After hearing from a number of local business owners objecting to a proposed project that would have completely redone the sidewalks that run through downtown Phillips along State Highway 13, the city council unanimously voted to suspend any further action until a future state highway repair project is completed.

The sidewalks in question — which run from Maple Street to Elm Street on the west side, and Elm Street to Depot Road on the east side — were last replaced in 1994, and certain sections have seen considerable erosion over the years.
