Two public hearings tonight in Massena


October 10th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

Two public hearings are on the agenda for this evening’s meeting of the Massena City Council. At 6:30, a hearing will be held with regard to housing rehabilitation and construction programs administered by the Southwest Iowa Planning Council (SWIPCO), and, at 6:45, a hearing will take place with regard to a 2010 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) application for wastewater collection systems improvement.

During the start of the regular session at 7-p.m., the Massena City Council will take action on approving the SWIPCO and CDBG applications, along with a contract for wastewater collection systems improvement. The council will also hear a presentation on rural water from a representative with SIRWA, and act on approving an agreement with Railroad Management, L.L.C and the City of Massena.

In other business, they’ll act on approving payment for blacktop service using funds from the Local Option Sales Tax and/or Betterment Fund, set the date for trick-or-treating, and discuss the demolition of a home at 208 East Cedar Street.
