Where the Rails Cross the River

FROM THE DESK OF THE MAYOR

 At the last Council Meeting, we approved a Redevelopment Agreement with a local developer who is going to take over the building at the corner of Second and Walnut Streets, commonly known as the Bacon Building. The building has had many valuable tenants over the years; but not in a while. The building was deemed to be unsafe and the City was basically forced to take ownership about a year ago. It has sat vacant for some time. But now, it will be brought back into its useful life with retail space on the first floor and apartments on the second floor. More to come!

 The last Downtown Thursday - Corn Boil event - seemed to be a big success. There were a lot of people there and everyone seemed to be having a good time. I’ve never seen the line for corn as long as it was this time.

 The next Downtown Thursday event will be on August 30th and the theme is “Back to School Bash”. That’s right – the next school year is just around the corner. Next thing we know, leaves will begin to drop, and the time will “fall” back. So, with this season coming on, please watch out for kids walking to and from school, waiting for the bus, and just generally out on the streets at strange hours. Be careful!

 The City Council has been struggling to understand the possibility of being annexed into the Chillicothe Community Fire District. It would seem that many Aldermen are against being annexed, but they don’t seem to understand, or accept, the facts and affects of the citizens of Chillicothe if we are annexed. If you have the chance, ask your Alderman to try to explain it to you. You’ll be surprised in their responses…. 

 That’s all for this time. See you around town!
