Also to be discussed in workshop, and then subsequently voted on during the regular meeting is a resolution supporting an application for Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program, or ITEP Funds regarding East State Street.

Council members will also review and vote on an agreement for a bio solids management program at the Wastewater Treatment Plant, as well as a lime residuals management program at the Water Treatment Plant.
