Anyone who attended the Columbus Junction City Council meeting Wednesday

and blinked, likely missed the action, as the council handled its business and

adjourned in about two minutes.

In what city officials acknowledged was a record-setting short meeting, the

council approved bills and a liquor license renewal for the American Legion.

Mayor pro temp-ore Mark Huston also reported Cole Construction, Keosauqua,

had planned to begin work on the Iowa River improvement project last week,

but had to delay because of weather. Huston said the contractor had not

rescheduled the start of work, but has assured city and project officials most of

the work would be completed by spring.
