U.S. Congressman David Young Discusses First Month of Term

U.S. Congressman David Young, who represents Iowa's 3rd congressional district, talked to KSIB about his first month on the job. From the U.S./Mexico border, the upcoming Netanyahu visit, to the importance of making home visits while in Congress, Young has had a busy first month.

He recently visited the U.S./Mexico border, including the San Diego, Arizona and Texas sectors. Young says it's important to recognize what is going on along the border, to be able to repair the problem, and also need "the will to do it."

Young also gave his reaction to the President's budget proposal, and offered his own suggestions. Also covered was Israeli president Benjamin Netanyahu's upcoming visit to the United States.

Finally, Young explained the importance of keeping contact with constituents while in Congress. He says when voting is not going on, he comes home.

City Council Approves Pilot Recycling Project

On Tuesday, the Creston city council unanimously approved a Pilot Recycling Project. Just before the vote, the program was layed out by two representatives of Waste Management.

Households included in this project would have two separate 96-gallon carts, one with a yellow lid for recycling. Residents on streets: South McKinley, S. Park, S. Bureau, and S. Stone are a part of this.

The recycling carts would be distributed March 23 and 24, and the first pick-up date would be April 7. The representatives say the program would continue through the end of June. At that time, they would gauge the success of the program.

Nodaway Valley School Bond Election Fails

The Nodaway Valley School District held a school bond special election for an $8.815 million proposed new elementary building on February 3. Though there was a majority that voted in favor, there was not enough to pass. It required 60% approval, but only garnered 58.4%.

There was 18% voter turnout in Fontanelle and Greenfield, and 27% turnout in Bridgewater. The final tally was 397 in favor, 283 against; the issue would have passed with 408.

The school may try the bond election again, in September.

Second Reading Fails at Creston City Council for Proposed Gas and Electric Franchise Ordinances

The Creston city council held the second reading of the proposed gas and electric franchise ordinances, and they failed. It was a 4-3 vote against, with members Gary Lybarger, Dave Koets, Ann Levine, and Rich Madison in opposition to the issue.

Two weeks ago, the first reading did pass with 4-3 in favor. Gary Lybarger was the swing vote Tuesday night. If passed, it would have started at a 2% fee in October, gradually increasing annually to 5% by 2020.

Iowa Supreme Court Coming to Creston in March

Possible Street Improvements Coming to Creston

Creston Public Works director Kevin Kruse gave a report to the city council at their Jan. 20 meeting regarding street improvements. He says there are no particular streets taking precedence over others, nor would everything happen at once.

Some of those areas included: E. Howard St. from the railroad tracks to Osage, S. Chestnut from the underpass to Taylor St., asphalt overlay from Cherry St. west to Sumner. There were nearly 15 areas listed in his report, and would take several million dollars for just the areas in his report.
