- Amending city code pertaining to video gaming licenses. Proposed were annual licensing fees of $100 for each video gaming terminal and $50 for the licensed premise.
Aldermen removed the fees primarily due to duplicative state regulations/fees.
Eisenhauer provided the eighth majority vote needed for the fees removal saying that the fees would have covered some of the city’s expenses (police time, sticker fees, etc.), but he realized most aldermen were against the fees.
- Applying for a firefighter assistance grant to cover Emergency Medical Services equipment bags that cost $2,800.
- Approving auditing services to be completed by Clifton Gunderson for a fee not to exceed $48,800 for the city, $4,000 for the library and $8,900 for Danville Mass Transit.
- Amending city code pertaining to possession of cannabis and controlled substances to allow the city to seize money related to illegal drug sales under $200.
Meeting set on dams
A public meeting to hear a presentation by Illinois Department of Natural Resources officials on the Vermilion River and Ellsworth Park dams will begin at 6 p.m. April 30. The location has yet to be determined. The city likely will look at the David S. Palmer Arena or another larger location than city hall.
