City Council postpones Third Avenue SW project for this year; May 6 is spring clean-up date

The Waukon City Council met in regular session Monday evening, March 7, hosting a full council room for yet another session consisting mainly of residents along Third Avenue SW, as four different scheduled agenda items dealt with that proposed street project. Those residents ultimately listened to the Council make a decision to not pursue the project for this year, citing a need to further research the project and all the factors it entails.
Prior to that decision on the Third Avenue SW project, a public hearing originally scheduled to take place at the meeting in regard to the Fiscal Year 2017 City Budget had to be rescheduled to Monday, March 14 due to corrections needing to be made in the original published budget and timeframe requirements with publication of such a document. The Council later officially set that public hearing date for next Monday.
