Chillicothe City Council members are expected to set salaries for elected officials when they meet for their regular meeting tonight (Monday) in the council chambers at City Hall.
The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., and is open to the public.
Salaries for elected officials were discussed during the council's previous meeting, and a four percent increase is being proposed for the positions of city clerk, auditor, and mayor — the same increase that was given to city employees in 2012. The candidate filing period opens Dec. 11.
Also on Monday's agenda is an ordinance accepting a health insurance bid, and an ordinance adopting the 2011 National Electric Code.
City Administrator Ike Holland will also discuss the Mitchell Road access from U.S. Highway 36. He stated that the Missouri Department of Transportation is asking whether the city is willing to make a financial commitment to improve safety at the area where Mitchell Road intersects with Highway 36. Holland said that no funds have been set aside for such work at this location in the current budget.
It is also expected that the city council will set a date for a site visit to the developing Chilli Bay water park.
