MUSCATINE, Iowa – The Muscatine Fire Department will increase by two members Thursday when the Muscatine City Council meets Thursday (July 1) in the Council chambers at Muscatine City Hall.
Citizens are allowed to attend the meetings and those interested will be able to sit together as long as they leave a seat open between groups. Citizens who are fully vaccinated will not have to wear a mask but those who have not been vaccinated are encouraged to wear a mask.
Muscatine Mayor Diana Broderson will swear in two firefighters, Colton Pauls and Daniel Nuci, as they become official members of the Muscatine Fire Department family.
Also on the agenda is the second reading of an ordinance updating the regulations concerning nuisance vehicles contained in Chapter 3, Title 9 of the Muscatine City Code. This is part of a continuing effort to improve City Code with the intent of making the Code easier to understand and enforce. The intent of this update is not to radically change how nuisance vehicles are regulated, but rather to improve on the current approach.
The Council will also be asked to approve several purchase orders as the City begins the 2021-2022 fiscal year including one for the purchase of Road Salt in preparation for the upcoming winter.
