Where the Rails Cross the River

For those following the FLM/gravel pit issue west of town, our attorneys have filed their written brief of the case for the appeals court; and now, FLM’s attorney has until May 24 to file their written “reply brief”. After that, the Judge will schedule oral arguments which will be held at some future date in Ottawa. Our attorney has expressed cautious optimism…. At least things are moving forward!

A new officer has been sworn into the Chillicothe Police Department, Officer Jeremy Cooper. A few Council meetings ago, we agreed to provide a second School Resource Officer (SRO) for the IVC schools, mostly funded by the IVC School District. And so, one of our existing officers has been assigned to the SRO position and Jeremy has been hired to fill in to the regular force. Welcome Jeremy!

With the new fiscal year beginning on May 1, we have reopened the Sidewalk Program and have made some improvements to that program. If you want to build a new or replace your residential sidewalk, the City will reimburse 80% of the cost up to $1,000. For a commercial or institutional property, the City will reimburse 25% of the cost up to $3,000. The program is on a first-come, first serve basis until we run out of the budgeted amount. So sign up soon!

Heads up! The city will be beginning their annual mosquito spraying in June; an important service after all of this flooding. And you’ll see some trim trimming and removal by both the City and Ameren.

The 53rd annual Claud-Elen Days event will be held from June 5th through the 8th! You know the routine – a carnival, beer tent, music, parade, vendors, car show…. More to come. It’s a great family event with fun for all ages!

 That’s all for this time. See you around town!



We want EVERY BUSINESS IN CHILLICOTHE to be successful, they can't..... WITHOUT YOU!
