Waterloo Council to Hear about Recycling, Deal with Block Party Requests

The Waterloo City Council kicks off a series of meetings this(Mon) afternoon with a 4:20 work session to discuss the future of the city’s recycling program.  That’ll be followed by a review of some edits to Title-One of the city code, which deals with council procedures and behavior.

During the regular meeting beginning at 5:30, the council will be asked to vote on a request by the Main Street organization, to close off West 4th Street, between Washington and Jefferson Street, for several Saturdays this month and next, to create a pedestrian mall and beer garden.  The request is to shut down the area from noon to 2 am on those Saturdays, but the Waterloo Police Dept. is recommending a later opening, sometime in the afternoon, and an earlier closing — 11 pm.

That stretch of West 4th is home to at least five bars.
