Hoopeston council hears complaints about motel



+ The petition to change the liquor ordinance to allow Marathon to include hard liquor in his business was brought before the council.

"If someone would want to make a motion to expand the liquor license at the next meeting," said Crusinberry, "we'll turn it over to attorney Mudd."

Alderman Carl Ankenbrand stated he would make the motion, but would like the original proposed ordinance. The ordinance will be on the next council agenda.

+ Barbara and Ron Knuth came before the board to seek assistance with a neighbor who has raw sewage lying in a 12-foot by 15-foot area outside their house. The sewage is beginning to run into another yard. The problem, said Barbara Knuth, has been going on for nearly four years.

"Nobody should have to put up with this," said Ron Knuth.

Jeff Keith, local resident, noted that the USDA flyer in the city hall display case makes loans at one percent that could be looked into as a solution to the problem.

Crusinberry said he would make some calls and see if something could be done this time to alleviate the problem.

+ Learned Hoopeston was commended by the Department of Health for perfect compliance for 12 months at the water treatment plant. Also Steve Baker, water department superintendent, was recognized by the Illinois Rural Water Association as the Water System of the Year runner up.

The next Hoopeston City council will begin at 7 p.m. April 15 City Hall, 301 W. Main St.
