(LeMars) -- The LeMars City Council has established November 1st as the day for a public hearing regarding the proposed preliminary engineering report for the city's water systems. City Administrator, Scott Langel says the city wants to offer the public an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed study. The other action taken by the council was to approve the planning and design loan application with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources for the water system.
Langel says there are a number of copies of the proposed water studies available for the public's viewing.
(LeMars) -- In other action, the council heard three different proposals from airport manager Earl Draayer about the possibility of adding to the airport's apron to accomodate more aircraft. Draayer says he has seen an increase of crop dusters using the LeMars airport. The council had the option of using either federal, state, or local programs for the project. City Administrator, Scott Langel says the federal program just didn't fit the city's plan and the state plan was going to be too long of time would pass before it could be implemented. That's why the local option was perhaps the best.
