The city of Marseilles acquired a piece of property at their meeting on Wednesday.

Marseilles Mayor Jim Hollenbeck said the property at 419 East Bluff Street has been sitting empty for several years and the owner offered it to the city in lieu of the city exercising foreclosure of existing liens.

Hollenbeck said the council also approved the water and sewer extension project on the I&M canal to Pohar and Sons of LaSalle in the amount of $139,000.

The council also approved three home business license renewals.
