The Vandalia City Council approved two ordinance amendments that concern their pending Enterprise Zone application. City Administrator LaTisha Paslay informed the council that their renewal application had been denied after the number of accepted applications was dropped from 9 to just 6. However, Paslay says, a new application was immediately opened up and that is what the city and others in the county are looking to complete.
And Mayor Rick Gottman says they do not have to completely redo the application, just portions of it and are looking to complete the whole process quickly.
The period to complete and submit the application for enterprise zone renewal will end December 31.
