WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A new plan approved by the Waterloo City Council is requiring new homes built after July 1 to have a garage.  The council voted 5 to 1 in favor of changing the zoning ordinance.  

Councilman Steve Schmitt was the one vote against it, saying it should have been discussed with contractors before a council vote.  Officials from the Habitat for Humanity group, who typically builds homes without garages, were in favor of the new plan.
