Coun. Lance McGregor put forward a motion recommendation to share the funding with property owners.

“The public works manager has talked to some property owners,” said Mayor Chris Pieper. “They’re willing to join to fund the project, so we should have a motion to proceed.”

Council voted unanimously to submit an application for funding through the community emergency preparedness fund for flood risk assessments, floodplain mapping and flood mitigation plans and the national disaster mitigation program.

Rutabaga rolls ahead

The 28th annual Rutabaga Bowling Tournament Sept. 27 is in business.
