PC Library board was present to inform us of the property at 229 S. Main, which the library owns, will no longer be rented out. The library board is taking the property off the tax roll. They intend to take the house down and possibly use the lot for parking so that patrons of the library do not have to park on the street. The board inquired if there would be any TIF funds available to help with demolition and improvements to the lot. The library board was asked to fill out TIF paperwork and bring to the village board so that we can submit it to the TIF lawyer. Tom Jacobs, TIF lawyer, will determine what are eligible expenses for payment. The village will waive the demolition fee.
