The Montevideo City Council met on Monday night at City Hall. The Council approved a request from the Montevideo Arts Project to proceed with a grant application to the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council to fund a staircase mural in north downtown. Assistant City Manager Angie Steinbach presented a report on the Montevideo Carnegie Library. According to Steinbach, the building is deteriorating and unprofitable, but any attempts to sell or demolish are complicated by it’s being listed on the Historic Register. The council will hold a public hearing on the future of the Carnegie Library at an undetermined future date, likely sometime this Winter.
