The Clinton City Council, Monday night at the regular City Council meeting, set in motion the next phase of a new gas station to come to Clinton.
A TIF District was expanded to encompass the planned site at Van Buren, Grant, White and Jackson Streets and City Administrator Tim Followell says the ball is now in the court of the developer, Meyer Oil.
Many have questioned the need for an additional gas station in Clinton and also the location of the proposed establishment. Followell has no concerns about the location or the addition of another gas station in the community.
Meyer oil also has a Mach 1 gas station facility in Champaign, however, Followell says it is unlikely the Clinton station will look like that as the Champaign site is a truck stop, and the area of town they are building cannot support a truck stop style facility.
