The Catlin American Legion will host its annual car show on Saturday, August 18th from 5pm-8pm. Part of South Sandusky Street will be closed to accommodate the cars. Due to the high volume of cars last year, the Legion members requested the closure of additional space on the street.

The city council approved changes to their public land holdings. The council passed a motion to give the lot at 406 Allison Street to the Vermilion County Land Bank. The council also considered plans to build a new garage for the police vehicles on a recently acquired lot. 

The section of sidewalk on Webster Street between Vermilion and Northview Streets will be replaced.

The city will remove several trees which are impeding the sidewalk project. A sinkhole opened when a storm-drain on Vermilion Street collapsed last week; city workers quickly repaired the damage.
