FD Council Meets Again Tonight
The Fort Dodge City Council will meet tonight for the 2nd time in as many weeks. The council's work will begin at 5:00pm with an exempt labor session, followed by the first of many discussions on the 2014-15 budget. The state of Iowa requires local budgets to be completed by mid-March, before the next fiscal year begins July 1. A workshop will be held to hear budget proposals for road use tax, utilities, and sanitation. During the council's business meeting, the council will act on a proposed memorandum of understanding with CJ Bio America regarding its sanitary sewer service agreement, and could appoint Troy Kleppe as a new Fort Dodge Police Officer effective January 2.
