Oskaloosa Municipal Water Dept. to move

OSKALOOSA — Effective Jan. 9, the Oskaloosa Municipal Water Department will move its office location. 

The department will move from 213 S. First St., to 1208 S. Seventh St. The office will be closed on Tuesday, Jan. 8, to move between locations. It will reopen at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 9, at the new location.

The Water Department purchased the old Wander’s Automotive building in August of 2012 with the intention to move the office and shop facilities into one location. That will soon become a reality. The department is in the process of designing the new office layout and will begin construction in the coming weeks. 

In the meantime, staff will locate the offices in the modular home directly behind the shop/office building. There is a new concrete parking area and handicap-accessible ramp leading up to the modular home for ease of access.

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
