On Jan. 31, employees of the City of Panora worked on shutting off the water supply to the former bank building at 101 E. Main St., which is owned by Ravina Homes, LLC of Des Moines. According to the workers, the water line inside the building had frozen, so the decision was made to shut the water off completely. The building had also once been home to the House of Bee business.

A “Delinquent Water Bill Notice” was posted on the front door of the building, dated Jan. 29. Panora City Administrator Lisa Grossman was contacted for additional information, but she said the city is not at liberty to publicly provide further detail.
