This week, Streets Division staff repaired a failed storm sewer intake at the intersection of West 4th Avenue and South F Street and replaced 550 square feet of failed pavement on the 400 block of West 6th Avenue.  This work required approximately 16 cubic yards of concrete and 46 hours of labor.  Street sweeping operations continued resulting in more than 94 miles of roadway being cleaned.

Kading Properties, LLC vs. The City of Indianola

On March 22, the City was informed that Kading Properties filed a motion to enlarge the March 12 Warren County District Court’s denial of a Writ of Certiorari filed by Kading Properties against the City of Indianola.  In the motion to enlarge, Kading Properties argued that the Board of Adjustment, rather than the City Council, should have been the decision making body who reviewed the site plans for the proposed Cavitt Creek Condos 1 and 2.  On Wednesday, the City was informed that Judge Clogg denied the motion to enlarge.
