The Colo City Council opened their latest meeting hearing about some upcoming events from Librarian Joanie Jamison. At this month’s Coffee and Conversation, area residents can come to the library to have questions answered regarding what might take place if someone is found to be a bone marrow match, as far as insurance and how any procedures might work. This issue came about from Shane and Emily Robbinett of Maxwell, who are looking for a match for their one-year-old son, Weston.
Upcoming Coffee and Conversations will feature fifth- and sixth-grade students from Colo-NESCO, including the choir and students participating in community theater.
Jamison also mentioned that she is helping organize this year’s Christmas in Colo event, which will be held Dec. 15. Contact Jamison at the Colo Library if you are interested in helping with the event as well.
In projects that have been discussed with no official action, the council continues to research potential housing developments, as well as drainage issues throughout the city.
In other news, a liquor license was approved for the Colo Bar on Main Street. Work also continues on the city’s sign on U.S. Highway 30.
