Before Chillicothe Council's session, the Carlisle was the focus...again. And, a service promised to a recent annex is under way.
Nancy Ames held the third of at least four committee and review meetings on the city's proposed role in resurrecting the Carlisle Building. This time, the focus was financials.
Next will be a discussion of the lease itself, before the proposal goes all three reads...which needs to be passed by its September 30th deadline.
But this is not the same situation that voters said "no" to a few years ago, when the city was proposing to take the bulding on all by itself. Now, a developer is taking all of the risk.

Pat Patrick dealt with a few aspects of the sewer line that is finally reaching Neenah Gardens at the far end of Orange Street.
The city is saving money by doing most of the work itself, so the funds needed to be re-balanced with an ordinance this session. And then a few outside contracts are coming up.
Residents will have two years to connect, and they can pay the old $300 fee, instead of the new $1,000 fee. Everything is hoped to be finished by the end of November.
The city will also pay down last year's bond to fund for the project, from $800,000 down to $600,000.
Council also passed a refinancing of the bond for the new transit facility, reduced by a $100,000 payment by the service itself.
