Council to Receive Update on USDA Rural Development Grant –

Sheldon, Iowa — A fairly routine agenda awaits the Sheldon City Council for its regular meeting this Wednesday afternoon.

They will accept a notice of resignation from Connor Klatt, who served as a street service operator. They will approve a road use tax report, certain transfers and the list of uncollectible second quarter SCAT accounts. The council will also approve routine requests for Celebration Days street closures, among other routine items in their consent agenda. All consent agenda items are normally adopted with a single vote for the entire package.

The board will receive an update on a USDA rural development grant and one on US bailout funds. City Manager Sam Kooiker said the city received five USDA grants totaling $210,600. He says the home game costs nearly $498,000. Grants would be used for police equipment (including software, tablets, replacement radios, car cameras, etc.), police and emergency vehicles, a “fast attack” van for the Sheldon Fire Company, fire equipment and an ambulance for SCAT.

The City is also working on its plan for the Rec Bowl site. Kooiker says the next step is to file the 120-day affidavit.

Sheldon City Council will meet this Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. in the council chambers of the Sheldon Community Service Center.
