MCLEANSBORO – The McLeansboro City Council is looking to form a committee to explore a new facility for City Hall after a motion was approved at Wednesday’s meeting. The council approved the formation of a committee to be presented and approved by the council at the March meeting.
In the fall, the city looked at remodeling the current City Hall, passing a motion to start engineering work on the remodel of the current facility. A motion died to continue that work at January’s meeting.
The city’s zoning administrator, Pat Stevens, told the council something has to be done about the current City Hall situation.
The council also approved the low bid from Teffertiller Motors of McLeansboro for the purchase of a new truck for the city’s electric department. The truck will cost $33,690 after trade-in of the current vehicle. And in other business, the city approved moving the hiring of lifeguards for the city pool up a month for the coming year, and also approved the bid of $5,500 to demolish the building at 501 E. St. Charles St.
The council will meet again on Wednesday, March 11 at 6 p.m. at McLeansboro City Hall.
