The Pella City Council approved several agenda items Tuesday, setting up several long-term infrastructure projects. A public hearing to approve a contract for Oost Poort Alley water and sewer project was set for July 2nd, which is estimated to cost the city $192,700. The project is the first in several scheduled downtown to update the city’s water, sewer, and storm sewers in the downtown, some of which are over 100 years old, according to City Administrator Mike Nardini. Council authorized city staff to annex land along 218th Avenue, in an 80/20 annexation process that would require legal services for the city. Currently, the owners of 97% of property under consideration to be annexed consent to being in the corporate limits. The city intends to convert the gravel street along the road into an asphalt surface. They also approved approximately $4800 in change orders for phase two of the Pella Sports Park, an engineering services contract for a wildlife fence at the Pella Municipal Airport, and a 10-year use agreement with American Legion Post 89 for use of the Pella Memorial Building. An ordinance enforcing stop signs on 240th Place at University Street under city code was also adopted. Mayor Jim Mueller also made a proclamation relating to National Garden Week.
