The Oskaloosa City Council met last night for the final time in the calendar year 2022. The council held a public hearing for an amendment to the FY2023 budget to add the expense of a new pump truck for the Oskaloosa Fire Department in the amount of $600,000. This amendment was approved.
The council also approved a contract amendment to the Wastewater Facility Plan Long-Term Improvement Project for Pre-Design of the Wastewater Treatment Facility with FOX Strand. FOX Strand requested an additional $1.4 million for predesign work for the facility, including developing a process model of the new Combined Wastewater Treatment Facility.
The 2nd readings of two ordinances were also conducted, which will impose no-parking restrictions on sections of North B Street and South B Street.
The Oskaloosa City Council will hold their next regular meeting on January 3, 2023.
