Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

PEORIA (HOI) - Peoria's City Council met Tuesday night without two council members. 1st District Council member Denise Moore and At-Large Council member John Kelly were both absent. The meeting lasted a total of 23 minutes around the horseshoe.

In their absentia, the council passed 9-0 a special use permit for a new sober living facility. The special use permit lasts 60 days, so the home must get up and running in that time or apply for another permit. That property is located at 2419 N. Prospect Road.

The council also deferred any action on adopting an ordinance that would establish a Peoria Combined Sewer Overflow Remediation District. City Manager Patrick Urich said after the meeting Tuesday that the deferred communications would have no fiscal impact on taxpayers. That full proposal can be viewed here.

That legislation will be revisited on May 11, as deferred by Council member Zach Oyler and seconded by Tim Riggenbach.

The next time it will be addressed will be after the April 6 election. Meaning Peoria will have a new Mayor and potentially several new members of the City Council.
