Missouri Valley voters to decide on $1.5 million bond for new fire station – Daily Nonpareil - Missouri Valley voters will decide on a $1.5 million bond to construct a new fire station. The Missouri Valley City Council voted 3-0 Tuesday night to approve holding a vote on the bond to a vote. The vote will require a supermajority of 60% to pass, with residents going to the ballot on March 3. The Missouri Valley Volunteer Fire Department is currently housed at a building it shares with City Hall. The facility was built in 1931and between then and now equipment has gotten much much bigger. The fire chief said the biggest challenge faced by the department is the replacement of service vehicles and equipment. The department needs to replace its outdated ambulances, but new models are too big to fit through the station’s garage doors. The department is also in need of additional storage space. Working toward a new station has been a priority of Fire Chief Wohlers since he took over the top spot with the department in 2017. A committee of citizens studied a variety of sites in Missouri Valley that could house the new station and settled on: a section of land on the eastern edge of town off U.S. Highway 30. The city bought the land a few years ago during an effort to build a new first station and City Hall. A $2.4 million bond vote in August of 2016 failed, with 187 votes in opposition and 146 votes in support in an election that required a supermajority. The city is moving forward with a bond amount for less money this time, with City Hall slated to stay put in downtown Missouri Valley. City Clerk Jodie Flaherty said that the committee and an architect has looked at different options for the proposed station. In the past officials have said the fire department has difficulty pulling its vehicles into the station vehicle bays. Additionally, the fire house sits on U.S. Highway 30, the city’s main street, meaning fire calls are sometimes delayed by traffic.

Laborshed Study to be conducted in Shelby County - The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce and Industry is partnering with Iowa Workforce Development and Iowa Economic Development Authority to complete a Laborshed employment study for the Shelby County area. This study will geographically define which communities contribute to Harlan’s workforce, regardless of political boundaries. This defined area is called a Laborshed area and is based upon commuting patterns. The purpose of this Laborshed study is to measure the availability and characteristics of Harlan area workers. Laborshed studies are useful tools for economic development teams and existing or prospective employers to understand the local labor market, make informed expansion and site selection decisions, and maintain/recruit a high-quality workforce. For the success of this study, we will be sending letters to employers in Harlan asking that they provide us with aggregate counts of their employees’ residential ZIP codes. This will allow us to define a commuting pattern for the Harlan area and determine what the scope and scale of Harlan’s Laborshed area is and better understand where Harlan’s workforce resides. A confidential survey of residents will also be conducted to collect workforce characteristic information specific to the area. Residents will receive a letter directing them how to take the survey online and/or they will receive a telephone call to take the survey. The survey call originates out of Cedar Rapids, IA, therefore, the incoming number will have the 319 area code. It is possible that you may receive a text message from their 888 number as well, alerting you to expect a call from them. Survey questions will cover topics such as: employment status, current and desired wages, current and desired benefits, education level, and type of occupation among other things. However, Iowa Workforce Development will not be asking survey takers identifiable information such as: name, social security number, or date of birth. Every year Iowa Workforce Development conducts Laborshed studies across the State. The results of each analysis are publicly available online at www.iowalmi.gov/laborshed. If you have any questions about the Laborshed project, please contact Katie Lippold at 515-281-3035 or Todd Valline at 755-2114

U.S. Census Bureau will start hiring in Iowa next month for 2020 count – Radio Iowa - The federal government is launching a campaign to hire thousands of people across Iowa and the nation to help with the 2020 Census. The bureau’s Sam Fettig urges anyone who’s interested to apply right away. “There may only be a certain number of jobs in any given area, so once those jobs in a certain area are filled, they’re filled,” Fettig says. “So if someone’s interested, the sooner, the better to get that application in.” Fettig says workers go door-to-door to follow up when someone doesn’t respond to census questions on-line, by phone or on the paper form: “We’re hoping to hire really locally,” he says, “so that when someone comes knocking at your door, it’s someone you know and it’s someone who knows your community.” Fettig says work hours are flexible and the pay starts at 14-dollars an hour and is in some cases 16 or even 20-dollars an hour. “For someone even who might have a 9 to 5 job already, it’s a good way to get involved, to help your community, ensure that you have the federal resources and political representation for the next 10 years,” he says. Fettig says the application review and hiring process will begin in January. “It’s important that we hire workers who have connections in the community, who already have pre-existing relationships and trust,” he says. “To help bridge those gaps in understanding or to help address concerns, it really helps if we can hire from local communities.” To apply, visit: 2020census.gov/jobs.
