A bid letting for improvements to Kalona’s maintenance building is scheduled for later this month. The city council discussed the renovation and set the bid letting for the date of their next meeting, May 19th.
Mayor Ken Herington says they plan to add on to the building at 711 A Avenue and renovate the office, kitchen, break-room and storage space the building currently holds. That’s estimated to cost $55,000. The city is also looking to spend $30,000 to build a new 3 stall storage shed to hold salt and sand to replace the one they’re currently using that’s falling apart.
