Oskaloosa Mayor David Krutzfeldt had an announcement at Monday’s (5/18) City Council meeting:
“I received a letter from the Arbor Day Foundation saying ‘Congratulations to Oskaloosa.’ We were named a 2019 Tree City USA.”
Krutzfeldt says the city received the Tree City USA designation again for meeting requirements by having a tree care ordinance, as well as having tree care as a part of the city’s budget. He adds that it speaks well of the community that Oskaloosa is considered a Tree City USA.
Also at Monday’s Oskaloosa City Council meeting, the Council approved plans to repair the pavement on 3rd Avenue East between South 11th Street and South 17th Street. Work will begin in late June.
