The problem seems to be more research in funding for the demolition and unresolved legal issues.
Centerville resident and attorney, Jim Milani, a vocal council critic concerning nuisance properties, addressed the council with his concerns. Milani said he wants the council to consider where demolition funds come from, realize some nuisance property owners have financial resource to pay for their property's demolition and before the city accepts any demolition bid they need to know where the demolition money is coming from.
Part of the council's meeting included department head reports.
Patrick Antonen, city administrator, said the council needs to set up work sessions to discuss financing alternatives for the State Street paving project. Antonen didn't elaborate what financing options the council might want to pursue.
Antonen said he plans to look into the city's pool contract, Golfview annexation and FEMA public assistance funding.
Jay Rogers with the Centerville Municipal Airport said they raised a total of $3,644 from the recent "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" fundraising event in Centerville.
The meeting adjourned at 6:14 p.m. to meet again in regular session at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 3 at City Hall.
The change in meeting date is due to the Labor Day holiday.
