Macomb City Council Vote and Public Meeting Today
The Macomb City Council is expected Monday to vote on awarding a nearly $565,000 contract to Laverdiere Construction.
The company was the low bidder for culvert replacements on McArthur, Dudley and Summit streets.
Aldermen will also vote on offering two-year contracts to the Macomb Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and to the Macomb Area Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Development Corporation. In accordance with state guidelines for spending hotel/motel tax income, the majority of which must be dedicated to tourism, 80 percent of the tax revenues would be paid annually to the MACVB, 10 percent would be paid to the chamber and the city would retain 10 percent.
The council will hold a public hearing and first reading on a proposed ordinance creating a restaurant liquor license with Sunday sales for Larry A’s Pizza at 1506 E. Jackson St.
Pizzeria owner Larry Aurelio said this week that he intends to remodel and enlarge his dining room and add some large television sets so patrons can watch sports.
“Some of our customers would like to have beer with their pizza,” he said.
Two other ordinances will be up for first reading. One would authorize the sale of surplus equipment, and the other would allow issuance of a special use permit for a fraternity house at 901 W. Carroll St. The Macomb Planning Commission has recommended that the council defeat the special use proposal.
The city council meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on the second floor of Macomb City Hall.
