SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City City Council voted to pass and adopt a reduction of the city’s franchise fee from 2 percent to 1 percent at Tuesday’s meeting.

Councilors unanimously passed the reduction after requesting the suspension of the third reading and moving to adopt the ordinance.

The original fee was proposed at 2 percent. Councilors wanted to reduce the charge from 2 to 1 percent in December but the vote split, 3-3. Then-Councilor Amy Corriea wasn’t in attendance to break the tie.

The council decided to suspend the vote until the new councilors took office in January 2010.
