MCLEANSBORO – The McLeansboro City Council approved the formation of a committee to explore a new facility for the city hall after a motion was approved at Wednesday’s meeting. The committee will be presented and approved by the council at the March meeting.
In the fall, the city considered remodeling the current city hall, passing a motion to begin engineering work. In January, a motion died to continue the work.
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. 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 meets again on Wednesday, March 11 at 6 p.m. at McLeansboro City Hall.
