Housing Applications, Police Procedures, and IEDA Grants: What Carroll City Council Will Address on Monday
Get ready for an action-packed yet streamlined Carroll City Council meeting this upcoming Monday. While the list of agenda items might look short, they pack a punch in terms of community impact. The meeting is set to kick off at 5:15 p.m. at Carroll City Hall and will also be live-streamed for those who prefer to tune in remotely. A full agenda and remote attendance options are available on our website, ensuring you won’t miss a beat.
First up, the council will offer public tributes to two of the city’s most dedicated employees who are heading into retirement—Water Superintendent Terry Kluver and Phil Bock from the Street Department. Their years of service to the community have not gone unnoticed, and this formal recognition serves as a testament to their contributions.
On the docket for routine business, the consent agenda features not just the usual bills and permits but also brings attention to four fresh infill housing incentive applications. According to City Manager Aaron Kooiker, there’s a race against the clock here; only a few of the initial 20 awards are still up for grabs. So, if you’ve been mulling over a housing project, now’s the time to hop on board!
Resolution-wise, the council has two big items to consider. The first is a proposed amendment to an existing professional service agreement with JEO Consulting, focusing on upcoming water main replacements throughout Carroll. The second agenda point is an essential one, aiming to update the Carroll Police Department’s Standard Operating Procedures. This resolution is part of the city’s ongoing commitment to community safety and police transparency.
Last but certainly not least, the council aims to appoint a specialized housing assessment task force. This move is part of Carroll’s engagement with the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) and its rural housing assessment grant program. City officials are keen on this completed assessment boosting Carroll’s chances for securing state grants and other housing assistance.
To round off the meeting, Aaron Kooiker will update everyone on the status of phase one of the crucial Adams Street Reconstruction project. This is an eagerly awaited development, so be sure to tune in for the latest news.
