Ila’s city council decided this month that the town will not participate in a county picture graphic map.
The council discussed the matter at its regular council meeting this month, and decided that the $295 required to have Ila City Hall on the county map could be better spent elsewhere.
In other business, council woman Peggy Freeman said she has received several complaints about the overgrown grass at Seward and Mary Adams’s estate on Hwy. 98 within the city limits.
Mayor Mike Coile reported told the council that the unkempt yard is in violation of the city’s ordinances. City attorney Pat Graham was instructed to contact the person in charge of the estate.
Councilman Troy Butler reported that he flushed the city’s water lines on May 30 and that the water had “cleared up fast.” He also told the council that a street light at the city’s maintenance shop needs to be replaced.

I think they city of Ila should do something about the house right past the Royal station on the left (HWY 106 towards Athens, across from the "consignment store"). It looks horrible.

How does a city get out of it? Just say you don't want too? Wwll I don't want to pay taxes this year? Can I get out of paying them by saying I don't want too? No they would come lock me up for not paying taxes. Does this mean Ila won't be on the map this year or just city hall won't be on the map? Are they that ashamed of city Hall? And Troy Bulter heres an ideal if the street light is out and needs to be replaced at the city's maintenance shop it is a maintenance shop they should know how to replace it let them do it if they want a light? If they don't then they don't need a street light. They will probably want to hire someone else to come in and put up a light for them?
It is basically a cartoon map!!And, if they had approved the money to participate you would then be grumbling about your tax dollars going for a cartoon like map.It is my understanding the cost is JUST to participate & you have to pay extra to buy the individual maps for resale. It ONLY puts $$ in the pocket of the person selling the map. I have seen them. They are OK but during a bad economony our tax dollars can be used for better things. Thank you Ila for NOT participating.
