Tax credit law for EMS and volunteer firefighters goes into effect in 2013

CENTERVILLE — Iowa’s volunteer fire fighters and emergency medical services personnel can claim a $50 annual tax credit beginning in 2013 in recognition of the valuable services they provide to the people of Iowa.  On Friday, April 27, Gov. Branstad signed Senate File 2322 into law, after it was approved by a vote of 50-0 in the Iowa Senate and 96-1 in the Iowa House. On hand for the bill signing were legislators and along with emergency personnel from around the state were Sen. Jeff Danielson, Sen. Bill Dotzler and Sen. Tom Hancock.

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
