Ten areas in Kalona that may benefit from flood mitigation efforts will be investigated in the coming weeks. With their hazard mitigation plan and through their participation in the National Flood Insurance Program, the city is able to apply for federal funds to construct mitigation measures like retention basins. City Administrator Ryan Schlabaugh says he will likely have a recommendation as to how much to apply for and what that money would finance by the next city council meeting.
