News

October 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Frontier Airlines is saying goodbye to a Sioux City airport, ending a four-month stint serving the community. The Sioux City Journal reports the flights began with much fanfare and were popular, but the airline says it’s focused on faster-growing markets, such as Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. In August, the airline announced that it was stopping its nonstop flights from Sioux Gateway Airport to Denver International Airport.

The last flight from the Sioux City airport was on Friday. Frontier flights traveled three times each week between the two cities. American Airlines is now the only other carrier at Sioux Gateway Airport. The airport’s director says Frontier’s lease in the terminal ends next month. He says crews from the airline will soon remove computer systems and ground equipment.

3,200 Iowa workers to get back meal $

News

October 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Gov. Terry Branstad’s administration says 3,200 union workers are expected to be reimbursed for years of meal expenses that were improperly cut. After lengthy negotiations with the state’s largest union, the Department of Administrative Services agreed last week to refund meal reimbursements that were cut in August 2011.

A department spokesman tells The Associated Press that the deal with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees is expected to cost nearly $1.5 million. The state has already reimbursed members of two other unions nearly $250,000 under prior settlements.

AFSCME Council 61 President Danny Homan said Friday that checks might go out in February after the reimbursements are calculated. Homan says employees who traveled every day – such as motor vehicle enforcement officers – might receive $2,500 or more.
