CITY COUNCIL APPROVES APPLICATION FOR A LIQUOR LICENSE TO LOCAL BUSINESS

 

At that meeting, the council approved an application for a license to sell package liquor for Capri IGA. They also authorized the city manager to work on a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) agreement with Capri IGA for the construction of a new addition to the store on the west side of the property next to True Value. Under the TIF, Capri IGA would be eligible for a refund on a portion of the increase of property tax due to the value of the addition. In other action, the council tabled annexation of property adjacent to the Sleep Inn, after hearing from Terry and Sandy Klieinik, whose land adjoins that property. The Klienik's say there is still clean-up from old fuel tanks needed before anything could be built on the location, south of the hotel.  The council authorized the city manager to sign USDA Rural Development Grant Documents to begin the process of getting water to the American Farm Heritage Museum. Under new business, the city manager had good news about the State of Illinois starting to pay bills. The city has received $160,000.00 in Clean Lake funds from the State.
