BOND COUNTY BOARD MEETING

 

The Bond County Board met Tuesday morning at the Bond County Courthouse.  The bridge on 16th avenue, over a willow creek tributary, in Tamalco Township, is in need of replacement.  It’s been decided that culverts would work well, and save money for the county.  The Board approved $10,000 in county aid for the project.  In the Bond County clerk’s report $12,737.65 was transferred to the treasurer’s office.

 

The Board discussed a request from Kevin Devore to move earth on his property to create a pond; the earth would be moved adjacent to Seagraves cemetery.  The board tabled the issue to collect more information. 

 

Tom Hoffman was unanimously approved to the ETS board.  And in Old business it was reported that 502 delinquent real estate taxes notices are being mailed through certified mail.  The delinquent taxes total over $500,000.  This amount is lower than the amount at the same time last year, and more tax payers are preferring to use their credit cards to pay their real estate taxes.  The amount paid by credit cards has more than doubled in the last two years.

 

The Bond County Board meeting can be seen on New Wave Channel 3 at 6PM Wednesday night. 


GREENVILLE FIREMEN CALLED TO DORM ON OAK STREET

 

Greenville firemen responded to an alarm Tuesday morning at 9:42 am at a Greenville College Dorm on Oak Street.  The cause of the alarm was determined to be a malfunction in the fire alarm system.  There was no fire.  Firemen were on the scene for about half an hour.

SMITHBORO VILLAGE MEETING

 

Several village residents attended the Smithboro Village Board Meeting Monday night.  Attorney Brock Willeford spoke on behalf of several attending, regarding a minimum water bill sent to residents who have meters but are not using water.  Although he thought the billing was legal, he questioned its fairness.  Board member Lora Kennedy requested time for the board to research the problem.  They anticipate an answer by the next meeting.

 

Jerry Coleman received zoning committee approval to place a manufactured home in the village. 

 

At next month's meeting, options will be investigated for getting high speed internet access for the board.


PRELIMINARY REPORT FROM 2007 RELAY FOR LIFE

 

Although the final totals are not available for the fund raising efforts from the 2007 Relay for Life, estimates indicate the effort and devotion of countless persons.  In the nine years of the relay, over $700,000 has been collected.  This year's total should be in the neighborhood of $56,000, according to Event Co-chair, Nancy Royer-Green.  Nancy said that 2007 records are currently being audited and when they are complete, she will share that information. 

 

Plans are already being made for the 2008 Relay for Life and at least four teams have had fund raising activities for next year's event.   The relay committee plans a concession stand at Apple Day, this Saturday, on the Greenville square and Nancy said they would be represented at as many community events as possible.

 

Special recognition goes to the Jr. High and Elementary School students who accepted the "quarter challenge" this year. The goal of the quarter challenge is to ring the walking track at the fair grounds with quarters, laid edge to edge. They did a great job of collecting quarters to lay around the track.  All Bond County schools will be contacted next year concerning the "quarter challenge" for 2008.

 

Nancy and Peter Royer-Green will serve as Co-Chairs for the 2008 Relay for Life.  Some members of the committee for 2008 have been secured but volunteers are always welcome.  Call 664-9598, if you would like to help with the 2008 Relay for Life Activities.
