The Carmi City Council met Tuesday night for their second time in February. Prior to the meeting, a public hearing was held, where City CPA Keith Botsch outlined the annual appropriation ordinance.
Following approval of minutes and financials, the Council passed the appropriations ordinance by a unanimous vote.
The Council also accepted a $2500 donation from Pets At Risk for improvements at the City Animal Control facility. The money will be used to insulate the building and to buy new beds.
Alderman Tracy Nelson wanted to remind residents to obey no parking signs posted, particularly around the high school during events.
A flooding issue at 620 Oak Street was brought to the Council’s attention. Mayor Jeff Pollard said that he would coordinate with City Supervisor Mike Buckman to get a sewer crew there to look at the issue.
With no closed session, the meeting adjourned at 5:42 pm, and the Carmi City Council will meet again on Tuesday, March 6th at 5:30 pm.
