The second is Jim Milani, who wants to address the council about the East and West State streets and North 10th Street paving project and the use of general obligation bonds to pay for a large part of the project.

Other items on the agenda for Monday night's meeting includes the presentation by the Centerville mayor of the Jim Senior Memorial Citizen of the Month award for the month of January.

Look at rescheduling the budget workshop meeting to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23 at City Hall. Right now, the budget workshop meeting is scheduled to be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22 at City Hall.
