Chillicothe City Council members were scheduled to make a site visit to the aquatic center to view construction progress of the new Chilli Bay Water Park at 4 p.m., today (Monday), and then gather for a workshop meeting at 5:30 p.m., tonight, in the conference room at City Hall, to further discuss the project.
2 Point Construction is the contractor for the project, which involves transforming the facility into a water park, featuring a plunge pool, lazy river, enclosed flume water slide, an open raft water slide, diving boards, log roll, water spray features, a water play structure, wave generator, and other related items.
The workshop meeting precedes the regular 6:30 p.m. city council meeting in the conference chambers at City Hall.
A few presentations and legal contracts are among items on the agenda.
There will be a presentation from the National Weather Service designating the city of Chillicothe as "storm ready." There will also be a presentation made by Mayor Chuck Haney to Jim Summerville, for his service on the airport board, and to Ed Martens, who is retiring off the Board of Public Works, after having reached term limits. Haney is also expected to make a recommendation for someone to serve on the Board of Public Works, with the term to begin Jan. 1, 2013.
Also Monday, council members will consider ordinances regarding contracts with Adam Warren for prosecuting services; and with Chapman, Cowherd, and Turner for legal services.
Tonight's agenda also calls for discussion regarding airport hangar rent, an ordinance accepting Assurant as the city's life insurance carrier, and an ordinance regarding a change order for the Chilli Bay Project.
The council will also discuss accepting land from the Missouri Department of Transportation, and consider an ordinance approving a conditional use permit for the storage of construction fill materials at 401 South Washington, in Chillicothe.
An executive session, closed to the public, is expected to follow the regular council meeting, to discuss litigation, real estate, contract negotiations, and personnel.
