A southeast Iowa community may lose millions of state dollars for a civic project unless its mayor takes swift action. Wapello County District Court is being asked to require Ottumwa Mayor Van Gates to sign a contract with Vision Iowa. It’d bring the city 7-point-5 million dollars for a 20-million dollar special events center. Gates refuses to sign the contract saying a resolution, not a motion, was required for him to sign it. A hearing on the petition will be held September 23rd.
