COMMUNITY INPUT REQUESTED

COMMUNITY INPUT REQUESTED: The City Council is requesting community input at or before their upcoming meeting to be held Monday February 4th at 6pm. The City has received a proposal to have Godbersen-Smith make needed repairs and replacement to sections of the City’s recreational trail system in exchange for a piece of land from the City Park to be used for GEC. The piece of land that GEC would acquire from the City is approximately .4 – .6 acres and would be used to help expand their current shop building. The approximate modifications Godbersen-Smith would make to the City’s trail system would total roughly $150,000 and repair approximately .62 miles of trail. The current trail is 4” thick concrete and would be replaced with 5” thick concrete for the sections being repaired. They would also address erosion issues and look at tiling the High School hill. The council would like to give the public an opportunity to voice their opinion before making their final decision. If you have an opinion on the matter but are unable to attend, please feel free to call City Hall at 712-364-2428, email [email protected] or message us on Facebook!

Storm Cleanup Efforts

Yesterday we were hit pretty hard with bad weather but we are a CITY UNITED and we will get through this! Mayor Whiteing has formulated a plan to get things in order and help our citizens as quickly as possible. Normally the City is not responsible for trees, limbs or tree debris located on private property but with the extent of the storm damage, we are trying to assist residents as much as possible. More severe situations will take top priority so we ask everyone be patient. The city burn pile was opened first thing this morning. Size restrictions on limbs are currently lifted so all sizes may be disposed of at this time. A second, emergency drop off location for limbs has been designated in Zobel’s Addition at the Badger Creek Park cement parking area. If you have any questions or concerns please contact City Hall at 712-364-2428. Our City Crew is working diligently to get things cleaned up as quickly as possible but if you are able, lend a hand to your neighbor. A helping hand goes a long way.  #cityunited #idagrove #livingforwardgivingback #smalltownlove#helpyourneighbor

Young Supporter

At just five years old, little Mia Mason is already accomplishing big things. Mia, the daughter of Tony and Renee Mason, recently held her very own lemonade stand during the Ida Grove City Wide Garage Sale weekend in an effort to raise money for the Ida Grove King Theater Project. Mia operated her stand Friday afternoon and evening, and again Saturday. Her stand, featuring both lemonade and cookies, brought in approximately $300 which the preschooler happily handed over for the renovation project efforts.  (pictured here: Mayor Devlun Whiteing, Mia Mason and Theater Board member Doug Clough)

Ida County Community Betterment Foundation Grant Award

 

The City of Ida Grove would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Ida County Community Betterment Foundation for the $4,000 grant we received! This money will go towards helping the city to purchase new LED Christmas lights to hang on the utility poles in the downtown area and along Moorehead Avenue.

 

Long Live The King!

The Princess Theatre was Built in 1914 for silent films. In 1917, the theater was bought by Frank King and brought into the sound era in 1921. In 1940, Milton Mansfield bought the theater, adding a marquee. In 1954, Bob Fridley bought the theater, adding an indoor wall waterfall, floating stair case, and changed the seating arrangement. In 1982, Fred Saunders bought the theater, issuing in the VCR tape rental era. In 2010, the building fell into disrepair and the analog equipment was no longer relevant. The City of Ida Grove acquired it in 2015, selling it to the Ida Grove Foundation for a period of reconstruction. The Ida Grove Foundation Board is currently reconstructing the inside with private donations, community fundraising, and grants. The Foundation has raised $400,000 and seeks to raise an additional $150,000; they have begun reconstruction and hope to be showing movies by the end of summer 2018.

The theater will primarily show movies; however, there will be a motorized screen which will allow them to utilize a large enough stage for public speakers and one-act plays.

Please note, if the 10th falls on a weekend or holiday, your bill will be deducted on the last business day previous to the 10th.

 

Sewer Backups

Sanitary sewer line blockages are typically caused by roots, grease, and improper disposal of items.  Tree roots can enter the sanitary sewer system at joints and cracks in the sewer service lines and mains.  Grease can solidify in the sewer lines and restrict other waste from flowing through.  The lines can be blocked by items like disposable diapers, paper towels, feminine hygiene products, washing machine lint, rags or other items improperly flushed down the drain or toilet.  Please refrain from flushing these items and keeping the sanitary sewer lines clear to provide you with good service without backups into your basement.

Extendable Backwater Valves

Basement flooding can result in serious property damage.  Be mindful of your health and safety when cleaning up your flooded basement.  Floodwater may carry waterborne diseases, corrosive agents, irritants, and sharp objects.  Electrical accidents are possible because of contact between appliances and water.  Dress appropriately; wear overalls, gloves, protective eyewear, protective boots and a mask.  Open windows and stay away from electrical equipment and outlets or shut off the electrical power.

A backwater valve is a device that prevents sewage from backing up into your basement.  A valve will automatically prevent water from the sanitary sewer from coming back into your home’s plumbing system.  A properly installed backwater valve must be placed so that sewage backup will be stopped and not come out through plumbing fixtures or the floor drain in your basement.  A licensed plumber can look at your system and recommend the appropriate installation.  If you are going to install a backwater valve, a licensed plumbing contractor must install it properly.  These valves also require periodic inspection and maintenance to remove debris and reduce the risk of failure.  Ask a licensed plumbing contractor how to properly inspect and maintain the backwater valve that is installed for your home.

It is important to note that a backwater valve is designed to be closed during sewer surcharge conditions to keep water from the sanitary sewer system from flowing into your home.  When the backwater valve closes, water from inside of your home will not drain out.  When there is a risk of sewer surcharge, such as during a heavy rain storm, you should avoid using the toilet, sink, shower, washer, dishwasher or any other appliance that releases water to the sanitary sewer system.  The water will not be able to get past your backflow prevention device(s) and will have nowhere to go except back into your home.

If you are redoing the sewer line to your house, the City of Ida Grove suggests you include an extendable backwater valve.  This valve will help prevent sewer line backups into your basement.  If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at 364-2428 or the WWTP Operator Shannon Hazelton at 364-3252.

Mayor and Business Leaders Meet with Governor

This event was coordinated by Ida County Economic Development.  The meeting included representatives from GOMACO, Midwest Industries, United Bank of Iowa, First State Bank, Horn Memorial Hospital, OABCIG Schools, and other professional organizations.  “It was great to have the Governor Reynold’s attention locally,” said Whiteing.  “Both the governor and lieutenant governor gave us examples of similar sized towns that are working with their schools and industry to keep their youth workforce local.  It is also nice to see that some of her suggestions, like applying for DNR grants and tourism awards, are things we are already doing to keep our community a great place to live.”  “It was a great experience for all involved.  It is not everyday that we have our governor in our own backyard.”
