MetroCentre gets mall contract
The city council passed a resolution at its Jan. 16 meeting to allow MetroCentre to maintain the mall in the River District.
The MetroCentre acquired a yearly $16,200 contract, agreeing to pick up the trash and litter, as well as remove garbage from the mall and adjacent walkway. The MetroCentre also agreed to remove fall leaves and purchase, install and maintain plantings.
There are sufficient unobligated and unbudgeted SSA #6, or Rockford Central Area Commission, funds to cover the cost.
