“It’s all a lot of baloney. It’s all unfounded.”

~Carroll County Supervisor

Gene Meiners
A juvenile detention center in Cherokee supported by Carroll County is on probation for a month because it kept a 17-year-old boy in leg restraints for nearly 48 hours and locked up in solitary confinement for nearly a week.
  • A trail spur connecting downtown Carroll with the Sauk Rail Trail emerged as a highly popular element of a proposed full-city trails plan at a recent public meeting. 
  • The Carroll County Board of Supervisors approved a 2.25 percent salary increase for county employees Monday, which is in effect for fiscal year 2015. 
  • A move to scale back the number of Audubon City Council meetings to one night each month - to the first Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. - failed Monday night when the three council members present failed to vote unanimously to approve it. 
  • Carroll City Council members Monday night approved a $1.8 million water-well expansion project aimed at eliminating the need for usage restrictions like the long-running one in place. 
  • Advocates of extending the Carroll Public Library east better not read the 1,040-page "War and Peace" before making their case. They have just weeks to sell the idea before if collides with imminent street construction. 
  • Carroll City Council members Monday signed off on the application for up to $125,000 in state funding for a planned city trails system. 
  • Dave Wiederstein, the Atlantic attorney who since January has worked as Audubon's interim city attorney, was hired permanently for the job by a 4-1 city council vote on Monday. 
  • Carroll city officials say a $772,000 road-and-landscape project will continue south on Court Street to the one-block section between Fourth Street and Fifth Street - even as some library advocates say a proposal to expand the lending facility into that area remains a viable proposition. 
  • Carroll City officials have posted a maximum-occupancy sign of 49 people for the council chambers in the Farner Government Building. 
  • A letter to city hall from former Carroll City Councilman R.W. Collison raising the specter of fallout from a potential fire or terrorist attack on a crowded Carroll Public Library has prompted officials to immediately enforce the full extent of the fire code at the lending institution. 
  • Greg Nath, who has been parks and recreation director for Perry since 2007, was hired Wednesday night as Lake City's new city administrator. 
  • Two Audubon librarians and three library trustees quit their posts last month after library leaders voted to reinstate Gail Richardson as public library director, a job she held for 27 years before she retired in November. 
  • City Council appoints new member amid hiring flap
    City leaders used a blind questionnaire Wednesday to appoint a new city councilman to replace one who resigned last month when he was hired as the city administrator but was fired a week later amid residents' complaints. 
  • Carroll Council will send lazy river project to August vote
    Carroll City Council plans to send a roughly $1.3 million Carroll Family Aquatic Center expansion project - specifically a long lazy river - to voters in an Aug. 5 special election. 
  • Branstad signs Home Base Iowa Act into law
    Gov. Terry E. Branstad, joined by Iowa Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds, Monday signed the Home Base Iowa Act into law at the Iowa Gold Star Military Museum at Camp Dodge in Johnston, Iowa. In addition, Branstad signed Senate File 2352 providing an additional homestead credit for disabled veterans.
