KLEM News PM Update May 4, 2011
That's the point Councilman Rex Knapp made during Council discussion Tuesday. Knapp said the city had dollar amounts in a renewal agreement with Realtor Roger Athens.
But Knapp explained it was not a case of finding a buyer to pay the price listed or demolish Kime Science, Charles Mock Library or the Centennial residence hall.
City administrator Scott Langel said reuse had been clear.
Council member John Rexwinkel said the buyer would need to reuse the building and in a way that's acceptable.
Council member John Leonard echoed the council comments. Mayor Dick Kirchoff said he'd never insisted on a listed selling price when showing the property.
The price and sale issue will be an agenda item for the May 17th Council meeting.
(LE MARS)--Some Plymouth County Supervisors are hoping more local governments will help pay the way to market six northwest Iowa counties.
Plymouth County Supervisors eliminated the full-time economic development position earlier this year. Board members volunteered for a more hands-on role. Some Supervisors also questioned paying for membership in Northwest Iowa Development.
Supervisor Jack Guenthner has attended a meeting of the group from Cherokee, Lyon, O'Brien, Osceola, Plymouth and Sioux Counties.
The current dues are about 12-thousand dollars a year.
Supervisor Don Kass said he was skeptical.
Guenthner will report back on the role cities could have with Northwest Iowa Development if they contribute to the annual dues.
(BRUNSVILLE)--Nine young women are vying for Brunsville Centennial Queen.
The candidates are Michaela Burkard; Abigail Krienert, Brittany Krienert; Leanne Lill; Amy Lubben; Crystal Plueger; Heather Plueger; Nicole Plueger; and Alisha Schlichte.
Beth Rollinger of the Brunsville Centennial Committee explains the queen contest is a fun, fund-raising event sponsored by the Centennial Committee. To vote for a candidate for queen, a dollar bill is placed in the container for the candidate at Brunsville Post Office; Brunsville American Legion; Iowa Prairie Bank; and the Corner Cafe.
Voters may cast that dollar vote as many times as they like and vote for as many candidates as they'd like.
Voting will continue until noon on June 24th. The Centennial is celebrated June 24th and June 25th.
(SIOUX CENTER)--The president of a Siouxland College is announcing plans to step down in May of next year.
Dordt College president Dr. Carl Zylstra told the Dordt Board of Trustees of his plans at a recent meeting.
Zylstra has served as president of the Sioux Center college for the last 15 years and is the school's third president.
Before his appointment at Dordt, Zylstra served as pastor of Immanuel Christian Reformed Church in Orange City.
