Carmi City Council approves property re-zoning

The Carmi City Council met for the second time in May on Tuesday night.  Before the meeting, a public hearing on the rezoning of property at 308 and 310 Olive Street as Business (Zone II) was held.

Following the approval of the May 3 meeting minutes, April financial reports and vendor invoices for the City and Light and Water Departments, the Council unanimously approved the rezoning with no discussion.

The Council also unanimously approved an agreement between the City and Illinois Animal Control for adoption of pets at the pound.  Animals must be held for seven days and a $50 fee was put into place to reimburse the City for updating shots and a checkup.

Chamber of Commerce Director Holly Healy updated the Council on Bicentennial festivities planned for the Memorial Day weekend.  Brady Amusements will have carnival rides and food booths at the Fairgrounds May 26-29.  Other activities, including a chowder, contests, and videos will also take place that weekend.

Mayor Pollard stated plans for a 4th of July concert are still being made.

With no other business, the meeting adjourned at 5:40pm.
