Fort Madison appears to be getting a good deal on some upcoming sewer work.
Fort Madison residents have several opportunities to weigh in on a proposed infrastructure improvement program.
Fort Madison is considering a plan to borrow millions of dollars to improve its infrastructure.
City Manager Byron Smith says a citizens’ survey was conducted last year.
He says the results showed that residents are not happy with the quality of Fort Madison’s streets.
Smith says the city can only afford to make a few, small repairs to streets each year, so he is proposing a multi-million dollar infrastructure improvement program.
The proposal looks at what could be done from the city’s five-year capital improvement plan with $6-million.
