New municipal council chambers a luxurious step up from previous digs

Tomorrow’s meeting of the logan Municipal Council will be held at the same time — 5:30 p.m. — but in a different place. City Hall has been moved into what was previously known as the Justice Building, and that means the Municipal Council will meet in a new room. The new council chambers are in the room that formerly was the home of Judge Cheryl Russell’s Justice Court, and by all accounts are a luxurious upgrade over the council’s previous digs. The chambers feature movie theater-style chairs for patrons to sit in, and large flat screen televisions are at the front of the room in lieu of a projector to display information to patrons. LCD displays are also in place in front where the councilmembers sit at the front of the room, and on a table off to the side. Teresa Harris, Logan’s public information office, said people attending council meetings will be able to enter through the east or west doors of the building at 290 N. 100 West. “We have signage now that just directs you in,” she said. A lot of people are expected to pack the room for the council’s first meeting in their new chambers, as a public hearing on a controversial proposal for a landlord licensing program will be held at 6 p.m.
