Charles City, Iowa – A rail car museum is one step closer to reality.
Last night the Charles City Council approved a re-zoning ordinance allowing for the depot by Grand and D streets to be used for business and recreation. John Fallis is the City Engineer.
There will be a third reading before the resolution officially takes effect.
The Council also approved two more re-zoning ordinances for parts of Gilbert street from residential to business. Fallis says the old mapping system left a mistake.
The council also approved a two-year waiver for off-street loading and parking requirements at 1906 Gilbert Street for the new Mills Incorporated building and for the 1307 South Main street property for Mid American Energy’s wind operation facility.
The council also approved the purchase of a new pickup for the housing department. After the trade in, the state would supply a 2019 Chevy Silverado costing close to 20,000 dollars. The vehicle has already been budgeted through their budget.
