The Muscatine City Council will conduct two meetings Thursday with the in-depth session now scheduled to follow a regular Council session that was moved up from the original September 21 date. The change was made due to several council members and staff being away at the Iowa League of Cities conference next week.

The rescheduled September 21 regular session will begin at 6 p.m. Four proclamations will be read and signed by Muscatine Mayor Brad Bark including Public Power Week 2023, National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, Indigenous People’s Day, and Latino and Hispanic Heritage Month.

A public hearing will be held on the Downtown Revitalization Project. The $1.157 project will be funded by an Iowa Economic Development Authority Community Development Block Grant, tax increment financing, and property owner resources. You can find more information on this topic by downloading the AGENDA PACKET.

The in-depth session will follow the regular session with presentations on the City Wayfinding Project, the potential relocation of the dredge spoil dewatering operation, changes to City Code regarding animal regulations, and an update on building code items.

The public is welcomed and encouraged to attend the meeting in person. Information on joining a virtual session of the meeting is listed below. The virtual option is free and available for anyone who wants to watch the proceedings but cannot attend the meeting in person.

The City Council session will also be broadcast live on the City of Muscatine YouTube channel and on Civic-TV (Muscatine Power & Water Cable Channel 2).

There will be a change to the Council meeting schedule this month as several members, along with the City Administrator, will be absent for the September 21 scheduled meeting due to their attendance at the Iowa League of Cities annual meeting. The September 21 meeting will be moved up to 6 p.m. on September 14 with the scheduled in-depth session to be held immediately after the regular meeting.
