Industry trustees hear estimates on road repair, pass video gaming ordinance – News – The McDonough County Voice
INDUSTRY – Preliminary motions for improvements at the intersection of Sullivan Street and US Highway 67 were put into play by County Engineer Scott Hance.
At a regular meeting of the Industry Village Board of Trustees, Hance said he had been in consultation with a representative from Hutchinson Engineering who gave a price on what the road repair might cost and what the engineering fees would be. He said the price estimates are “on the high end.”
The total cost to repair the Sullivan Street/US67 intersection is estimated at $62,135, engineering/
survey costs at $15,000 and construction at $47,135.
These costs are estimates only, and are likely to change at a later date when more time has lapsed permitting a detailed examination of the proposed site of construction.
Hutchison Engineering has not yet assigned a surveyor to the proposed work site, but the village board did vote in favor of granting authority to Hance to act as a liaison between the village and the engineering consultation firm. Hance said he would schedule a time convenient to both the board of trustees and Hutchison to meet and further develop construction plans.
Village Employee Terry Seaver described the intersection to the Voice: “It is the approach off the highway. There are a couple of humps there that we’re trying to level off so it is not so rough going up through there. And getting the grates all right for the bank and everything.”
With a unanimous vote, the village board amended Chapter 3 of its municipal code to add Section 3-11 of the Illinois Video Gaming Act, 230 ILCS 40/1 et seq. Village Board President Danny Erwin told the Voice that five percent of annual video gambling revenue within city limits will be collected through taxes.
May 10 has been designated as spring clean-up day.
Industry Village Board of Trustees will meet again on April 4 at 6:30 p.m. in the Kiwanis Building located at 103 N. Downen St.
