August 3, 2021 – City staff is taking steps to address numerous issues including congestion, access points, and pedestrian safety at the intersection of Brady Street and 65th Street/Veterans Memorial Parkway, including applying for an Iowa DOT “Traffic Safety Improvement Program” grant for a traffic safety study. With Council approval, the grant would fund 100% of the cost of the traffic study, which is expected to be $80,000.

With increased large developments in northwest Davenport, Fire Station 6 is looking to replace the current Truck 3, a 2002 Sutphen 70-foot aerial platform, with a 100-foot platform to effectively serve the needs of these buildings of larger size and setback. Necessary apparatus replacement ensures that the Davenport Fire Department can provide an exceptional level of public service to the community.

The annual City of Davenport Halloween parade will be making its return this year after a break in 2020 as Council considers a Resolution setting the date and time for Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. This will be the first evening parade since 2014. Additionally, with adoption of the Resolution, trick-or-treat will be set for 4:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 31, 2021.
