Sheldon City Council To Hear Flood Situation Updates At Regular Meeting Wednesday

Sheldon, Iowa — The Sheldon City Council will meet in regular session this Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. at the City Hall Council Chambers in the Sheldon Community Services Center downtown.

Normally the meetings this month would be on the 3rd and 17th of the month, but this time they are on the 10th and the 24th instead.

On the consent agenda are a list of claims, the approval of two people to be on the Sheldon Fire Company, an alcohol license for Family Dollar, the approval of a pay estimate for the north hangar project, the resignation notice from Police Chief Scott Burtch, the Mayor’s re-appointment of Pete Hamil as Mayor Pro Tem, a facility use agreement with the American Red Cross, a resolution approving temporary construction easements for Oak Street, and a resolution approving a three-year lease agreement with ID Excavating and Tiling LLC. The council will likely approve all these items with a single motion.

Under flood recovery, the council will receive a general update, an update on curbside pickup and city park dumpsters and one on the 10-inch water line.

Under new business, the council will consider a resolution authorizing the advancement of costs for an urban renewal project and certification of expenses incurred by the City for payment, discuss the next steps to find someone to replace Police Chief Burtch, and set a hearing to consider an appeal of code enforcement action at an address in the 500 block of 10th Street.
