Sheldon, Iowa — How much will it cost the City of Sheldon to operate the proposed Events Center? The Sheldon City Council hopes to get help with the answer to that question at their meeting this Wednesday, October 7th. At their regular meeting Wednesday, the firm the City hired to research the possible ways of operating the Center, and the cost to the City, will present their report.
On a related note, the Council will vote on an updated Resolution of Support for the Vision Iowa Grant application. At the last Council meeting City Manager Scott Wynja reported that the City had already received sixty thousand dollars in donations and pledges for the project. He tells KIWA that additional financial support has been received from the community since that time without any formal fund-raising effort.
In other business, the Council will consider a request from the Sheldon Community Schools related to traffic control. They will also be asked to approve water main and sewer easements related to the construction area in the Runger Addition. And they will address a proposal for a Goal Setting Session. These sessions, where they look back on the progress of the past goals and set goals for the future, are held about every two years. The session will be led by a representative of the University of Iowa Institute of Public Affairs. A separate session with the Sheldon Chamber and Development Corporation will probably be held earlier in the day.
Wednesday’s 4:30 meeting will be held in the Upper Level of the Sheldon Community Services Center.
