Judge allows Coralville to proceed with Von Maur project

IOWA CITY– A district court judge has ruled that Coralville may proceed with a multi-million dollar economic development deal, at least for now.
Plaintiffs in a March 1 petition had asked the court for a temporary injunction to halt the City of Coralville’s proposed land sale to Von Maur department store. The deal would give Von Maur an estimated $14 million in incentives to relocate from Sycamore Mall to Coralville’s Iowa River Landing (IRL) area, paid for through Tax Increment Financing (TIF).

Burning to be resticted, not banned

SOLON– An ordinance revision to seasonally restrict the burning of landscape waste will come before the Solon City Council at an April 4 meeting.

If adopted by the council, residents would be allowed to burn plant material generated on their property on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. during those periods.
And that may be as far as it goes, at least for a while.
