His tour of the Siemens Energy Inc Facility and stop in Mt. Pleasant will have pooled press access only.

      Ottumwa City Administrator Joe Helfenberger believes Indian Hills is an appropriate location for the president's visit.

      He will be going to Indian Hills. There are buildings over there that were built with largely federal funds that are very helpful, Helfenberger said.

      Ottumwa Police Chief Jim Clark received more details about the visit after talking with the Secret Service Wednesday afternoon.

      He said Ottumwa will do what is asked, but will not be doing too much because of the President's busy schedule and short stay.

      KTVO will bring you more details of the events, including locations, when the White House releases them to the media.
