From the Mayor

Hello Ida Grove. First off this week I wanted to talk about COVID. I have gotten several messages about worries in our county. We are taking some additional steps in the city to keep our employees safe. We are encouraging rotating in city hall and working from home. Trying to keep our social distancing. We have moved all city council meetings and other city meetings back to electronic meetings. We did discuss at our council meeting last night that we would close city hall to the public, except by appointment only. The numbers have been getting high in our county. As of today Ida County has had 2055 tested, 353 positive, 170 recovered and 5 deaths. One death is too many. My thoughts and prayers go out to these families. Let us do our part to be a part of the solution and not add to the problem. We are our own first line of defense. Hospitals are at capacity, healthcare workers are depleted. I really encourage people to stay home if they are sick or if someone in their household tests positive. Social Distance when you can if you cannot wear a mask. Wash hands frequently and sanitize. Lets work together to beat this virus. Please be safe out there. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by COVID. Also praying for our country with this election going on. Praying for our leadership. No matter who is announced President; we are America and I feel we will all pull together and be stronger. Just wanted to give a shout out to the OABCIG Football Team. Congratulations on your trip to the dome in Cedar Falls. Bring home the Championship! The community is very proud of you guys!

Feel free to reach out to me with any concerns or questions.

Very Humble and Proud to Serve Ida Grove

Due to the rise in the number of cases with COVID-19, as of tomorrow 11/18/2020, our City Hall Office will be closed to the public until further notice except by appointment only. Our office staff will continue regular operations with a modified work schedule.  Payments may be made via the drop box, by credit card payment online, or by automatic withdrawal.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  Please call 364-2428 with any questions.

Preliminary Flood Maps

City officials participated in a Consultation Coordination Officer’s Meeting this week with members from Atkins, FEMA and IDNR regarding the Preliminary Revised Floodplain Maps.  Anyone interested is urged to review the preliminary maps at

www.IowaFloodMaps.org

On the left side of the screen under draft flood hazard maps, click the Green “view the maps” box.  Then on the right hand side, click the Red “view maps” box.  In the drop-down box, select Ida-Preliminary.  From there you can pan around the map or utilize the search box to find your property.

Due to COVID-19, there will not be a community meeting regarding the maps, however, anyone with questions will be provided an option to meet electronically, 1-on-1 with an IDNR representative to discuss their property.  Please contact City Hall at 712-364-2428 if you would like to be contacted/scheduled a meeting with a IDNR representative.

It is imperative that residents review the maps as soon as possible as we will soon be entering a 90-day appeals period.  The official appeals period will be advertised in the Ida County Courier by FEMA and this will identify when the appeals period begins.  It should be noted that appeals related to the flood studies and flood hazard information on the floodplain maps must be supported by technical data and can only be submitted to FEMA by the City during the appeals period.  Comments such as clerical corrections not related to the flood hazard mapping can also be submitted before or during the appeals period.  If you have a question or concern, please contact City Hall at 712-364-2428 so we can assist you with determining if it would be a possible comment or appeal.  Comments and appeals submitted should be sent to the City so they can be coordinated with IDNR and FEMA.
