Welcome to Afton Iowa
The Iowa DOT will be going out for bids on Hwy 169 from Filmore Street south to city limits with construction happening in 2016 and possibly a chance in the fall of 2015. More updates will be given as we receive them.
Union County will be working on Old Hwy 34 during the Fiscal year July 2016-2017. The City will be responsible for Jefferson Street (Old Hwy 34 inside the City Limits) and will be working jointly with the county on this project.
Casey’s General Stores Corporation has donated their parcel of land to the north of their Afton Casey’s store to the City for use on the electric substation project. The Cities electrical engineering firm said that the cost of dirt work on current location exceeded the estimate and was hopeful that moving it further south on Casey’s parcel, since it was undisturbed land, will have better soil. Soil testing is scheduled for the end of February with hopes of having results by the March Council meeting.
