The Chillicothe City Council will meet in regular session this evening. Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross speak with City Administrator Ike Holland:
A discussion of the livable streets program is on the agenda. Holland said this is an opportunity to look at the future development of streets within the city from all points of view. “Livable Streets is a state program that works with communities to ensure that, as they grow, we have the proper streets that will allow those that are handicapped, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycles, and cars to use them in a safe manner,” said Holland, “This means proper signage, crosswalks, and medians.”
Also up for consideration is the schedule for demolition of the old hospital building. As of this morning, a date for that project has not been scheduled. “Tonight we will go over the timeline because we have to get the asbestos and lead paint inspections, ” said Holland, “We will also do a timeline for the salvaging of copper and wiring in the building. Then we will look at when we will start the actual demolition.”
Tonight’s agenda also includes a PowerPoint presentation by the police department, the closed bridge on LIV 274, and an amendment to the airport grant for land acquisition. The session is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in council chambers.
