The City Council of Webster City will face a brief agenda Tuesday night that is expected to include the appointment of three new members to the Webster City Historical Committee. The council is meeting a day later than usual due to the Labor Day holiday.
Appointments of three committee members are on the agenda. One appointment will be made with a term ending June 1, 2014, and the other two will serve terms that will end June 1, 2016.
Like other city boards and commissions, the council recently approved a revamping of the committee, reducing the number of members serving and conducting interviews with applicants. The committee oversees the depot museum and the historic complex at Wilson Brewer Park.
The council will also look at an loan agreement between the Webster City Airport Commission and the City Council for matching funds to construct a new hangar at the airport. Funding from the federal grants require a local match. City Manager Ed Sadler said in a memo to the council that Scott Bargfrede, chairman of the commission, and City Attorney Gary Groves had drafted a loan agreement for the city to put forth the matching funds, with the airport commission to repay the funds from hangar rentals.
A resolution approving a change order for the 2012 Street Improvement Project contract with Fort Dodge Asphalt of Fort Dodge is on the agenda as is a resolution authorizing the mayor and city clerk to enter into an agreement with Bolton and Menk Inc., Ames, for the Jordan Well construction phase engineering services.
Chamber of Commerce Director Carrie Fitzgerald will present a quarterly update to the City Council and Mayor Janet Adams is expected to sign a proclamation declaring Sept. 10 through 15 as Doodle Bug Week in Webster City. The annual Doodle Bug reunion is planned for Sept. 13 through 15 at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds.
