GREENVILLE LEAF DISPOSAL PROGRAM UNDERWAY

 

The Greenville leaf vacuuming program began this week and runs through Friday, December 17.  Please rake your leaves to the edge of the curb or edge of your yard in piles no higher than three feet which contain no sticks, brush, or other yard debris.  Leaves may also be bagged and set out for collection on your garbage pickup day.  Bagged or boxed leaves may be set out Tuesdays by 6:00 a.m. and the city with pick them up as schedules permit.  Leaf burning season begins November 1 but with the city vacuuming and collecting programs, the need to burn leaves should be minimized.


BOND COUNTY BOARD OF HEALTH MEETS MONDAY NIGHT

 

The Bond County Board of Health met Monday night.  The seasonal flu update showed one confirmed case of influenza Type A has been reported at Greenville Regional Hospital.  Flu shots are available and more than 500 have been given so far this season.  Director Maxine Barth said the number of people getting flu shots this year is down from last year, and there are plenty of shots available.  The absence of national media reports predicting a dire flu season and the waning fears of the H1N1 virus are likely the reasons for fewer people nation-wide seeking flu shots. 

 

The board approved the 2011 fiscal year budget to take effect December 1.  Board Chairman Daryl Bolen said the department is “healthy financially" despite the State of Illinois being past due on many payments to the health department.  The board also approved a $200,000 payment on the debt owed on the new building.  The board will likely approve next year’s health board officers at the next meeting November 8.
