Sheldon, Iowa — When the Sheldon City Council meets this Wednesday March 18th, they will set the dates for a consultation and a public hearing on a proposed amendment to the city’s Urban Renewal Plan.  That amendment won’t change the renewal area, but would make it possible to accommodate several goals including street reconstruction, additional commercial and industrial development, and the facilitation of redevelopment of nuisance and blighted properties.

The council is also expected to approve the hiring of Lyle Frohwein as Street Superintendent beginning March 19th.  Frohwein is one of six to apply for the position formerly held by Brice Mosier who passed away in December.

In other business, the council will consider a request to authorize a grant application to help fund the reconstruction of Western Avenue from 16th Street to Highway 18. This is the same type of grant received by the city to make improvements on 16th Street, Country Club Road and East 9th Street.

Wednesday’s meeting will begin at 4:30 in Council Chambers on the upper level of the Sheldon Community Services Center.
