I have been in Ottumwa nearly 70 years and never in my life have I have known that we have a budget of $4,886,339 in the “red!”

People of Ottumwa, why is this?

I’ll tell you. You have to get out and “vote” on a subject like Bridge View. Now we have to pay for the project and a lot of other items.

We have a 4 to 1 council that votes yes on everything that comes in front of them.

You better start getting involved with your city.
