.

The historic preservation commission, an arm of the city, holds power to decide architectural changes because the house is an officially declared historical landmark.
