Council to discuss small business hardship loans
The Webster City City Council will discuss establishing a Small Business Hardship Loan Program during its regular council meeting tonight.
The council will vote on a resolution to establish a program and authorize the allocation of funds. Council members will also appoint a task force to oversee the implementation and management of the Small Business Hardship Loan Program on behalf of the city.
Also at tonight’s meeting, the city council will consider a request from St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church for the temporary closure of a portion of Des Moines Street to through traffic for a mobile food pantry on Tuesday afternoon. The church is requesting the closure of traffic from Bank Street to Elm Street from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday for the drive-thru pantry pick up in the Webster City Middle School parking lot.
Other business the council will address tonight is awarding the contract for the Street Department East Shed Foundation Project.
The city council will also approve the second reading of a proposed ordinance adding stop signs to three intersections along Prospect Street, as well as the first reading of a proposed ordinance to allow two-hour parking on the south side of Collins Street from College Street to Shashi Drive.
