The Vandalia City Council approved a TIF agreement during Monday night’s meeting that will help with improvements at a local doctor’s office. During a work session on November 5, the council heard about a TIF application from Dr. Jeremy Clark for plans to make improvements to the building that houses the Pain Relief Center at 100 N. Kennedy. Improvements would include masonry work, installation of new windows, guttering work and more on the front of the building at an expected cost of $28,719.01. On Monday night, the council approved to award TIF funding in the amount of 50% of the project by a vote of 7-1. Alderman Andy Lester cast the lone no vote and stated he was in favor of awarding 25%, but not 50% reimbursement for the project.
Also at the meeting, the council approved the resignation of dispatcher Michelle Hagy. Hagy’s resignation comes after she won the race to become the next Fayette County Treasurer. The board also approved the appointment of Carla Huhn to the Tourism Commission.
