The Falls City City Council will meet at 6 p.m. Monday.

The agenda includes a nuisance at 1205 Harlan St., dueling pianos at Prichard Auditorium on March 18, and use of ARPA funds.

City Administrator Anthony Nussbaum reports a $10,000 planning grant to the Chamber of Commerce/Main Street for a creative district.

The city also has a resolution declaring nuisance properties at 2009,  2010 and 2015 Stone Street. The city says a letter demanding compliance with city code was mailed out in September, but rubbish in the yard and enclosed trailers for storage remain.

Nussbaum reports that the city received $725,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funds beginning in 2021.

Over $19,000 was disbursed for premium wages to employees and other disbursements are proposed as:

$208,000 for city office computer software

$350,000 for a “reed bed restoration project” at the wastewater sewer plant. Nussbaum said the current reed bed is beyond its life-expectancy.

$100,000 for building code enforcement. The city has a dedicated code enforcement officer and a fulltime building inspector.

$50,000 – sidewalk assistance program.
