City holds CIP open house
by Nancy Grindle Correspondent · September 7th, 2017

Members of the Marion City Council and City staff were available to residents at a Capital Improvement Program open house, held Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at City Hall. The open house lasted from 5 to 7 p.m.

Four areas were set up around the lobby related to these general topics: infrastructure, culture and recreation, public safety and general government.

Citizens could rotate from one area to another, look at displays and ask questions of the people manning the sections.

For instance, under "Public Safety," Fire Chief Deb Krebill and Police Chief Joseph McHale shared a location and answered questions about both the police department and the fire department.

Library Director Elsworth Carmen talked with people about the plans for a new Marion Public Library. Besides last Tuesday's open house, he is conducting a number of presentations in the weeks to come. They will be on various days of the week and at various times during the day so that all residents can attend without taking time off from work, and also so residents are aware of the most current information regarding the project.

Citizens could also write out additional ideas for major capital improvement projects and post them for council and staff to consider in the near future.

Capital improvement projects are those which require a large outlay of funding and may take a lengthy amount of time to complete.
