The Ottumwa City Council met on Tuesday. Among the action items the city approved were updates to its fire and electrical codes, as well as the designation of a portion of Church street with the honorary name of Madre Irene Munoz Way to honor her recent retirement.
The city also heard from Public Works Director Larry Seals about a possible upcoming project related to the Troeger parking lot.
Work on the project is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2023, though Seals said winter work could be approved if weather permits. This work would be done on the beach side and would not have any effect on the tennis courts in the area. The project was approved unanimously.
