City Council will meet Tuesday, Jan. 17, in a business session at 7 p.m., followed by a work session. Both sessions are open to the public.

The business session will be held in the Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building, which is located at 427 Patton St.

The work session will be held on the same floor, but across the hall in the Council Conference Room. In work sessions, Council reviews non-routine matters that will be voted upon in future business meetings.

During the business session, City Council will vote on a resolution authorizing a second phase of the Pine Street storm drainage project. The project will improve the existing inadequate system, which is causing flooding behind and under the houses on the south side of the street. The Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority owns the majority of the homes on Pine Street that are affected.

The second phase will use federal money to safeguard the investment and rehabilitation of the homes on this street and the quality of life for its current and future residents.

City Council also is scheduled to vote on three other matters:

  • A resolution reaffirming the City’s obligation to back a loan for the purchase and up fit of the former Dimon building at 512 Bridge St. The original mortgage carries a five-year fixed interest term that now is due for renewal.
  • A budget amendment to provide for receipt of $3.2 million in federal and state funding to rehabilitate a taxiway that provides access to the primary runway at Danville Regional Airport.
  • A budget amendment to provide for receipt of a grant in the amount of $10,091 to promote recycling and to provide materials and supplies for educational programs and litter collection.

For the work session, the agenda includes a review of monthly financial statements and discussion on steps to establish a bike share program.

River City TV, the city’s government access channel, will air the business session. Watch it live on cable (Comcast channel 10 and Gamewood channel 122) or streaming on the River City TV Facebook page.

River City TV does not air work sessions, but they are open to the public.
