ATTENTION AFTON COMMERCIAL PROPERTY OWNERS:
If you own a commercial property in Afton that is vacant and you need funds for building renovations and you have a proposed use for the building, there is a grant through the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) that might help. We are accepting proposals from qualifying commercial property owners in Afton by Friday, November 8, 2019. The City Council will review all proposals to determine the property that would be the most catalytic and most likely to be funded and work with that property owner to submit a grant application to IEDA (Community catalyst means a building or buildings which, if remediated, would stimulate additional economic growth or reinvestment in the community).
NOTE: This State grant is very competitive and there are no guarantees our grant application will be funded.
Please review the attached letter and grant proposal (forms can also be downloaded from City of Afton website www.aftoniowa.com)

It's that time of year again! Mowing season is here.

MOWING OF PROPERTIES
City of Afton Ordinance Chapter 50.02 (9):
Mowing of Properties: Any property within the City of Afton, whether vacated or non-vacated, is required to be mowed any time the vegetation reaches a height of more than eight (8) inches.
Penalty: The City or its agents may mow any property that is not mowed and a charge of $75.00 per hour for such mowing, plus a surcharge of $100.00, will be charged to the property owner. Any property owners who fail to mow their properties, thus allowing the same to be mowed by the City or their agents, and who do not provide payment for the mowing as required, will be assessed by the City for such costs, which will be collected in the same manner as general property taxes.
