PELLA — The Pella City Council approved a resolution with Garden and Associations for reconstruction of South Prairie and Monroe Streets.

The project will change the streets from gravel to pavement, which will cost up to $103,000. City Administrator Mike Nardini said construction will begin during the winter and hopefully finish by next spring.

Afterwards, the council approved a reimbursement agreement between the city of Pella and Spirit of Pella for new and improved decorations in Central Park.

The decorations are planned to go up in the middle of November, which was highly praised by Councilmember Lynn Branderhorst.

“I just think this is the loveliest project, and it’s so multigenerational friendly,” Branderhorst said. “Bravo on this project.”

In order to acquire more decorations for the park, the council approved a contract with Wright Outdoor Solutions for the upcoming holidays.

During the policy and planning discussion, the council talked about the Neil Drive/218th Avenue speed limit and stop signage.

A stop sign was proposed at the intersection of the two streets, as well as changing the speed limit to 30 miles per hour.

The next Pella City Council meeting will be on Oct. 5, beginning at 6 p.m.
