Waterloo City Council gives I-Jobs-funded bid to Wisconsin firm

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Waterloo City Council members are taking some heat for hiring an out-of-state architect for the city's new Public Works Complex.

Members voted 5 -2 to hire Kueny Architects of Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.

The project is being financed by a $5million dollar I-Jobs grant.

Opponents say I-Jobs funds are meant to boost Iowa employment.

Officials say Iowans will make up the work force once construction begins.
