Discussion on the creation of a food truck ordinance, and the sale of city owned properties, were the main points of action at the January 16 Mount Ayr city council meeting.
City Superintendent, Brent Wise, commented that there are an increasing number of food trucks in the area.
The creation of a new ordinance would allow the city to regulate the presence of these food trucks in a more efficient manner.
The decision to research and create a new ordinance was passed unanimously.
The budget amendment for fiscal year ending June 30, 2023 also passed.
This amendment was open for public discussion, but there were no public members present, and the hearing was dismissed.
There will be another public hearing for the maximum budget levy for fiscal year June 30, 2024.
This hearing is tentative scheduled for February 6, at 6:00 p.m.
The city also made two decisions concerning employment.
The position of Assistant city administrator is being created, and a job description and applications for employment should be available soon.
Karen Bender was also appointed as a member of the revolving loan committee.
Other matters and items discussed but held over for action until future sessions were: Bank loan proposals concerning the new garbage truck purchase, the possibility of selling two distressed properties owned by the city, tree removal on city property, updating the FMLA policy for city employees, and the downtown revitalization project
