City of Tiffin, school district come together on the sidewalk at last

TIFFIN– Clear Creek Amana (CCA) schools and the City of Tiffin may finally be moving in the same direction on a proposed sidewalk, pending one more school board vote.
At its Wednesday, June 11, meeting, the Tiffin City Council approved an agreement with CCA for a new sidewalk.

Council seeks to get ahead of future traffic congestion

Tiffin sees road block on temporary access

TIFFIN– The City of Tiffin is still looking for a way out.
With another planned development north of Highway 6 consisting of more than 100 residential lots, people who live off Deer View Avenue are concerned about future traffic.
The city council has discussed the issue in its recent meetings after hearing from citizens that anticipated increased traffic from new development Tiffin Heights will cause congestion, and that illegal parking– particularly from construction vehicles– on both sides of Deer View Avenue has created potential traffic and safety hazards.

Iowa City author Larry Baker takes new book on tour to Solon’s library

“The Education of Nancy Adams,” his fifth novel, was published in March

Scholarship process to be improved for Class of 2015

SOLON– Though school is out for summer and fall classes seem yet too distant to worry about, now is the right time to be thinking about college finances.
In addition to giving a first-year college scholarship to all Solon graduates who apply, Solon Dollars for Scholars awards Continuing Education Scholarships (CES) to Solon alumni in their second, third and fourth years of college. This summer, the volunteer organization has $32,000 in its CES coffers for those current college enrollees. The deadline for this year’s CES applications is June 15.

Reducing plasticity one grocery bag at a time

Local grocer is doing small part to save environment

SOLON– People might be surprised to learn that planet Earth has a local warrior fighting one of its biggest battles right here in little Solon, Iowa.
Former Solon resident Pam Landgrebe was surprised, at least, when she visited Sam’s Main Street Market a few weeks ago and found herself without a reusable bag. As an environmental advocate, it has become Landgrebe’s practice to forego single-use plastic bags when shopping, but she came to Sam’s unarmed with her own bags because this trip to the store was unexpected.
Equally unexpected was the offer of a free, reusable cloth bag instead.

NL storm sewer project brings costs overflows

Money in the drain

NORTH LIBERTY– It’s never good when a contractor’s bill is higher than original estimates.
It’s extra bad when the bill more than doubles.
That was the situation facing the North Liberty City Council at its May 27 meeting, when McClure Engineering project manager Kevin Bailey explained a change order to the city’s storm sewer improvements along Highway 965.
