WORTHINGTON — In light of the week's rain, construction crews will not be able to finish McMillan Street road work in time for Saturday's King Turkey Day parade. At the Monday city council meeting, city council members approved an alternate route to accommodate the ongoing construction.

The new route will begin at the corner of Clary Street and First Avenue, moving southwest along First. The parade will turn northwest on 10th Street and then west on Diagonal Road, to end at the intersection of Diagonal Road and Roos Avenue.

Also approved by the council Monday:

  • An assessment on unpaid costs associated with the Hotel Thompson, in the amount of $183,035.70, to Curtis and Teresa Williams, Wells Fargo Bank and Lighthouse Management Group.
  • A third and final reading of the ordinance that enacts Worthington's local option sales tax.
  • A resolution to pre-certify an increase of 17.5% on the 2019 annual tax levy, to be finalized by Dec. 9.
  • First readings of zone changes of property owned by Yellow Company LLC near the site of the upcoming entertainment spec building.
