Manchester City Council Meeting Recap

The Manchester City Council met last night.

The Council is considering whether to build a new city shop. Demmer Architecture developed a proposal for a new public works facility, with the cost estimated at about two-point-four million dollars. It will be discussed again at the next council meeting.

The Council also heard an update from Manchester Good to Great on developing a potential trail through the former compost site. The Council has agreed to move ahead with marking the trail’s path for use as soon as possible, with the option of making it a paved path in the future.

The Council also approved snowmobile routes, increased holiday pay for part-time dispatchers, approved the lowest bids for city sidewalk and nuisance snow removal bids submitted by Mark Fink and heard a presentation on the City’s TIF Report from Spear Financial.
