Monday’s Wood River City Council meeting will tackle the possible resumption of spending on the Rec Center project. There are three items on Monday’s agenda concerning the issue: one approving the resumption of spending, another increasing the line item in the budget to do so, and another to execute the agreement with the state to receive the $2.5-million grant that had recently been approved.

Mayor Cheryl Maguire tells The Big Z they needed to act quick to meet the state deadline and not lose that money.

In another move that has sparked some discussion, Councilman Chris Stanley has resigned from the board. He will be replaced by Sonya Hagman, pending board approval. She is the current Deputy Circuit Clerk for Madison County and has been involved in the community on various levels, according to Maguire. Monday’s meeting will be held at 7pm at the Roundhouse, and the normal health and safety protocols will be in effect.
