The Jefferson City Council met Tuesday night.
The Council heard an update about the former Hy-Vee Drugtown building at 110 North Wilson Avenue. Nikki Uebel purchased the building and will be making various updates to it, with the priority being the north section leased to Midwest Behavioral Health. Megan Ball is a substance abuse counselor and part owner of the business. She said they will provide a new service with substance abuse treatment options.
The Council then awarded the $894,900 contract to Jensen for the Greene County Animal Shelter project, along with a $12,000 epoxy option. The Council also named Building Official Chad Stevens as project manager. Additionally, the Council set November 9th at 5:30pm for a public hearing to potentially sell a property that the City had been gifted at 1006 North Walnut Street.
Finally, Jefferson Parks and Recreation Director Denny Hammen told the Council that the disc golf course at Daubendiek Park is complete and will install signage in the next few weeks. He also said a committee is working with an architect to renovate the showerhouse at the pool to construct one or two family restrooms. He mentioned there was a demand for that for adults with younger children.
