New Iowa Falls City Hall

Iowa Falls city employee Travis Schutt breaks down boxes in the central office of the new city hall on Thursday afternoon. Schutt was one of a number of city staff who moved the contents of the old city hall to the new building this week.

There’s a lot to love about Iowa Falls’ new city hall. The accessibility, the natural light, the abundant storage, the absence of ‘70s-era wood paneling. For city staff who spent Thursday moving filing cabinets, potted plants and decades of city records, it was the culmination of years of dreaming and planning.

The new building, located on the southwest corner of the River Street/Washington Avenue intersection, was still getting finishing touches on Thursday, even as city staff rolled dollies of boxes through the door, unpacked reams of paper and found just the right height for their new desks.
