Council votes to install new street light pole on Woodland View Drive

Councilman Randy Marcussen's residence on Woodland View Drive is on a dead end. The pole in question is in the middle right of this photo. Adding a street light would only light up his front yard and not the street. There are other residences on the street but they are south of where the new pole would be placed.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
