The Cresco City Council met on October 17, 2022, at 5:00 pm for a special ribbon cutting ceremony for the City’s new electric vehicle charger. Council Members Kriener, McConnell, Bouska, and Carman were present. Council member Fortune was absent.
Council Member Bouska thanked everyone for coming out for the ceremony. She also thanked Fareway for allowing the City to use two of their parking spaces for the EV Charging Station. She also thanked the Iowa Department of Transportation, Alliant Energy, Jason and Spiff with HCED/Chamber, Bob’s Electric, and PWD Widell for working with her to get this project done. Most of the project will be paid by a grant through the Iowa DOT Volkswagon Settlement Environmental Mitigation Trust with the City of Cresco paying the remainder.
Bouska noted that the city wanted to install the charger so that EV owners would feel more comfortable coming to events in Cresco and to help make Howard County more inviting for EV owners, who will be an increasing share of travelers in coming years. Owners of two Teslas, one Chevrolet Bolt, and one Mitsubishi i-MiEV brought their electric cars for people to look at and they answered questions.
The next regular Cresco City Council meeting will be October 17, 2022, at 5:30 pm at Cresco City Hall.
