Rochelle City Council meeting

City officials in Rochelle are moving forward in getting their own geographic information system in the future.

The council last night approved a license agreement for 3 years at a cost of $10,000 per year.

City Manager Dave Plyman said that this is just 1 of the phases for this project. City employees will have to be trained along with other computer software in the future.

A special use permit was approved for Murphy Oil who wants to build a 24-hour gas station in front of the Super Walmart store off Coronado Drive. There will have 6 full-time employees and should be open late this year or early 2014.

The council approved a joint agreement with the state for upgrades needed on South Main Street between Steward and Steam Plant Roads. Once completed, it will be a Class II truck route able to handle 80,000 pound vehicles.

The state has committed over 1.1 million dollars for the project.

City officials approved the purchase of a new pick-up truck for the Community Development Department at a cost of $24,500 along with new rates for fiber internet service. The prices have not been adjusted in over 5 years and take effect after July 1st.
