Much of Tuesday's Hannibal City Council agenda involved airport improvements.

City officials plan to extend the taxiways at Hannibal Municipal Airport in order to facilitate future development of T-Hangers. The project’s cost is slightly over $653,000, with the city picking up 10% of that cost, or just over $65,000.  MoDOT Aviation grants will fund the remaining 90 percent.

Public Works Superintendent Brian Chaplin sought and received approval of a Resolution awarding the airport contract to sole-bidder Bross Construction. A Bill authorizing the city to utilize the $588,000 in MoDOT Aviation Grant Funds had its First Reading, with a 2nd and Final Reading to be heard at a Special-Call council meeting July 28th at 5:30 p.m.

In other business, the council approved:

A payment of a portion of $18357 budgeted in FY-2016  to support the Hannibal Nutrition Center. The appropriation described as a Service Agreement supports senior meals and services.

A bid award totaling approximately $100,000 for media ad buys for FY 2016 for the Hannibal Convention and Visitors Bureau. The bid is awarded to state approved vendor H & L Partners. The outside ad agency was recommended for their expertise and capability to achieve maximum return on the city's advertising investment.
