(Des Moines, Iowa) -- The Des Moines City Council is reviewing the city's franchise agreement with MidAmerican Energy.

The city's current contract with the company expires next month, and the council passed a consideration Monday to extend the contract by 13 years. Some Des Moines residents at the meeting said the contract is too long, citing environmental concerns.

The topic will come up again at the Des Moines City Council's next meeting and will need to be decided by early next month ahead of the current contract's expiration.
