David Boss, NE David Boss, Community Outreach and Development Director from
Iowa Community Northeast Iowa Community Action informed council they are looking
Action for office space and are interested in the old Police facility. They currently maintain two Family Services offices in Fayette County. They will need a waiting room and four office spaces. Northeast Iowa Community Action would pay to remodel the old police facility. He requested to discuss a proposed lease with the City. They have a July 1st move date.
