Meeting on loan issue canceled

LEOMINSTER -- Officials canceled Wednesday night's special City Council meeting regarding the allocation of $1.3 million for unexpected library building expenses.

The meeting will occur tonight in the City Council Chambers at City Hall. A public forum is scheduled for 6:55 p.m., and the meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

The council had originally planned to meet Wednesday night and vote on whether the city will take out a loan to cover the $1.3 million.

But to vote on the loan order, councilors must first vote to allocate the money, according to City Council President Robert Salvatelli.

The council chose to delay making a decision about the allocation during their meeting Monday night.

Salvatelli then canceled Wednesday night's meeting, and rescheduled a meeting with two agenda items for tonight. One item is for the council to vote on the allocation, and the other is for the loan order.

The council had to wait until tonight to have the meeting because meetings must be scheduled 48 hours in advance for legal reasons, according to Salvatelli.

"We're going to meet Thursday night and hopefully get this thing resolved one way or the other," Salvatelli said Wednesday
