YORKVILLE — Usually, it’s the weather, or maybe a power failure, or even an emergency for board members that would cancel a full City Council meeting.
But tonight’s City Council meeting at City Hall was canceled for a much less pressing reason: no business to transact.
The council had two development-related issues to vote on tonight, but not much of anything else.
One issue was the amendment to the Prestwick Subdivision annexation agreement that would allow building a new Christian high school at Ashley Road and Route 126. The other was an agreement in the Grand Reserve subdivision related to the special service area there.
In both cases, developers called City Hall and asked that the council table the items to a later meeting. Yorkville officials sent an email out saying, “Due to requests by developers to table their agenda items and there being no other pressing agenda items, tonight’s City Council meeting has been canceled.”
The next scheduled full council meeting is Oct. 8.
