Mount Ayr’s Board of Aldermen agreed to submit an application for Community Development Block Grant Funding for Housing Improvements during a meeting held on Tuesday night.
If approved, the funding could be used for 6 families that have already been selected to help finance exterior improvements to housing within the city. The action came after a public hearing was held on the grant. The Southern Iowa Council of Governments will be the Technical Services Provider for the proposed project.
Council members discussed the easement situation regarding a property located at 807 North Fillmore.
Council members also discussed forming a Pool Committee that would include members of the council, staff, and community members that would meet regularly to explore financing for a pool project or a pool upgrade for Mount Ayr.
