SOUTH HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- A stalled effort to build a veterans memorial in South Hutchinson is getting another look.

South Hutchinson City Administrator Matt Stiles and others are trying to revive a project to raise $200,000 for the memorial. The plan announced in August 2012 generated only about $5,000.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/1i0NKs8 ) the city of South Hutchinson will to donate the land for the memorial and Hutchinson architect Vance Voth donated his services to design it.

Stiles says the effort slowed down partly because of turnover in leadership at veterans' organizations. He says a new fundraising committee will meet in November to discuss reviving the effort.

Stiles also has explored funding from grants and Veterans Affairs but noted it's not a good time to seek funding from the federal government.
