Lisa Heddens, a long-serving Iowa representative who represented Campustown and the Iowa State campus in the state legislature, has been appointed to fill the vacancy on the Story County Board of Supervisors.

A new assistant city manager for the city of Ames has been selected after a vigorous recruitment process. Debra Schildroth, selected from a nationwide pool of 70 applicants, replaces Bob Kindred who served the city for nearly four decades, retiring in the spring.

The Ames City Council repealed the Rental Cap Ordinance adopted in Spring 2018. The repeal comes in the wake of recently passed state legislation banning rental caps on single family homes and duplexes. While the city can no longer limit the number of rental properties in certain neighborhoods, occupancy changes made to the municipal code are unaffected by the new bill.

In addition to their regularly scheduled meeting, the Ames City Council will meet Tuesday night with the Ames Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Transportation Policy Committee and the Ames Historic Preservation Commission afterwards. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council chambers and is open to the public.
