Council to discuss streets and possible ordinances

Courier Staff Writer

OTTUMWA — Three action items will kick off the Ottumwa City Council’s special meeting next week.

The council is expected to approve the streets under the Expanded Street Repair Program 2013. Members will also approve a change order and accept the work  as final on the Fifth Street Improvement Project at Ottumwa Regional Airport.

Then the council will consider a revised application to the Iowa Department of Transportation under the Revitalize Iowa’s Sound Economy Grant Program for improvements to Iowa Avenue.

Next, the council will switch to a work session and discuss selling the cemetery rental property and improvements on cemetery grounds.

They will also discuss three proposed ordinances — after-hours businesses, noise prohibitions and nuisances.

After that discussion, the council members will focus on a proposed Council Rules of Order.

The meeting is set for 5 p.m. Monday in the council chambers at City Hall. The meeting is open to the public and will air live on GO-TV, cable channel 6.
