Cool blues

NORTH LIBERTY– Things will be heating up on the west side of the city this weekend; and not just the weather.
North Liberty Blues & BBQ, presented by South Slope, gets underway at noon on Saturday, July 12, at Centennial Park, near the intersection of Jones Boulevard and St. Andrews Drive in North Liberty. While the free festival is now in its eighth year, holding plenty of traditional favorites, there are some new things to look forward to as well.

Clean-up is major undertaking for North Liberty’s indoor pool

NORTH LIBERTY– It was just a piece of glass the size and texture of a dried pea.
Even so, it caused an estimated $5,000 worth of problems for the City of North Liberty.
A young patron at the North Liberty Aquatic Center’s indoor pool stepped on the fragment in the 5-foot depth area, though the swimmer did not get cut. Once pool staff identified the fragment, the incident set in motion the procedure for evacuating, closing and inspecting the pool.

CCA boundary committee charts its course

TIFFIN– The task is great, but the time is short for Clear Creek Amana’s (CCA) enrollment and boundary study committee.
The members now ponder how to realign the district’s elementary school attendance areas ahead of a new elementary currently under construction in Tiffin. The committee, comprised of 16 members, held it’s first meeting Thursday, June 26, at the high school in Tiffin.

CCA requests reimbursement for “nonsufficient notice” by city

Boiling point

TIFFIN– A boil order in Tiffin caused a little bit of heat between the city and the school district this spring.
On May 28, the City of Tiffin issued an order for residents to boil drinking water due to work necessary to replace a mixing unit in the city’s water tower. The boil order was in effect until May 30.
