Lady Spartans move to 5-0

Another barn dance

IOWA CITY– A new ordinance written to regulate special events held in the county has thus far not smoothed the way for applicants.
Last week, it brought one more stumbling block for rural Solon resident Dick Schwab, as members of the Johnson County Board of Adjustment argued over the proper application of its language.

Checking the math on ICCSD numbers

IOWA CITY– A new high school on the north side, an elementary school on the east side, or both?
Or should administrators consider additions to schools around the district?
Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD) officials have promised to take some steps to correct overcrowded classes in Iowa City, Coralville and North Liberty, but keeping everyone happy is a tall order. ICCSD will likely struggle to satisfy every student’s needs in the next few years and local parents are getting vocal about their concerns for classroom space.

TIFFIN— If all goes as planned, residents of Tiffin will have a new water tower inservice during the fall of 2013.
The Tiffin City Council accepted the results of a study by HR Green, Inc. regarding the location and size of the new tank at their regular meeting Wednesday, April 11.
The study, which looked at three possible sites, also looked at water distribution in Tiffin and proposed improvements that would increase pressure in parts of the city that have chronically had low-pressure. The study and hydraulic models were phase one of the project as authorized last year.
