Note from the Mayor
Dear Wesley Residents
Hope you had an enjoyable Holiday Season! I am humbled and ready to get to work with my new role of Mayor.  Please call my cell phone if you have questions concerns about city dealings (515-783-4098) if I don’t answer I will get back to you as soon as I can. I wanted to keep you updated on some “going ons” in our great community.  The city is currently looking for a maintenance assistant to work with Lance Ludwig.  We are excited to have one of the candidates join our city team soon.  The city council has been assigned new committees to work and report on.  Please don’t hesitate to call our council members if you have some input or would like to volunteer your time.  Please keep checking the City website and Facebook page for information regarding the city happenings. City Clerk Ricke does great job putting out information on our town and surrounding towns.  Our city council had an opportunity in December to attend a “TIF” meeting in Mason City. In attendance was our city clerk, 3 council men and myself at the meeting. TIF stands for Tax Increment Financing and is a public financing method that is used as a subsidy for redevelopment, infrastructure, and other community-improvement projects.  This was an informational meeting on how “funds” could be used.  Another note: Parents/Grandparents of high school students, if you have a student that is in need of doing some volunteer hours for school.  Please contact city hall and we could accommodate the students with helping do small projects around town. Lastly I hope to write a little segment each month in our town’s newsletter to keep you up dated on what and how things are going.
Sincerely-Vahn Schumacher-Mayor
