- Establishing 2013 Harrison Park Golf Course golf fees.
Among the fee increases, the adult single regular 2013 fee would increase by $25 to $700.
- Authorizing an extension of an option to purchase farmland for the city’s potential future yard waste site on the east end of Liberty Lane.
The property is owned by the Schlorff family.
Ahrens said aldermen discussed in closed session earlier this year the property and entered into a real estate option agreement. The option price was $1,000. Extending the option that has expired isn’t costing more.
Ahrens said the permit review process is moving forward with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.
City officials could have an ordinance to purchase the property at the end of November.
“At this stage it appears the site is suitable,” Ahrens said.
Sometime in 2013 the city will have to leave its leased yard waste site at the Brickyard Landfill. Costs for a new yard waste site were included in the city’s five-year plan of increased garbage and yard waste fees.
