Mason City council meets tonight
MASON CITY — The City Council in Mason City meets tonight with a number of items on their agenda:
== The council will hold a public hearing on issuing a total of $4 million in general obligation bonds. $3.7 million are Essential Corporate Purpose bonds while $300,000 are General Corporate Purpose bonds. City Administrator Aaron Burnett says the bonds will allow the city to execute needed improvements identified in the Capital Improvements Program that the council approved earlier this year. The projects range from vehicle purchases to infrastructure and building improvements.
== The council will consider approving the contract and bond for the Winnebago River Dam One mitigation project. The council at their June 1st meeting approved awarding the contract to Beemer Companies of Fairmont Minnesota for $854,724, and now the council must approve the form of contract and bond for the project to begin.
== The council will also consider a resolution expanding a permit parking district near MercyOne North Iowa Medical Center. The council back in March approved establishing a district on the east side of Linden Drive between 1st Northwest and Beaumont Drive, with permit parking being enforced between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM weekdays. After the establishment of the district and signs were posted, it was discovered that the west side of Linden Drive was marked as a no parking zone. Since parking on the east side was limited only to residents with permit hangtags, the residents on the west side were effectively left with no street parking. Five of the seven affected property owners when contacted by the city stated their desire to be included in the parking district.
The council meets at 7 o’clock tonight in the Mason City Room of the Public Library.
