MASON CITY – The City of Mason City is looking to collect on some debts.

In a City Hall memo, City Administrator Brent Trout  says the City is “moving to clear the books of outstanding service charges.”  If approved by the City Council, the County Treasurer would be authorized to collect the unpaid charges.  Trout said the charges go against the property and are collected with ordinary property taxes.

The City Council will vote on this measure at Tuesday night’s meeting.

    Mason City will do whatever it takes to drive people away and discourage businesses from staying or coming to this town.

    I think it’s hilarious that businesses leave town to relocate less than 10 miles away..Ask ANY landlord if they regret having propery in MC and I’m sure you will hear a resounding yes. This town is anti-business and anti-growth.

      You can thank the Chamber of Commerce for the “no growth”.

        “to” was the correct application. To, meaning toward meaning, toward stupid.

        Get a grip.

        I do live here and I think the post is correct in his observation. If you like being fleeced out of your money by city hall, then you fit the “stupid” label perfectly!

        I wish I could leave but currently stuck until my contract is up. Then, I am out of her too!

      If you look on line Latham and Paulsen sold the house on contract. The folk’s who bought it owe the money.

    first, why is the city now worried about a $500 water bill, when they let the fairgrounds have a $30,000 one
    second, why was it allowed to get high in the first place.

    what bookmeyer need for money to waste on something no one needs?
