Atlantic City Council to receive street improvement report


September 6th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Atlantic City Council will receive a progress report during their meeting Wednesday evening at City Hall, on the 2011 Street Improvement Projects. The report, which will be presented by Snyder and Associates Engineer Dave Sturm, will be followed by action on adopting a resolution approving the Fiscal Year 2011 Street Financial Report. The State of Iowa requires the City to submit the report as a precondition for receiving Road Use Tax Funds.

In other business, the council will act on a resolution terminating a purchase agreement between the City, and Atlantic resident Ed Leistad, for property located at 706 Walnut Street. Leistad has agreed to pay the City $1,000 to terminate the agreement. If approved, the Council will have to decide on whether to reinitiate the bidding process. Mayor Dave Jones, who was one of the original bidders on property, has expressed a renewed interest in purchasing it, but Councilman Kern Miller has indicated he would like to relocate the skate park, currently at Sunnyside park, to the site. City Administrator Doug Harris is expected to recommend the Council set September 21st, as the date for a public hearing on the disposition of the property.

The Atlantic City Council meeting begins at 5:30-p.m., Wednesday.
