In other business last Monday, the council discussed the first of the city's utility rate reductions, extended to Eppel's Antiques which recently opened its doors on Main Street (Second Street) in Ortonville.

The council voted to refer the matter back to the city attorney for further consideration before extending the utility discount to any new or expanding businesses.
