A special meeting of the Tira City Council was called for Monday, January 28th , for the purpose of discussing the needed repairs on the Community Center, due to the water damage, which happened in December. The group considered the estimates and made their selection. The repairs were scheduled to begin on Wednesday, January 30th . Another topic on the agenda was the property insurance. We recently learned that the carrier that we’ve had for several years is not renewing commercial policies.
