Supervisors return to UDO amendment proposals

Farm Bureau gets three out of seven changes approved

IOWA CITY– The Johnson County Board of Supervisors approved three out of seven amendments to the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) Thursday, July 9, during its regular meeting.
The amendments were proposed by the Johnson County Farm Bureau to address concerns of the agricultural community regarding wording and policies the UDO codified in support of the county’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan.

Opportunities to get moving on tap for Tiffin starting this fall

New rec. director lays out plans for the city’s first ever recreational programming

TIFFIN– He had high hopes.
When Frank Haege packed up his family in Minnesota and moved to Solon (where his wife is from and has extended family), it was with the intention of starting a first-ever recreation department for the City of Tiffin. Haege’s first day on the job was Monday, April 13, and shortly after arriving in Tiffin, he said “I am really looking forward to working with all of the existing recreational groups in the area.”
And, he had a simple goal for the residents of Tiffin, “Get people moving.”

Reconciling the sins of the past

Johnson County Supervisors discuss the origins of Johnson County

IOWA CITY– In his play “Romeo and Juliet,” William Shakespeare wrote, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.”
In Johnson County, Iowa, however, some are hoping the county will still smell as sweet under a new namesake.
Recent social unrest fueled by protests against racism has led to statues and monuments, mostly related to the Civil War, being damaged, destroyed or taken down. Several national food products are seeing changes to their branding, eliminating trademark personas such as Uncle Ben and Aunt Jemima due to connections with slavery.
