Jacksonville Council to discuss Senior Center 

The Jacksonville Mayor and City Council is set to discuss the future of the city’s senior center when they meet Monday evening t the Jacksonville city hall.  The city has been pondering where to locate the center which was relocated to the Jacksonville Community Center after the 50 year old building they occupied on Ladiga street began crumbling around them.  Councilman Charles Notar, Chairman of the council’s finance committee, asked his fellow council members to consider options for a new center and present their options at Monday nights city council meeting.  One option that the city is already considering is remodeling the city owned two story building at the vacant Union Yarn Mill which the city purchased for $350,000 in 2003.  Several council members support moving the library, senior center and city hall to the building.  The council must first, however, decide how to fund the renovation of the building.  The Jacksonville council meets at 6 Monday evening for their planning session and the official meeting begins at 7 Monday evening at the Jacksonville city hall.
