Watseka Mayor John Allhands will look for new direction after a special city council meeting didn’t materialize (Saturday). The mayor said ‘we’ll have to see how the council wants to move forward.’
A special meeting was scheduled to discuss the city's water and sewer system. Mayor Allhands anticipated a closed meeting to legally discuss the current contract with ERH Enterprises. But that didn't happen. The Council instead voted 5-3 not to go into executive session.
Following were brief remarks and then a motion to adjourn.
What happens moving forward, Allhands says, is up to the city council. He said it’s the council members who have to have to make themselves aware of what’s going on, where we’re at, and how we get ready for the future in operating the city’s water and sewer system.
