Morrison will sign a contract for a new website

The Town of Morrison will have a new website.

Morrison’s mayor and alderman’s council voted Monday night to accept a contract with Revise, a company based in Troy, Michigan.

Alderman Donald Miller said the Warren County government and the City of McMinnville use Revise for their websites. Speaking with the employees who run these websites for the city and county, Miller said they were very happy with the product.

“For businesses interested in our region, our website is one of the first things they will look at,” Miller said. “We needed an upgrade.” In another action on Monday, Mayor Sue Anderson announced that the city’s former Morrison Library building had been leased again, this time for $600 a month, and the new tenant hopes to have a restaurant open from here the 4th of July festivities in Morrison.

These 4th of July festivities will take place on Saturday, July 2.

“With the actual fourth falling on a Monday, we thought a lot of people might have to go back to work on Tuesday, so having it on Saturday would be better,” Anderson said.

Anderson said all traditional activities surrounding the July 4 celebration will be included again this year and a schedule will be released in the coming weeks. Anderson said she was especially excited to have a good turnout at the baby show.

In the ongoing Morrison Convenience Center saga, Mayor Anderson asked board members what they thought about closing part of Short Street and moving dumpsters a bit away from the lanes railway lines, but still in this area.

This idea generated some questions but no support.

The Warren County Commission continues to search the Morrison area for new landfill sites.

In a separate action, the council granted the combined Family Dollar and Dollar Tree store on Manchester Highway a license to sell beer.
