Water board to hold townhall

Meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday evening

The Osceola Water Works Team along with local city officials and others are hosting a town hall discussion, “State of Osceola’s Water,” on Thursday evening, Oct. 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

As stated in an informational flyer that was sent to customers,

“Water is a major concern for communities across Iowa. With little to no significant rain in the forecast, on top of a third year of below-normal rainfall, drought conditions continue to worsen. While the Osceola Water Works Board of Trustees and Water Works Team have increased water conservation efforts to Section 3 - Water Emergency, they’re also bringing city officials and those who know the most current conditions of Osceola’s water supply together to have an open Town Hall Discussion on that state of Osceola’s water.”

The town hall will be held at the Clarke County Fairgrounds Event Center, 2070 West McLane Street, and all concerned citizens are encouraged to attend.

Topics to be addressed include: updates on West Lake water levels, water conservation plans, residential and commercial water conservation tips, future water access strategies, Clarke County Reservoir updates, helpful community conversations and a question and answer period.

The people on the Town Hall panel will include: Osceola Water Works Board of Trustee representatives, Osceola Water Works superintendent, City of Osceola administrator and city council representatives, Clarke County Reservoir Commission representatives and Clarke County Development Corporation representatives.
