Steelville Community Building Renovation Project Still Being Worked On

(Steelville) The city of Steelville recently had a bid opening for a contract to renovate the community building. Steelville Mayor Terry Beckham says the bidding did not go as planned.

Last year, the city was awarded a grant by the Missouri Department of Economic Development’s Community Development Block Program to help renovate the community building. The grant totals just over $495,000 and the city will kick in between $80,000-$100,000 of its own money.

In other news from the meeting, Mayor Beckham says the city tried to purchase some land in town.

The next Steelville city meeting is scheduled to take place Monday, July 18th.
