SSMID Approves $400,000 Towards Crosstown Connector
The Fort Dodge Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District has agreed to financially contribute to the city's crosstown connector project. The Fort Dodge Messenger reports the district voted to contribute $400,000 towards the project this fiscal year. In 2011, the district also voted to contribute over $589,000 toward the project. The crosstown connector will convert the entire length of First Avenue South into a two-way street. Also during the meeting, senior city planner Stephanie Houk Sheetz says she will be leaving late next month to take a job in Cedar Falls.
