Leslie Harris sworn in as Beardstown mayor
The Beardstown City Council met on May 2 at 6 p.m.
The initial meeting was Steve Patterson’s last Council meeting as mayor. An ordinance approving a 10-year franchise agreement between the City of Beardstown and Cass Cable TV, Inc. was unanimously approved, as were several TIF building renovation grants.
The Council approved a donation of $250 to the Cass County Food Pantry. In addition, the foreclosure of the City’s demolition lien on the property at 614 Monroe Street was approved.
Mayor Patterson thanked everyone present for the opportunity to serve the city as mayor. “It’s been an exciting four years,” Patterson said. “Leslie has good ideas.”
