The Clinton City Council will meet tonight, with four public hearings leading off the agenda.
The first public hearing concerns the proposed vacating and conveyance of an alley located at 2721 N. Fourth St. to an abutting property owner.
The other three public hearings deal with financial matters. The first is for the purpose of taking action on the authorization of a loan agreement and the issuance of not more than $200,000 in general obligation capital loan notes, the proceeds of which will be used to pay costs of improvements and equipping city facilities, including city hall and the Lyons Fire Station.
The second public hearing is for taking action on the authorization of a loan note agreement and the issuance of not more than $550,000 general obligation capital loan notes, the proceeds of which will be used to pay costs of improvements and equipping recreation areas.
