    I swung out to Urbandale City Hall on Monday (Feb. 20) for a joint meeting among council members and the water utility board. Normally, this might be less than riveting, but we're having a bit of a metro dust-up over whether Bill Stowe and his regime at Des Moines Water Works should run things around here — as far as producing water goes — or if suburbs such as West Des Moines, Waukee and Urbandale should build their own plants.

    A CNN story this morning reported that UPS trucks almost never take left-hand turns, and by favoring right-hand turns at all times, the carrier can save millions of gallons of fuel each year, and avoid emissions equivalent to over 20,000 passenger cars.

    The high-stakes debate over who should control Greater Des Moines water utilities shot down the rapids this week as Des Moines and suburban officials raced to react to legislation that would dismantle Des Moines Water Works and other local water utilities and force creation of a regional entity.

    With the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s focus on the GlobalDSM initiative, and with Gov. Terry Branstad preparing to become U.S. ambassador to a key importer of farm products — China — we thought it would be a good time to take a spin through some federal export statistics.

    The city of Des Moines is shifting responsibilities among its assistant city managers as a result of the rapid pace of development projects and a desire to allow City Manager Scott Sanders to delegate some authority.

    Assistant City Manager Matt Anderson, who has headed the city's economic development department, now will act as a liaison between the economic development, community development, engineering and housing departments.

    With the exception of the housing department, which operates primarily under federal guidance, Anderson will oversee departments directly connected to most aspects of the city's growth, from development agreements and financial packages to street improvements and zoning issues.

    It is a rare day when a local lender announces its participation in a big development project. Maybe that's due to stereotypical Iowa reticence to toot our own horns. Maybe it's because local lenders defer to their customers to do the tooting. For out-of-town lenders, that isn't so much the case.

    New name, more floors for Blackbird’s tower

    5th and Walnut changes
    Justin Mandelbaum’s planned high-rise development is losing a climbing wall and jazz club that were initially proposed for the $100 million project between Walnut Street and Court Avenue, but is gaining a 50-room boutique hotel.

    Amid a host of proposed state budget cuts this year, there's a relatively small item on the chopping block that could have an outsized impact on some of Central Iowa's most vulnerable residents.
