Grundy County Farm Bureau President
Soon the general election will be here and there will be 3 seats for City Council & the Mayor up for election. I will not be eligible to run for re-election, as Marion and I will be moving outside the city limits and county.
Over the past 4 years it has been a great experience to serve the people of Reinbeck and work with the fellow Council members to try to maintain and promote Reinbeck. I believe that together, we have made some progress. To name a few successes, we have, in cooperation with the G-R School District, built a high quality, licensed, daycare facility that serves many in the town and surrounding community, the tax rate has been lowered during this period by more than 10%, an Emergency Preparedness Plan was developed and a 5 year plan developed for the capital improvements for the city. Much has been done, however as always, much remains to be completed.
The city needs some leadership minded individuals to take the challenge and seek election to the city government and help to maintain and promote Reinbeck in the future. You must have your petition for election and other materials submitted by September 22nd at 5 p.m., for your name to be on the November ballot. You can obtain the necessary forms from the following website, www.sos.state.ia.us/elections/electioninfo/cityelections.html or obtain them from City Hall.
Reinbeck is a great place to live. Thanks and let's work together to promote Reinbeck.
Reinbeck City Councilman
