WGIL Newsroom . Local News 189

6-23-14 Galesburg City CouncilThe Galesburg City Council will be continuing its regular work session meetings tonight.

The meetings are typically designed to work toward solidifying the next fiscal year budget.

Tonight’s meeting, however, will partially deal with a matter presented during last week’s City Council meeting.

The City’s Engineering Department has suggested eliminating the right turn lane on East Main Street at Chambers Street to improve traffic flow.

Aldermen expressed several issues with the turn and it’s possible encroachment on historic property, mainly, that of the U.S. Postal Service Building.

The City’s Engineering Department is working under a deadline, partially explaining why the matter was pushed to the work session.

City Administration will also be presenting a storm water utility study. The City’s Public Works Department has hinted at possible upgrades to the storm water system in the past.

Tonight’s meeting begins at 5:30 at Galesburg City Hall.
