TIFFIN– A proposed annexation by the City of Tiffin is still moving forward, and even with the city’s slow and careful pace, this annexation request could be a little easier than the one accomplished 10 years ago.
Still, there is more work to be done, according to a recent update from two of the city’s hired consultants.
Chris Janson and Shawn O’Shea of MSA Professional Services asked the Tiffin City Council at its Jan. 23 meeting to brainstorm the most important information to share about Tiffin’s request to annex almost 700 acres of rural property into its city limits.

It takes a team to make a village

School board’s diversity policy riles some, soothes others

Some schools would be redistributed by FRL rates under new plan

IOWA CITY– On Nov. 5, after being elected with Karla Cook as co-chairs of the governance committee, Sarah Swisher gave the board her goal for 2013: a new diversity policy based on free and reduced lunch rates at the schools.
She cited similar policy in Des Moines and Waterloo districts where a socio-economic approach attempts to keep schools balanced diversity.
The plan, which has been approved already twice in 4-3 votes by the board, still faces a final reading, likely on Feb. 5.
