City of IonaSmall Town With A Big Heart

Looking for agenda, minutes, city code? Check out our new electronic document system!

We are excited to introduce to you the City’s new Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) which is designed to store a wide range of electronic documents and file types. It offers the ability to save documents in a location that is secure, searchable, easy to use, and can manage the lifecycle of a document automatically (retention). It helps saves the employee(s) time in finding and accessing needed documents, easy to distribute documents throughout an organization and to the public if needed, reduces paper records filing costs, we are able to easily back-up documents in case of disaster (flood, fire, theft, etc.), and saves on the wear and tear of paper records. Currently, the public can find city code, all documents related to city council meetings, and ordinances/resolutions. We are in the beginning stages of this project, but hope to add more in the future. To look for a record please click on the Laserfiche logo which will allow you to browse or search for a document.


Community

“Walking/Biking Path” – The City is proud to announce that we have been awarded a Child Pedestrian Grant in the amount of $125,500 to help install a walking/biking path on the south side of Iona Elementary School. The paved path will be located on Denning Avenue from Ashwood Lane, going all the way to Barnes Avenue. We are thrilled to have this addition in our community and are hopeful this will increase safety and accessibility for school-aged children, and all residents of Iona. Construction will begin in late spring/early summer of this year. More information on the construction schedule will be released as it gets closer.
