GREENVILLE CITY COUNCIL MEETING

Greenville College is celebrating its 120th year of Christian education September 20.  To help celebrate this event, the Greenville City Council issued a proclamation at their monthly meeting making September 20 “Greenville College 120th Year Celebration Day.”

The council addressed a question about the sewage and water backup near the elementary school on Killarney Street. City Manager Dave Willey discussed several steps he anticipates, including the video graphing of the interior of sewer lines expected to start immediately. He said the investigation will take approximately 90 days and he is hopeful a fix can be accomplished in less than one year.

A professional services agreement with Heneghan and Associates for preliminary engineering and funding assistance services for sanitary sewer improvements for un-served areas was approved in the amount of $25,000.00.

Martha Sussenbach’s request for a special use permit to allow a bed & breakfast at 422 West Harris was approved.

The city approved a purchase for more public parking near downtown.  The parking lot adjacent to First Bank and behind Rex’s Quick Lube was purchased by the city from First Bank for $10,000.00, to be paid over the next five years. Current plans are to maintain it as a public parking lot.

ILLINOIS AUDUBON VISITS LOCAL FARM FOR HUMMINGBIRD BANDING

An Illinois Audubon Society representative recently caught and banded hummingbirds at Phil and Kay Stoecklin’s farm.  Kay Stoecklin shared about their bird population and how the birds are caught. The representative brought two cages made of hardware cloth, with a special trap door triggered by a garage door opener.  The traps are two feet by two feet and approximately three feet tall.  Kay removed all the normal feeders from the area and placed feeders inside the cages.  When the birds flew inside to feed, the door was closed. The birds were banded and released.  Kay said next year they may have a hummingbird festival at their farm.  Approximately 200 hummingbirds fly around their farm and house. For $5.00, hummingbird festival attendees may adopt a bird.  Donors will receive a signed certificate and will be notified if their bird is ever recaptured.  For more information, visit www.IllinoisAudubon.org, or tune in to Public Affairs this Sunday after the noon Bond County Area News.
