Council to look at property condition

The Fort Dodge City Council will act as the community’s Board of Health when it considers the condition of a property during its Monday meeting.

The council will begin its work at 5 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 819 First Ave. S.

The first item on the agenda is an update on sanitary sewer work in the community.

At 5:45 p.m., the council will convene as the Board of Health to consider the status of property at 827 Sixth Ave. N. Local officials have previously received complaints about an accumulation of trash there.

The council’s regular business meeting will begin at 6 p.m. During that session the elected officials will take final action on a 1.5 percent water rate increase that would go into effect on July 1.

Council members will also consider a property transaction related to sanitary sewer work along 10th Avenue North, and set the fees for various services provided by the Engineering, Business Affairs and Community Growth Department.
