Delinquent ambulance service fees on council agenda for Monday

The Newton City Council meeting Monday might will include a second consideration of adding the delinquent ambulance service fees.

The first consideration was presented at the May 5 council meeting. Newton Fire Department Chief Jarrod Wellik stated that the additional delinquent ambulance service fees of 25 percent are currently coming out of the fire department budget and the delinquent fees will save the department money. The first consideration passed unanimously.

The council meeting also will feature three presentations, including a Thunder Nites update from Thunder Nites Executive Director Libby Marshall, minimum housing rental code from Newton Fire Department Fire Marshall Mike Knoll, and streets and paving from Newton Public Works Director Keith Laube.

Also on the agenda:

• A resolution approving a 2 percent salary increase for Newton City Administrator Bob Knable.

• A resolution to renew the legal service agreement with Brick Gentry.

• A resolution approving the purchase of real estate for the Newton D&D Program. The properties include 625 E. Fifth St. S. and 1022 S. Fifth Ave. E.

A resolution directing the sale of General Obligation Bonds, Taxable Series 2014 A&B.

• A resolution approving the appeal and granting waiver from the adopted Newton Site Plan Code for driveway approach and other improvements within the city right-of-way for Van Maanen Electric located 627 North 19th Avenue East.
