The consent agenda also included approving a request to provide office space at no cost in the Niles District Library for the non-profit organization, Family Literacy Network.
The council members went on to approve five temporary easement agreements with the building owners of 115, 209, 211, 215 and 217 East Main Street.
They also approved of entering into an intercreditor agreement between the City of Niles, Infonit, LLC of Niles and Working Capital Company, Inc. of California.
