Schram City Board Members Discuss Assigned Precincts


Following the approval of last month's minutes, members of the Schram City Village Board discussed their assigned precincts and commended village workers for their efforts during their monthly meeting on Monday evening, June 10, at the village hall. In the absence of President Albert Oberle, Trustee Jerry Woods presided.

Trustee Kevin Tuetken said the village workers and summer employees did great work on installing the new street signs and laying some rock throughout the village. 

"It's looking good," said Tuetken.

He also recommended some asphalt work to be done as part of their next project. According to Water Clerk Marcia Eller, the village will be receiving more asphalt this week.

As far as mowing, trustees Pat Rhoades and Earl Eller said residents are catching up from all the rain. Rhoades also asked if a plan to tackle mosquitoes was established with Marcia Eller reporting that Oberle is waiting to hear back from the city of Hillsboro.

Trustees also addressed a few derelict vehicles, and Treasurer Lois Guinn said the village has not received the audit, but expects it for next month's meeting.

Tuetken said that he has noticed many thefts in the Hillsboro area published in the newspaper and trustees encourage residents to be on the lookout.

 "I encourage Schram City to follow Hillsboro and keep some of their possessions inside the garage or locked up," said Tuetken.

With Independence Day just around the corner, the village board reminds residents they may legally set off fireworks that are in compliance with the state of Illinois.

The next monthly meeting will be held Monday evening, July 8, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Schram City Village Hall. The public is encouraged to attend.
