The city of Mount Ayr is actively planning the creation of a storm water utility. The utility would act separate from, but in the same manner, as the municipal water and sewer utilities. Staff would be assigned to the utility, operation and maintenance provisions would be designated and capital improvements would be planned.
There is a public participation phase of this process. Come to a public meeting to learn more about the intent of this public utility, why it is necessary and express any concerns.
Public meetings regarding the implementation of the Mount Ayr storm water utility will be held 10 a.m. Saturday and 6 p.m. May 8 at the Southwest Iowa REC community room.
