The Mayor asked for comments from the public.

Ben Shepherd, of Evans Contracting in Marseilles, asked about the status of his solicitors permit. His permit went before the council on May 15 and died for lack of a motion to approve. Mr. Shepherd said he has been in business for 17 years, restoring property after catastrophes. He said he works with the homeowner to make sure insurance “does the right thing.” Shepherd said he “would like to be able to make a living” by working in Oglesby. City Clerk Clinard said that Evans Contracting was licensed to work in Oglesby, just not solicit. Chief Knoblauch, noting that the company check contained the names of two persons, one of whom had openly admitted to a felony (robbery) on the solicitors application (which was pulled from consideration by Shepherd), was a key factor in his decision to recommend that the city not approved the solicitors permit. Several council members mentioned that satisfied customers would be Shepherd’s best form of solicitation. Commissioner Carey told Shepherd that he did not vote for the license as a gesture of showing “preferential treatment” to the contractors who have businesses in Oglesby. Commissioner Porter also told Shepherd that he’s never had a resident say that they wanted contractors soliciting in town.

Commissioner & Mayor reports:

Commissioner Rivara said the appropriations ordinance would be ready for the next council meeting. He said “if everything goes right,” the ordinance will be passed at the July 17th meeting. He also asked that the city send a letter of thanks to the City of Peru’s electrical department for the “heck of a job” they did the night of the June 14th storm.

Commissioner Carey echoed Rivara’s sentiments about sending a letter to Peru and updated the council on the work to clean up after the storm. He praised city workers for their efforts, and thanked both Peru and LaSalle for their help. “We surely do appreciate the towns coming together” to help Oglesby in an emergency.

A MOTION WAS MADE BY RIVARA, SECONDED BY CAREY to adjourn. (7:15 p.m.) AYES: CAREY, PORTER, RIVARA, FINLEY. MEETING ADJOURNED.

A MOTION WAS MADE BY PORTER, to approve the reimbursement of unused holiday pay to the Ambulance Director. The motion died due to a lack of a second.

The Mayor asked for comments from the public.

Tony Dennett asked about the medical marijuana plant. Mayor Finley said it was his understanding that the plant is growing 1 or 2 plants. Commissioner Yborra, said that one of the problems was that the group that won the right to build the Oglesby plant, was successful in bidding on two other locations. The Rock Island plant was built first, so is growing the bulk of the product needed. Oglesby’s plant will begin growing when the market picks up.

Jason Curran asked about an earlier discussion the city had concerning a solar plant. He said he felt the city should pursue the opportunity, especially since it was at no cost to the city.

Commissioner & Mayor reports:

Commissioner Rivara talked about his concerns for the availability and rising cost of energy in Illinois. He echoed resident Curran’s thoughts that the city should pursue the solar plant because the city has “an ideal piece of property,” on which to locate the plant.

Mayor Finley updated residents on the pool repairs. The hope is to have the pool opened Memorial Day, weather permitting.

A MOTION WAS MADE BY PORTER, SECONDED BY CAREY to enter into executive session at 7:22 to discuss “collective negotiating matters between the public body and its employees” and to discuss “ the possible acquisition or sale” of property. AYES: CAREY, PORTER, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.

A MOTION WAS MADE BY PORTER, SECONDED BY CAREY TO resume the regular city council meeting at 7:48 p.m. AYES: CAREY, PORTER, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.

A MOTION WAS MADE BY RIVARA, SECONDED BY CAREY to adjourn. (7:49 p.m.) AYES: CAREY, PORTER, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MEETING ADJOURNED.
