City hall demolition moving ahead

Plans are moving ahead for demolition of the old city hall with a plan to rebuild.

Following a public hearing, Ida Grove City Council voted to move forward with an Urban Renewal Area and an Urban Renewal Plan with the inclusion of both purchasing and demolishing the Iverson Building as well as demolition and then rebuilding of city hall.

“Right now, we have not started the plan for financing,” said Clerk Heather Sweeden. A public hearing will be coming up next month at the Dec. 20 meeting for council on financing.

The city is looking at a public hearing on plans to enter into a loan agreement not to exceed $2.4 million for demolition and the city hall project, both under the aegis of urban renewal.
