WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Frank Magsamen says it was the right time when deciding to run for mayor.

Magsamen raised his family in Waterloo, building his home in the city in 1968.

He was a small business owner, fire chief, and Black Hawk County emergency manager before being elected to the Black Hawk County board of supervisors.

"Where we put together a very effective form of government that addresses financial infrastructure needs. And I believe we've done just an excellent job," said Magsamen.

Magsamen says if elected he's like to move towards a different form of government. That's where the mayor becomes a part time position and becomes a voting member of the city council.

"By having people serve on boards and commissions and by getting citizens impute the mayor has the time to be out there working in the community to do this," said Magsamen.

Magsamen says he's also looking to reduce future costs for the city, by looking into green energy.

"Looking at solar panels. Looking at using out bio gas we produce at Waterloo pollution control, looking at how we can reduce waste we produce as individuals in this community," said Magsamen.

He says he also wants to push for stronger public safety.
