From the Mayor’s Desk

The Street & Alley Department Committee, chaired by Alderman Chuck Steele, met last week to discuss road and sidewalk repairs. The consensus of the committee was to have a representative of the City Engineers, Baxter and Woodman, meet with Superintendent Scott Behrends to discuss the extent of repairs to be addressed on North Locust Street from Second to Sixth Street. A detailed discussion on what could go out for bid and/or what could be done “in-house” will be reviewed. If the City Council decides to move forward with any road/sidewalk improvements, the revenue to pay for the improvements and the engineering costs would come from the Motor Fuel Tax Fund which has a balance of approximately $170,000.
Finally, another reminder, the Momence Police Department will be holding Golf Cart/Recreational Off Highway Vehicle registration and inspections at the Momence Police Department, 123 West River St., on Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM and Sunday, April 27, 2014 from NOON until 3:00 PM. Applicants are to bring a completed application, proof of insurance and road-ready vehicle to the Police Department on the above scheduled dates of inspection/registration. Applications and detailed vehicle safety specifications can be obtained at City Hall, the Police Department, or at the City of Momence Website.
Mayor, City of Momence
