Oskaloosa, Iowa – Oskaloosa Mayor Dave Krutzfeldt swore in Bob Drost as 2nd Ward City Council member on Monday night.

Krutzfeldt also swore in Oskaloosa Police Officer Jared Van Wyk, who is originally from Pella, Iowa.

Van Wyk completed a bachelors degree in criminal justice and psychology at Dordt College. While there, Van Wyk interned with the Pella Police Department, South Dakota State Penitentiary, and the youth residential home with Hope Haven at Rock Valley, Iowa.

The Council heard from MCRF Director Sherry Vavra. Vavra outlined all of the groups that utilize the Lacey Recreational Complex, especially during the past quarter.

Vavra also highlighted the trail tram tours and the success of bringing the sights of Oskaloosa to groups, which now also can include a lunch stop.

A motion was made to amend the Oskaloosa Municipal Code in regards to lot width for single-family residential developments. The hope of the change is to allow for the development of existing lots without the need for variances. The amendment would allow for narrower lot widths in areas where the nearby lots also have narrow widths.

The council approved the first reading of the ordinance.

The council took on a proposed change to Oskaloosa Municipal Code in regards to Rental Housing Inspection.
