Woodville Village Council will hold its first meeting Jan. 9 in the new expansion at the utility building,  530 Lime St.

The current expansion had always been a part of the overall plan for the utility building, village officials say.

In 2009,  council was debating the costs of going through with the expansion or upgrading the town hall. After seeing all of the costs involved in an upgrade of town hall, the decision was made to go ahead with the expansion of the utility building. Yackee Electric, Inc. was awarded the bid in December of 2010 and construction on the expansion began in the spring of 2011.

The bill would provide vouchers to public school students from families with federal adjusted gross income of $95,000 or less who are interested in attending private or parochial schools.
