Village to make sewer plant safer

The village of St. Joseph will be getting safety training for their sewer plant.

Grey and Associates will inspect the plant and provide the village with a list of information that they need to upgrade or change in order to make the plant as safe as possible for the plant workers.

The inspection will cost the village $3,500.

“I want to get it taken care of it,” Trustee Bob Rigdon said. “I think it’s cheap.”

Rigdon said all the employees would be safety trained.

“It could safe someone’s life,” Rigdon said.

The village will also be repairing or replacing the air conditioner in the annex building. Trustee Roy McCarty said the unit is not working.

“It got up to 85 in there,” McCarty said. “Repairs have to be made.”

The village is collecting bids for the project.

Trustee Suzanne Rogers said she had spoken to the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission regarding an economic development plan for St. Joseph.

Rogers said she felt it was important for the village to have an economic development plan which would include a structure for giving businesses economic incentives. Rogers asked the board members to review the information from CCRPC and they will discuss it at a future board meeting.

Also at the meeting, the village passed the 2017-18 appropriation ordinance. The ordinance was for more than $2.8 million. The appropriation ordinance is what the village is allowed to spend in certain funds. The ordinance is amended to reflect what the village actually spends in a fiscal year if the village does need to spend more than the appropriated amount in a certain fund.

In other news, the mayor encouraged the board to look at Savoy and Mahomet’s websites.

“They are fairly impressive,” she said.

Fruhling-Voges said the same company has presented the village with a proposal to do its website. It will be discussed further at the first board meeting in August.
