Toledo City Council regularly scheduled meetings will begin one hour earlier effective tonight, Monday, July 28. The long-standing 7 p.m. starting time was switched to 6 p.m. on a council voice vote during their July 14 meeting.
A presentation on apartments by Newbury Living, West Des Moines is among the agenda items. The developer has recently proposed building one or two apartment complexes in Tama to accommodate families for an expected influx of workers when Iowa Premium beef reopens the closed Tama Pack operation. A Newbury representative told the Tama City Council his company is also working on a possible development in Toledo.
Other agenda items include: Don Musgrave- beer garden; Kathy Holtz- renew library board term; Approve resolution supporting Marshalltown Lead Hazard Removal Program in which Toledo has participated in the past; accept donation of property at 700 S. Church St; accept demolition bids.
