Rebranding Oskaloosa is moving forward. A Brand Development Committee made up of local government officials, business leaders, retailers, young professionals and interested citizens are working through the process.
The city wants to improve streets in Oskaloosa through a concept called "Complete Streets." City staff says Complete Streets makes it easier for residents and visitors to walk, bike or drive to their destinations, and can help stimulate the local economy.
If you do not have health insurance through your job or a government plan, you may be able to buy it through the Health Insurance Marketplace. At Mahaska Health Partnership, eight Certified Application Counselors such as Emily Brown are ready to guide you through the process.
Changing the concept of Oskaloosa's streets will be put on hold. At least for two more weeks. This week, the city council voted 3-3 towards a resolution that adopts the concept known as "Complete Streets."
The City of Oskaloosa will provide more funding for Forest Cemetery. Earlier this year, the city agreed to give the cemetery $100,000 dollars this year. But the cemetery requested an additional $50,000 dollars in this current fiscal year.
