Springdale Cemetery Observer Report
8/21/2018: Only one representative was not in attendance.
Adam White requested permission to hold 2 segments of the Whiskey Daddle Charity Race in Springdale on Oct 6-7 (Peoria Marathon.) Since the City of Peoria requires events to pay for services needed for their events, such as security or blocking streets, the race looked for different routes. The is the same weekend as the Prairie Historic Tours, but the race will finish and be cleaned up by 12:30, there wasn't a conflict and permission was granted. This is considered a good collaboration.
Manager Matusak described the City's pilot program test project to grind the cemetery road with asphalt shingles and other stuff and then seal the mixture. The city has also done some much needed grading, patching, and added riprap to some unstable road shoulders.
The Prairie Gardens Scattering site will be out for bids August 28. There was again discussion about the name being "Prairie..." instead of "Woodland..." since it is a woodland area and there may be confusion with the Natural Prairie area.
The pet cemetery road is repaved and shoulder was built up and seeded with grass.
DAR requested Oct 11 to be their service day project to do plantings.
League of Women Voters of Greater Peoria gave Springdale $100 donation in appreciation of holding their Summer Social there.
