It was a light agenda Monday, September 14, 2015, for the Chillicothe City Council.
One item was an ordinance to vacate an alley on the east side of town between St. Louis Street and Milwaukee Avenue and between Bridge and Montgomery Streets.
City Administrator Ike Holland explained there was no opposition to the request and the area is in disrepair.

Council followed suit by approving the ordinance 5-0.
Council also approved the Mayor’s request to reappoint John Marcolla, Jane Neal and Betty Preston Steele to the Hospital Board.
Rounding out the evening’s proceedings was a review by City Administrator Ike Holland of the Way Finding Sign Program.
This series of signs denoting directions to certain sections and attractions in the city would allow visitors to find their way around the community with ease.
The city would not pay for the manufacture or installation. That would be funded by Main Street Chillicothe. Administrator Holland explained the initial process.

The three sections during the presentation of the tentative signage were the North End, Downtown and South End. Those in attendance commented on the project saying it would benefit the community. There were also a few suggestions to modify the signage.
After city officials work out the details the signs will be submitted to MoDOT for final approval. Once approved the signs would be put up by the street department.
Council gave full consensus to move forward with the project.
The Chillicothe City Council will gather for their second session of the month Monday, September 28, 2015, at 6:30 p.m. at Chillicothe City Hall, 715 Washington St.
