BOND COUNTY BOARD APPROVES LIQUOR LICENSES FOR FIVE BUSINESSES

 

The Bond County Board meet Tuesday morning at 10:00 at the courthouse.  The board received and adopted the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan for Bond County.  This plan was put together, without cost to the county, by the Southwestern Illinois Metropolitan and Regional Planning Commission or SWIMPAC.  With the plan going into place it may be possible to apply for federal funding designed to mitigate the natural disaster hazards that face the county, including winter storms, earth quakes, and tornados, among others.  Mitigation projects could include a number of items, such as equipment, buildings, and training.  These federal grants would not be open to Bond County without a mitigation plan. 

 

The board approved the appointments of two new trustees to the Smithboro Fire Protection District Board; Bernard Obermark and Donald Carter.  Obermark and Carter will fill the two newly created board openings.  The board approved liquor licenses for Nuby’s Steakhouse, the Greenville Country Club, Dutch Mill, Cunettos and the VFW Hall.
