How We Work

Only by honoring our past and acknowledging where we are at in the present can we plan and build for the future. Our vision for the future of the City of Ottumwa and Wapello County has been built out of hundreds of community conversations, advice from experts in their respective fields, best practices learned from our peers all over the country who have succeeded where others have failed and vast amounts of research and hard data. Within all that we do, our values are the compass that guides us in our work.
