Lee Beckman will do the work for applying for the grant for free. They would like to get the engineering work.
Discuss a new Building for City Hall (10N. Pike St.)
City hall currently is a pole barn. It is not handicap accessible other building would be easier to make handicap accessible, building is bigger, all updated. Asking price is $45,000.00. ask some questions about the roof. Look into Birkey’s possibly buying current City hall. Table until next month
