City Receives Bid on Downtown Property

Tuesday, April 02, 2024 Posted by Dave Uphoff
Only one bid was submitted for the purchase of city property at the northwest corner of Fifth and Chestnut streets at the Monday night city council meeting.  The bid by John Crowley of Crowley Physical Therapy was $20,000 which was the minimum starting bid.  The council did not take any action on the bid during the meeting.  The property is the site of the terrible fire that destroyed all the buildings on that site in 2011.   

In other business the council approved a downtown beautification grant to Sweet Amy's located in the 400 block of Chestnut street next to Minonk Lanes.  The amount of the grant was $7730 while the total project cost is estimated at $9663.  The owner Amy Bosman will replace the doors and windows in the building and repair some of the steel fa├žade.

The council approved an Intergovernmental Agreement for Animal Control Services with Woodford County.  City Administrator Bill Moline said there is no cost associated with the agreement.  The council also approved the appointment of Sue Kleen to the Filger Library Board.

City Administrator Bill Moline said the lining project was started today at 2nd and 3rd streets.  He said the finance committee will be meeting to finalize items for the 24/25 budget that will be considered and hopefully approved on the 15th.
