Street improvements and a proposal for a new 911 tracking system - KTIV News 4 Sioux City IA: News, Weather and Sports

Street improvements and a proposal for a new 911 tracking system are on the Norfolk Council agenda


A couple of weeks ago, the Norfolk Planning Commission gave their seal of approval to the city of Norfolk's one and six year street Improvement plan.

Monday night, the full city council will hold a public hearing and vote on the plan.

Among the long term projects is a $35 million proposal to add a turning lane along busy Benjamin Avenue between 1st street and highway 81.

It's set to begin in 2015.

The biggest expenditure in the coming fiscal year is the city's portion of the Northeast Industrial Highway that would connect highway 35 east of Norfolk with highway 81 north of town.

Also Monday night, the council will consider the purchase of a new $197,000 911 call taking system.

Officials say the equipment it's replacing is beginning to have issues with parts availability and the price of the new one is coming in under budget.

The Norfolk City Council will meet Monday night at 5:30 p.m.
