WATERLOO (KWWL) -

 The Waterloo City Council will vote Monday on a plan to purchase the building of what used to be the Hostess bakery plant in downtown Waterloo.  If passed, the city will spend up to $415,000 on the building in an effort to encourage development.

The bakery closed back in 2012 after Hostess Brands filed for bankruptcy.  Flowers Foods Inc. did purchase the building after that but decided to do nothing with it.
