Edwardsville to call the public services, public safety committee meetings tomorrow.


Edwardsville’s public safety and utility committees will meet Tuesday afternoon at City Hall.

At 4:30 p.m., meeting of the public services commission. There will be a joint funding agreement for the state-leased construction work for the North Buchanan Street Resurfacing Project and approval will be sought to award the 2022 sewer lining contract.

Alderman Chris Farrar has two talking points to add: one for the city’s landscaping plans along Lindley Avenue and what is the city’s responsibility to residents when trees and shrubs are removed during street reconstructions.

An hour later at Public Safety, Edwardsville Police will provide an update on the department’s hiring, as they continue to fill roster gaps with new officers to replace those retiring or leave their post.

The fire department will seek approval for a sole-source resolution to purchase an additional 10 Motorola portable radios, part of a larger rotating project carried out each year.

As part of new business, Alderman Chris Farrar wants to discuss adding a stop sign to Ironworks development.

The next Public Safety meeting will be October 11 at 5:30 p.m., while the next Public Services meeting will be at 4:30 p.m. on the same date, both at City Hall, located at 118 Hillsboro Ave.
