June 21, 2017 - At the 3 pm meeting at Peoria City Hall Room 404. Chairman Steve Morris
welcomed new City Council member Zach Oyler to the committee. He was appointed to take the city representative position held previously by Councilman Tim Riggenbach.
The Foth Engineering report included their detailed assessment of the remaining capacity of the current landfill Cell 2. This landfill is operated by Waste Management. It is expected to reach capacity sometime between 2020 and 2021 and has about 1.4 million cubic yards remaining.
May landfill leachate removal was 29,000 gallons which shows definite improvement from the 5,000 gallons pulled off last year at the same time.
June 20, 2017 - Mayor Phelan started the meeting at 6:30. All Trustees were present. Trustee reports:
a) Trustees report on specific areas: Only Public Works had a report - On June 27 from 8 am to 3:30 pm, the Forrest Park Hill will be closed.
June 20, 2017 - The manager reported that the “Records Preservation” project is behind desired plan. The mausoleum crypt project is working to mark vacant crypts to make sales easier. Previously planned staff employment reviews and wage adjustments were recently completed. Overdue accounts amount to $6,300 and work is underway to address them appropriately.
The manager is proposing August 4 for dedication of the new entrance. The City of Peoria spent 40 or 50 hours doing drainage investigation; the manager sent a list of related priorities he feels he needs help from City to the public works director.
June 13, 2017 - The Peoria County Board of Election Commissioners met for their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, June 13. For the first time, Chief Judge Paul Gilfillin sat in on the meeting. The Board approved training for both Director Tom Bride and his assistant Elizabeth Gannon. Tom will be attending an Annual Conference where he will gain recertification. Elizabeth will receive four days of training on new software.
The Governor has indicated that he will sign automatic registration into law (he had not yet as of this writing). Tom Bride is looking forward to receiving registrations electronically instead of on paper. This will lead to cheaper processing and fewer errors, omissions, etc.
