Fort Madison is moving ahead with plans to extend city limits.
The city council has agreed to offer a series of annexation incentives to property owners near the Highway 2 interchange on Fort Madison’s west side.
The incentives include a reduction of utility connection fees by 50% if the connection is made within five years, a waiving of all administrative fees, and the grandfathering in of zoning designations as much as possible.
Principal Ryan Horner says the Revere C-3 School District has been around for more than 85 years. He says it was a K-12 district until 2002 when the high school consolidated with the Clark County R-1 School District.
Revere C-3 currently serves about 18 K-8 students. Horner says that number was at 29 earlier this year, but families left the district for a variety of reasons.
There is currently no one enrolled in kindergarten or fifth grade.
