They can't take a vote or any official action at a work session ... but the consensus appeared favorable for letting the City Manager discuss with potential renters (who have apparently already been making queries to the city) for "short-term" use of the now city-owned property east of the Veterans Building. Several member of the Collinsville Tri-County Fair Board were in attendance at the work session. City Manager Pam Polk said "there is no plan and no money" in regards to the "long-term" use of the property although many assumed it was for parking for both the Veterans Building and the fair. Also discussed was perhaps moving the Depot Museum from it's current (1975) location on 10th Street back to Main Street where it would be more visible to the public. Options of renting the buildings closest to Main St. but using the southern part of the lot for parking were also discussed. Any rental agreement would eventually come before the commission for final approval. "Short-term" was considered in the 3-5 year range in the discussion. Potentially 'budgeting" rental income back to future development (i.e. gravel first for parking) of the lot was also discussed.
