Monticello Mayor Larry Stoner is looking forward to the new look City Council he'll be working with very soon.
Mayor Stoner told Regional Radio News Tuesday Morning on the WHOW Morning Show they will have three new council members and he is optimistic they will bring forward fresh ideas and an attitude to better their community.
As the new council comes aboard, Mayor Stoner hopes they continue the many good things happening in the community. Turning approximately 30 acres of land into recreational facilities could be one of the top priorities with the new council.
The Mayor points to a streetscape project that is continuing in the community that will connect their downtown district to the west side of Highway 105. Stoner is hopeful that can be the start of some great things for their community.
Mayor Stoner indicates activities and recreation choices have changed a lot over the years as there is now sports being played all year and hopes to allow the community space and place to continue to play and develop their skills.
