The plans for a new city hall in Iowa Falls are moving forward, but not without a little bit of sticker shock.
The project has been part of the city’s plans for years. When Barlow Memorial Library was built near the corner of Washington Avenue and River Street in 2000, city officials planned to leave the lot to the library’s east vacant, with the idea that it would eventually be the location of a new city hall. In 2014, the city began saving for a new city hall, with the first $100,000 set aside in the 2015-16 fiscal year. When the calendar rolls over to a new fiscal year next week, the fund will contain $1.2 million.
