The Manchester City Council will hold a public hearing tonight. The City recently worked out a tentative agreement with Regional Medical Center over the sale of the vacated North 6th Street/West Fayette Street right-of-way east of the hospital. Regional Medical Center would like to purchase the right-of-way so they can move forward with expanding the hospital and building a two-story addition. According to the tentative agreement, RMC would pay nearly 88-hundred dollars for the right-of-way. The agreement also includes the cost share to relocate the 12th water main, as well as the transfer of ownership of a portion of the sanitary sewer main in the right-of-way. The public hearing on the proposed sale will be held at tonight’s city council meeting, which begins at 5 o’clock. The council could make a decision tonight.
The City Council will also hold public hearings tonight on the General Obligation Essential Purpose Loan Agreement and the General Obligation General Purpose Loan Agreement. And the City has included the topic of frozen service lines on the council’s agenda for tonight.
In other area meetings today, the Delaware County Board of Supervisors will meet at 1:15 pm, with their agenda including a discussion on the proposed county jail renovation and expansion project. And the Dubuque County Board of Supervisors will hold their regular meeting at 5:30 pm.
