The Wheeling City Council held its regular meeting earlier Tuesday night.
While the council did honor some members of the community, the focus was on residents who spoke up about different issues facing the city.
Most of the people in attendance lived in the Edgwood neighborhood and don’t want a bank to be constructed at the site of the former Edgwood Lutheran Church.
Many of them spoke out against the proposal, which was one of the most prominent topics of concern at the meeting.
Along with the bank, Wheeling residents wanted to know the status of suspended city manager Robert Herron.
“If I was in a company vehicle leaving a company event, almost four times over the legal limit and I hit another person,” said Will Wallace, a Wheeling resident. “I really wish more effort would be put into it in a timely manner.
After public comments were made, the city council held an executive session to discuss zoning. However, no action was taken in that session.
We will continue to update you on the proposed bank in Edgwood and the city manager situation.
