The Charleston City Council will meet to vote on five action items, including a bid award, during their meeting Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in City Hall.

The council will vote on a bid from Mid-Illinois Concrete, Inc. to provide concrete for parking improvements for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Recreational Trail Project.

The contract price is $102.50 per cubic yard for a total of $55,042.00.

Funding for the project will come from the Fiscal Year 2019/2020 budget.

According to the resolution, “It is in the best interest of the citizens of the City of Charleston that said bid be accepted.” Mid-Illinois Concrete, Inc. was the lowest bidder for the project.

The council will also vote on an ordinance to provide sensible rehabilitation within the Tax Increment Financing district for 614 Jackson Ave.

The ordinance would authorize a grant in the amount of $30,893 to give for the rehabilitation of 614 Jackson Ave.

The council will also vote on a resolution authorizing a contract for administration and coordination services for community for a Community Development Block Grant.

If passed, the resolution would authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute documents between the City and the Coles County Regional Planning and Development Commission in regard to the CDBG the city was recently awarded.

Other items on the agenda include the mayor’s reappointment of Heather Kelly to a three-year term on the Charleston Tourism Advisory Board and a raffle license for Camp New Hope and CCAR Industries.

Following the action items, time is reserved for members of the public to address the City Council. No action will be taken on matters not listed on the agenda, and the Council is not required to take any further action or to discuss the matter further.

The City Council asks that those who choose to address the Council speak into the microphone, limit the presentation to three minutes and avoid repetitive comments.
