Morris City Council recap: City approves three new businesses; Mayor talks ‘The Rough Road 100′

MORRIS– The Morris City Council approved licensing for three new businesses and renewed another Monday night.

Javier Ramirez will continue to operate La Hacienda Del Patron Mexican Kitchen, a restaurant at 1840 N. Division St.

Erik Enervold will operate Simian Bros. Creative, a graphic design, screen printing, and embroidery business at 534 Bedford Road. Matthew Morrison will operate Morrison Surveying Co., a land surveying business at 604 Bedford Road. Noodles & Company will operate a restaurant at 281 E. Route 6.

Mayor Chris Brown said the Rough Road 100 midwest spring classic bicycle race will take place on Saturday April 12, rolling out of Canal Port Plaza at 8 a.m.

“This has been been on hiatus the last couple years with COVID, so we are happy to welcome them back”, Brown said.

The Water and Sewer Committee offered the recommendation the council approve the execution of engineering agreement with Chamlin and Associates for the water tower construction project.

“We are hoping to go to bid within the next month, approximately,” Brown said.

“We are looking to possibly put it out on Brisbin Road between the two Costco Buildings,” he said. “We are getting prepared for a new water treatment facility, that will hopefully start construction within the next two years. Currently, with the way our water works we are unable to clean the water towers inside, so we cannot drain a full tower. This will get us prepared to clean some of these water towers before we get our treatment up and running.”

The motion passed 8-0.
