Sterling council to apply for coronavirus aid, discuss moratorium on utility shut-offs

STERLING – The Sterling City Council will talk about entry in the Local CURES Program when it meets at 6:30 p.m. today via Zoom.

The meeting will be held at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89397673148.

The Local Coronavirus Urgent Remediation Emergency Program offers help to local governments, using federal funds to make up for money to reimburse local governments for the needed expenditures in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Local governments have to pass an ordinance to apply for the funds, and city councils in Rock Falls and Morrison did that last week.

The council is also expected to discuss utility bills and late fees. At its last meeting on September 7, the council talked about the current moratorium on utility shutoffs and late fees in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, but took no action at that meeting.

The council is also expected to approve the final payment to Civil Constructors for the sanitary force main extension part of the 16th Avenue and Lynn Boulevard project. The final payment is for $59,458.23 and finishes the contract totaling $317,327.13 which replaced a sewage main which had collapsed.

The council will also look at another round of annexation of the Steelton subdivision.
