The Marion County Board of Supervisors approved the rezoning of a parcel of land at their meeting Monday morning. The request came from Bob and Carol De Ronde who requested that a 30 acre portion of their property be rezoned from agricultural to residential 1 so that they can subdivide the land for a housing development. The board approved the rezoning and the preliminary subdivision plat for the property. The De Rondes plan to divide the land into 17 subdivisions of a minimum of one and a half acre each.
In other business the board also approved the authorization to expend final disaster monies on a weather shelter, as recommended by the Indiana Township Trustees, from the Rebuild Iowa Grant Funds for the Attica area. According to Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Anderson the $6,651 that remain in the fund will go toward the purchase of a bus stop shelter in Attica. Anderson says this money will not completely cover the cost of the shelter but the remainder of the money necessary will come from donations and Attica’s cash on hand.
