The sewer project bids were opened approximately a month ago and those bids came in over budget, and the monthly costs to the residents were not feasible. So instead of scraping the entire project, the board voted to do a redesign of the system to try to bring the costs down so that we can have a quality system, that meets USDA & EPA guidelines, and will keep things affordable for the residents.
We apologize for any inconvenience to residents regarding the City Wide Clean Up on Saturday. There was some confusion between the Village and Area Disposal on the pick up time. We've gotten things worked out and they will be coming into town tomorrow morning around 6 am to finish picking things up. Please have your stuff at the curb this evening so you won't miss the pick up. We appreciate your understand and apologize again for the mix up.
On June the 7th the Village of Greenview held a small ceremony for Trustee Roy Lee who retired from the Village Board effective May 18th, 2021. Not only did he serve as a Village Trustee from 2007-2021, Roy served on the park and entertainment commitee and the sidewalk and tree committe. He chaired the employee committee and recently was appointed as chair of the sewer committee. Trustee Lee had many accomplishment during his 14-year tenure as Trustee with some of the most prominent ones being to help build a good relationship between the employees, the board, and the residents of Greenview. He made sure that the employees were professionally trained and received their qualifications to run the water department, was part of the committee to hire a zoning and nuisance officer and he campaigned for having a full-time Village Clerk. He was part of getting the water billing system computerized and helped mainstream Village procedures. The Greenview Citizen of the Year was implemented by Trustee Lee and he was instrumental in helping to get things started for the possibility of a wastewater facility in Greenview.
We have had several people asking about a City-Wide Cleanup. Unfortunately, we were unable to coincide it with the City-Wide Garage Sales this year, so our cleanup day will be Saturday June 12, 2021. Please remember no electronics, paint, chemicals, tires or yard waste are allowed. They will leave anything that is not allowed curbside for the homeowner to dispose of. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Village Hall during business hours at 217-968-5314.
We are looking for a person or people to change out books in the Free Little Library at Village Hall. We have several boxes of books but no one to man it. If you would like to volunteer please contact Village Hall. Thank you!
