Tuesday night’s City Council meeting interaction between Mayor Zack Tucker and Alderman Cedric Leonard was the lead story, Wednesday, with a video that has been viewed 1,700 times. The topic of the heated discusion was whether the mayor was legally allowed to cast a tie-breaking vote in the special called council meeting, which sent the $10 million event center proposal the voters on December 8.
That video, along with updates to the issues involved are linked, above.
The day continued with the campaign kick-off event for Yes for Monticello, which will be posted later today.
After all of the agenda items, at Tuesay night’s City Council meeting, alderman Cedric Leonard began asking questions about the legality of the previous meetings vote to pass on to voters a 1/4 cent sales tax to be used for an event center, specificly, was it legal for the mayor to cast the deciding vote at a special called meeting.
Several topics and projects were updated at the recent parks committee meeting.
There will be a special called meeting of the Monticello City Council, tonight at 6 PM, to consider passing on to city voters, a 1/4 cent sales tax issue, designed to build a 3,000 seat event center, which was declined to be put on the ballot, last Monday, by the DrewCounty Quorum Court.
At Monday night’s Quorum Court meeting, the JP’s sent one issue to the voters of Drew County, in a December 8 election.
Money raised by this project will be given to a city employee, who ,is expcted to be off work for 6 months, for medical expenses, due to a serious illness.

At 6 pm, the city council will meet in a special called meeting to approve accepting “leftover grants from other state airports” to be used for improvements at the Monticello Airport.
After that brief meeting, a committee of 4 council members will meet (here’s hoping all members stay for this important topic) to discuss the “definition of business and residential customers,” as it pertains to “multiple businesses in a structure,” and how a home/business is classified on city water bills.
At Monday’s Quorum Court meeting, the QC asked to meet with local doctors to get their opionion of the proposed hospital expansion (and contionuation of the 1/2 cent library tax) Members of the DMH board also attended.
Former UAM Chencellor Jack Lassiter updated the group on the status of the proposed convention center.
Mayor Zack Tucker summarozes the recent alchohol time service changes, approved at the last City Council meeting, and upcoming events to the MEDC board and guests.
The event was held at the UAM Library, and was sponsored by the Chamber of Comerce.
Due to technical difficulties, the narration of the video did not sustain its quality through production.
The excercie was planned to train Monticello Fire Dept. personell to perform “rope rescues” for trapped fictims, whether it be from outside a building, or inside of an industrial site.
Childcare centers potentionally involved in this change include:
A well-needed, somewhat-heated discussion developed, Tuesday night, from a boring topic, dealing with water meter deposits for multi-unit complexes.
The long-time question of home/businesses getting commercial bills was brought up by councilman Joe Meeds, and will get studied and clarified in the near future.
As whatever is going to happen, Saturday draws near, local residents are agreeing that it doesn’t belong in Drew County, and not taking sides about who is right.
In an earlier “summary” of a potential out-of-town group meeting, MLive did not use their accepted name or initials. Again, this report will not do so, in order to “Google proof” the article.
The City Council met for its regular monthly meeting, Tuesday, with one member absent.
An ordinance was presented to amend Monticello City Code to amend the limitations of hours of operation of private clubs within the city limits, at Tuesday night’s meeting.
