Public concerns over the EMU/City funded Housing Project were expressed during the Emmetsburg City Council meeting on Mon, Aug 26.

"I'm here tonight to voice my objection to the proposed housing project that is to be funded by the city and the EMU," said Dr. Bill Harris, Emmetsburg resident, addressing the members of the council.

"I have a Doctorate from Iowa State University in Engineering and am a Registered Professional Civil Engineer in AZ and CA. I have over 30 years of professional experience in project and strategic planning."

Dr. Harris acknowledged the shortage of quality, affordable housing in Emmetsburg but disagreed with the city's solution.

""I do believe the city should be looking at the housing as part of an overall strategic plan for the city. However, I do not believe the city should be directly in the housing business."
