The Storm Lake City Council on Monday approved adopting a downtown assessment report.

The Iowa Economic Development Authority’s downtown resource assessment group was in Storm Lake for a few days in late April. They toured the community, interviewed approximately 90 community leaders, individuals, and groups, and gave a presentation.
