AMES, Iowa (AP) - A task force has voted to discontinue the current setup of an annual celebration at Iowa State University, though no decision was made on specific changes.

Members of the group voted unanimously Thursday to discontinue Veishea in its current form. The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1xjgG6m ) they discussed eliminating the celebration’s well-known name and spreading events throughout the year instead of a multi-day event in the spring.

The group formed shortly after a late-night crowd disturbance in early April. People are accused of overturning cars and toppling light poles. One student was injured.

The task force will make recommendations about Veishea to University President Steven Leath, who will make the final decision on its future.
