Several ordinances pertaining to liquor sales and the water treatment plant are on the agenda for the Jacksonville city council tonight.

During the workshop session starting at 6 o’clock prior to the regular meeting, Jacksonville aldermen will discuss whether or not to amend the city’s liquor ordinance under a report from city attorney Dan Beard. Under the city clerk’s report, members of the city council will discuss a request from Municipal Utilities for Lake Mauvaisterre Project reimbursement.

Also during the workshop session, aldermen will discuss the purchase of a copy machine for the Water Treatment Plant. They will also discuss a quote for a Bobcat skid-steer loader for the Water Treatment Plant, and a quote for a trailer for the Water Treatment Plant.

During the regular city council meeting, under the Mayor’s Report, aldermen will view a ceremony for the Jacksonville Fire Department for Service Achievements, Promotions, Swearing-in or presentation of badges. Aldermen will also vote on resolutions to approve the purchases of the Bobcat, the trailer and the copy machine for the Water Treatment Plant. \

All of tonight’s action takes place at the Jacksonville Municipal Building.
