Making the scene

NORTH LIBERTY– Susan Miller has a room with a view.
Though Miller has lived in the same modest two-story at 245 N. George St. in North Liberty for 33 years, through many different seasons, she is treated to a springtime view overlooking a pastoral pond teeming with wildlife every day of the year.
Miller painted the scene on her fence.
“I wanted a deer,” she said. “My neighbor had seen deer in our alley, but I never had, so I wanted to be able to see a deer in the alley, too.”
She first painted a whitetail buck, and then added a doe for company. But the scene was too austere.

The price of protection

NORTH LIBERTY — As the population of North Liberty has continued to grow, so too has the size of the police department. What hasn’t grown, according to the officers, are their paychecks.
But, with a new union labor agreement, the officers will see their pay increase to levels comparable with their law enforcement brothers and sisters in the Corridor.

Petition will seek new form of council representation

NORTH LIBERTY– It’s not exactly a remake of 2007, but the storyline is very similar.
A petition has been circulating within North Liberty to force a vote for a new form of representation within the city government.
The document calls for the council to hold a vote on whether or not to change to a ward system of representation. Under this plan, North Liberty would be split into equal-population wards, and the registered voters in each ward would elect one resident from that ward to serve on the city council.
