Short meeting for council

The Fairbury City Council got didn’t waste any time getting down to business Wednesday night in an extremely short meeting at City Hall.

The group approved a ventilation system for the police evidence room at a price of $2,152. The low bid was from Steidinger’s and another bid came in slightly higher. Both are similar products, according to police Chief Mark Travis.

“I recommend we go with the lower bid,” Travis said.

Also at Wednesday’s meeting, the council voted to allow alcohol sales and consumption on city property for Gig’s Place during a March 30 benefit for Geri Garcia starting at 2 p.m. The outdoor event will be held in front of Gig’s.

“They have wristbands, barricades and their own in-house security,” noted Mayor David Slagel.

Citizen Dave Shepherd once again appeared before the council with lingering concerns over poor yard conditions and barking dogs at a residence on West Ash Street. Shepherd said the owners haven’t been there for 22 days and he is worried about the yard smelling when the weather warms.

“Is there some way we can make them clean that up by summer?” Shepherd asked.

Mayor Slagel said the city would start the procedure to eventually get the property cleaned up.

In other matters, the Fairbury City Council:

-Approved a liquor license application for Take 5 Rendezvous, LLC at 310 S. Third Street.

-Authorized pay request 8 for the sewer project at a cost of $702,060.38.
