  • Northbound I-29 Reopens

    The Iowa Department of Transportation expects the construction cones and barricades along an 8-mile stretch of Interstate 29 in Mills County will be removed in the next week.

        The opening of the northbound lanes of I-29 last week eliminated a crossover and head-to-head traffic in the southbound lane west of Glenwood. Southbound traffic will be restricted to one lane until restriping is completed.

  • City Elections Tuesday

        Glenwood Mayor Kim Clark is unopposed in her Nov. 8 re-election bid. Clark is seeking a second two-year term as mayor.
        City council candidates Cheryl Evans (Ward 1) and Craig Florian (Ward 2) are running unopposed, but  incumbent Kay LeFever is being challenged by Heidi Kloeckner for her at-large council seat. Florian has previously served as the Ward 1 councilman, but was forced to resign earlier this fall when he moved into Ward 2.

  • Economic Development Grant

        The Iowa Department of Transportation Commission has awarded an $876,510 economic development grant to Mills County for improvements to the 190th Street business corridor west of Interstate 29.
        The grant was announced at a transportation commission meeting last Tuesday in Council Bluffs.
        The funds will be utilized for the concrete paving of 190th Street between the Interstate 29 - Highway 34 interchange and Kane Ave.

  • Traffic Flowing Again On I-29

    The travel time for a road trip to Kansas City became a little shorter Saturday when the Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT) re-opened a stretch of Interstate 29 from the Missouri state line to Exit 32 near Pacific Junction.

        Portions of the the 32-mile section of interstate had been closed since June 15 because of flooding from the Missouri River.
        Several vehicles were lined up on the interstate at 10 a.m. when IDOT personnel removed barricades and snow fence to formally reopen the roadway.

  • Golf Carts On City Streets?

        The Glenwood City Council has approved the first of three required readings that would legalize the operation of golf carts on city streets.
        An amendment to city Ordinance 847 would make it legal for any person age 18 or older with a valid Iowa driver’s license to operate a golf cart on city streets during daylight hours from April 1 through Oct. 31.
        Golf cart operators would be required to apply for an operator’s permit from the Glenwood Police Department.

  • Pot-ted Plants

    A search by Mills County Sheriff’s deputies has turned up a “sophisticated” marijuana plant growing operation in a rural Mills County home.

        Reports indicate deputies served a search warrant on a residence at 25365 Norrell Ave., southeast of Glenwood, shortly after 9 p.m. on Sept. 23. While conducting their search, deputies discovered a marijuana grow room in the home’s basement.

  • Damage Assessment

    MALVERN – It may be weeks or months before Mills County officials have a precise reading on the percentage of crops destroyed or damaged this year by flooding along the Missouri River and devastating hail and high winds that accompanied a pair of August thunderstorms, but there’s no doubt that production losses in the county will be substantial.

  • Councilman Resignation

    Craig Florian has resigned from his Ward I seat on the Glenwood City Council, but hopes to be elected back to the council in the Nov. 8 city election as the representative for Ward II.
