IG Council reviews draft improvement plan

The Ida Grove City Council reviewed a draft of the city’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) during a special meeting April 30. JEO Engineering developed the CIP. The plan covers the city’s roadway, trail and utility (sewer and water) systems.

Cody Forch, project engineer with JEO, reviewed the plan with the council. Forch noted the plan is only a draft, but it is 90 percent complete. He added the council needs to set some priorities for what it wants to accomplish in order to get close to a final draft of a plan.

“This (CIP) is a staring point to start discussions about what you want and to help guide you in the future. Once we know what the city wants, we can tweak the plan,” said Forch.
