Agenda item #5 - Susan Piazza - 6412 Deer Run Drive, Alton, IL 62002, Republic Services, Manager, Business Development Municipal Services. Informed the Board about a new incentive program that she would be putting in place for the months of May - July to increase the recycling tonnage in the Village. The company will put the incentive money towards the development of the new Fred Winters Park. Susan will be updating the Mayor each month with reports on how they are progressing.

6:51:40 PM


Asked Susan if Republic is contacting any of the Commercial Businesses in the area to participate. She explained this program is only for residential, but she will ask her colleague who manages the commercial businesses. Also asked Piazza about changing the route to recycling being picked up every week instead of every other week. Piazza said she would mention it to her boss, but that could change the monthly rate since that is one of the billing factors.

6:53:13 PM


Asked Piazza about the recycling containers. Can we make available additional containers to people who want them or could the Village get a large container in a central site for residents.

6:57:01 PM

Agenda item #16 - Mayor Comments - Mayor updated the Board on the grass cutting contract. We are behind due to a mix up with the notices, but the bids will come in next week. Asked the Board if we could look at them and add to next weeks meeting. The Board was fine with that decision. We are also working to hire some summer help. Mayor and Kostyshock would like to bring back three employees from last year. They are recommending Drew Collins, Andy Wentzel and Ryan Covarrubias. We will only hire five people at 32 hours per week (not six people like last year). If we need to extend them we can but we will limit them to 320 hours. This will be a great help to our Public Works Department. They are currently short handed. Mayor asked the Boards view. Board agreed this is something that has to be done, so let's move forward. It will be in the packets next week. Reminder that the Congressional Prayer breakfast is Monday morning. The Village has eight seats, we have five confirmed. Let Mayor know if you are interested in attending.
