DONNEWALD DISTRIBUTING GROUND BREAKING

 

Several months ago Donnewald Distributing signed an agreement with the City of Greenville to build a new distribution center in Greenville. Tuesday that new facility held a ground breaking ceremony in the Wolf Industrial Park. WGEL talked to Company President Mike Donnewald. Mike said he he expects that they will start next week with top soil work and grading and if weather permitting, the construction should move along quickly with a completion date of next April or May. Mike said they will make the building as green as possible because they want to be responsible to the environment. He ended by saying “It is great to be in Greenville”.

JULY KINGSBURY PARK DISTRICT MEETING

 

July’s Kingsbury Park meeting was held this past Monday night, Jerry Sauerwein, the Park District Director, reported that the pool has been back up and running as of July 3rd after the replacement of a broken part. Jerry also reported that the skate park is also off and running as of July 4th. The KPD board also discussed bikers using the new skate board park.  One of the concerns was the safety of the bikers and the skateboarders.  The current policy allows bikers to use the skateboard park but only with plastic pegs and plastic pedals to save the concrete from excessive wear.  After a lengthy discussion it was decided to leave everything the way it is for now.

BOND COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT MEETING

 

The Bond County Health Department met Monday night for the last time in the current Health Department Building.  The August meeting will be the first one in the new building.  Jon Carpenter with Korte Company gave a building construction update which showed that the substantial completion date could be as earlier as July 30th.  The date in the contract isn’t until August 21st which means construction progress is ahead of schedule.  On the cost side of the new building, the report showed that just over 2.8 Million dollars of the budgeted 3.88 Million dollars has been spent on the building so far.  The health department also reviewed the audit from 2008.  The auditor gave the health department a clean opinion, and said the department has a good fiscal system in place.

 

Discussion also turned to the West Nile Virus, Health Department Director Maxine Barth said that so far no cases of West Nile have been found in Bond County.  Mosquito testing continues as does the collection of birds for testing.  An H1N1 update was also discussed.  It was said that the latest information included a possible vaccine for H1N1 could be available by the fall, and that the standard flu vaccines may need to be given earlier than normal to allow for time between the standard vaccine and the H1N1 vaccine.
