In episode 9 of the Vicksburg Visit series, Village Council Pro Tem Carl Keller offers his viewpoint on the most significant village goals achieved in recent years. As well, he discusses his view on the next big goal: A new village hall.
In the rearview, Councilman Keller points to infrastructure and streetscape improvements in the village as the project of most significance.

But, looking ahead, borrowing funds to construct the new village hall will not be the approach. Click to listen to Councilman Keller discuss the planning underway to fund that construction.
