The Aledo City Council agenda – Monday, April 5

Cathy Decker/Staff reporter

The City of Aledo committee of whole will meet at 6:15 p.m. on Monday, April 5, at City Hall, 120 N. College Ave. Appearances by two Aledo citizens – Dick Maynard and Jay Doherty – have been put on the agenda.

The committee of whole will also hear requests for a sign in central park for Aledo Main Street’s Farmer’s Market and a request for a special event permit put on by the Mercer County Crisis Center on May 8, 2010.

The regular council meeting begins at 6:45 p.m. with a full load of action items.

The second reading of two ordinances  -- one to create a fifth Class D liquor license within corporate limits and another amending fees for additional water meters – will be voted on.

The council will also approve the bid for the spring citywide cleanup.

Resolutions to be considered include one to purchase a 2009 Chevy Impala police squad car and a resolution opposing reduction of local government distribution find.

An alignment study proposal for extending East Main Street to Hwy 94 will be voted on. There is also a vote scheduled for a fence setback, an asbestos inspection, the sign request for Farmer’s Market, the May 8 special event request and three Tax Increment Financing ordinances amending the TIF project area to exclude three properties (710 E Main St.; 104 SE 3rd Ave and 114 NE 2nd St.) from the TIF redevelopment area. The three properties are owned directly or indirectly by current Aledo alderman and have been stumbling blocks for TIF discussions and votes.

Two other TIF ordinances are on the agenda involving redevelopment agreements between the city and Millco / Dollar General Store and an agreement with Nation’s Properties / Vitale’s.
