Canton moves forward with spring projects


Fri, Apr 18th, 2014
Posted in Canton Government

The Canton City Council took a walk down the street to the old liquor store building at the beginning of the April 9 meeting to take a look at the current state of the building and discuss plans for rebuilding now that the weather is improving.

The ceiling has been stripped down to the rafters exposing the old stamped tin ceiling above. The City plans to save and reuse much of the ceiling as the building is transformed into the new government center. The interior walls have been removed leaving an open floor space for the City to design their new quarters.

A sketch of the proposed floor plan was shared and shows office space and a restroom for the city clerk in the rear part of the building and chambers for the city council in the front. The entrance will also be moved from the front to the side of the building to allow for a handicap accessible entrance. The City will be discussing the project with contractors to start making arrangements for the work to be done.

The council also approved plans for updates to the Welcome to Canton sign. A preliminary diagram and an estimate by The Treehouse for updated landscaping around the sign were provided and discussed. The updates include new brick and the addition of a lower tier around the flag pole, as well as updated plants and flowers. It was agreed that having some inset pots which could easily be removed and changed would aid in maintenance and help to add some seasonal color.

The light for the Welcome to Canton sign will need to be replaced this summer and the sign itself will be pressure washed and painted. The City will remove the old landscaping materials and work on the updated landscaping will begin as soon as the area is cleared.

Nick Prestby, owner of the Canton Pub, was present and discussed the economic development of Canton with the city council. Prestby discussed several ideas, stating he would like to see something prosper in Canton. He brought up the fact that several local towns now have a Dollar General or are discussing the idea of bringing one to their towns and asked about the possibility of Canton doing the same. Mayor Donivee Johnson pointed out that Canton does not have an EDA (Economic Development Authority), as it was previously determined to be cost prohibitive for Canton, and that this type of land purchase and development must go through the EDA. The City of Canton works with the Fillmore County EDA and it was agreed .....
