Monday, November 05, 2018 - Posted 8:59:19 PM
In an abbreviated session the Minonk City Council approved a second TIF 1 payment of $19,216.87 to Uftring Automotive and approved a plan for upgrading the water treatment plant over a 5 year period.

Adminstrative Manager Bill Moline said punch list items are completed for the sewer treatment plant upgrades and a final payment application is being prepared. Leaf vacuum pickup is scheduled to start the week of November 12th on the east side of the city. Rules are posted on the MinonkTalk website.  Insurance proposals for the City have been submitted by the Illinois Municipal League and Meyer-Jochums Agency. 

In comments, Alderman John Marcoline said testing of the new leaf vacuum has gone very well and is doing a great job of picking up leaves and then some.  Alderman Russell Ruestman commented on how dark downtown Minonk appears to be at night and recommended the City should look into better lighting.
