Short, routine agenda to mark first meeting in new council chambers
The session will mark the first for council since the city moved from temporary quarters at Hill Plaza into the new home of city government at the intersection of South Madison and East Columbus streets.
Council is expected to accept and approve an interest-free, 20-year loan of $1,014,159 from the state revolving loan program for phase one of repair/replacement of the Mollies Branch sewer line from Washington Street to Main Street, one of the main collector lines in the city sewer system. The current line has leaks that allow groundwater to infiltrate the sewer system, causing problems at the sewer plant and adding treatment costs to wastewater operations. .
In the only other action agenda item, council is expected to approve an agreement between the city and the Adams Company of Warsaw for administrative and technical housing services for hazard mitigation program grants (buyouts/elevations) for hurricane recovery. The Adams Company will be paid $17,000 for services rendered.
Council also will hear comments from members of the public and receive written monthly reports for June from all departments in the city government.
