City council approves agreement

The Oskaloosa Herald

OSKALOOSA — At Monday’s regular meeting of the Oskaloosa City Council, council members approved a resolution approving an agreement with Rohrbach Associates PC for the schematic design of Fire Station No. 1.

According to the agenda item explanation, the project scope for the remodel and expansion project includes “additional bays to the existing facility, remodeling the living quarters, incorporating Mahaska County Emergency Management office and storage space, and finishing the third floor for the purpose of creating a community meeting and training room.”

A schematic design lets the city council receive more “concise project costs” that will help determine the borrowing amount needed for the project, according to the agenda item explanation. The explanation also notes that funding for the project is expected to come from general obligation bonds, “pending voter approval.”
