Antigo aldermen will consider a lease agreement with EDF Renewables for the construction of a solar farm when they gather tonight.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

A 54-acre solar development project would be located north of the Remington Detention Pond, along both sides of Hogan Street on city-owned vacant industrially zoned parcels.

The agreement was on the City Council’s September agenda, but was pulled due to a pair of unresolved issues.

The only other item in new business is a proposal to spend $13,000 for the July 4 fireworks show in 2022.

The city would utilize $9,500 from the economic development portion of hotel and motel tax funds and $3,500 from the general operating celebrations fund for a contract with Fireworks Country.

Several items are on the consent agenda. They include:

— Approving payment of $2,500 for Ruekert and Mielke for additional work on the Clermont Street sanitary sewer project for construction, staking and review submittals.

— Increase election inspectors wages to a daily limit of $160-$190 (depending on position) and $12.50 per hour for training, effective Jan. 1, 2022.

— Increase per hour wages effective Jan. 1, 2022, for regular part-time employees to $15 and for seasonal employees to $12.50 ($13 for nights and weekends).

— Approve 2% cost of living wage increase in 2022 for exempt and non-represented employees.

— Approve agreement with Ayres Associates for $251,765 for the design, construction administration and inspection associated with a grant project to extend Deleglise Street through the Saratoga Industrial Park.
