Hot Day? Restrictions continue at Macbride

SOLON– To improve overall beach safety, officials at Lake Macbride State Park have been restricting the number of vehicles and visitors to the beach area on days with a forecast high temperature of 80 degrees or above.
On days with the high temperature expected to exceed 80 degrees, vehicles destined for the beach parking lot, on the park’s north side, may be turned away when the 240-space beach parking lot is full. The move is to allow safe traffic movement and to reduce severe beach congestion at the park, located five miles west of Solon.

Solon Garden Club to meet Aug. 8

SOLON– The Solon Garden Club will meet at 7 p.m., Monday, Aug. 8, at the Solon Public Library. Our Johnson County Urban Conservationist Amy Bouska will share her knowledge on rain gardens. Urban landscapes generate runoff with almost every rainfall event. Conservation measures capture and infiltrate storm water and reduce a property’s contribution to water quality degradation, flash stream flows and flooding. Spongy soil is the secret to most rainscaping practices, including the rain garden.

Highway 1 accident hospitalizes motorists

JOHNSON COUNTY– A vehicle crash on Highway 1 north of Solon on Tuesday, July 26, sent four people to the hospital, including two young girls.
The Iowa State Patrol reports that 63-year-old Christopher Ewer, of Albuquerque, N.M., was southbound on Highway 1 near Seven Sisters Road, when the 2010 Winnebago RV he was driving went out of control and rolled to its side. A northbound Buick Rendezvous, driven by 40-year-old Karla Kruse of New Vienna, Iowa, hit the RV after Kruse tried to swerve to miss the tipped RV but was unable to avoid the collision. Kruse’s vehicle rolled into the east ditch.

NL consents to proposed annexation moratorium

NORTH LIBERTY–A proposal in what has turned out to be a very long, drawn out relationship has been made.
At least, it’s on paper.
But an annexation moratorium between the cities of North Liberty and Coralville has been proposed and accepted before. This time, North Liberty City Council member Terry Donahue wants an “agreement in principal,” he said, within one week.
