Republic will have Cox Fitness for 3 more years, at least

By unanimous decision at its Nov. 16 meeting, Republic City Council voted to continue its relationship with Cox Fitness at the Republic Community Center. The three-year lease to Cox will earn the city $115,962.67 annually and will end Dec. 31, 2024, at which point another extension may be considered.
Cox Fitness has occupied the space since October 2003 and is highly valued to local residents.
"They are a wonderful asset for our community," said Parks and Rec Director Jared Keeling prior to the vote.
In other business, the council voted unanimously to:
- Approve the final plat of the Birch Pointe Subdivision;
- Approve a preliminary plat for Josan Properties, a commercial subdivision consisting of approximately 5.7 acres at 3030 East U.S. Highway 60;
- Approve a list of qualified engineering and architectural firms for as-needed use in the coming year;
- Approve the purchase of a dry pump from Fluid Equipment for wastewater lift stations.
