January 21, 2016

The Storm Lake city council has approved on first reading an ordinance creating a Mayor’s Advisory Committee for Parks, Trees, and Trails.

City manager Jim Patrick says there’s a need for an advisory committee with the emphasis on trails around the county. He says the city is also completing a tree plan and looking at a tree ordinance… with the committee also offering advice on present parks and the development of new parks. He says it would be a volunteer board with up to 11 members.
