May 20, 2022 Local Stories in and Around St. Joseph, Illinois

Live at Ogden Village Board

I am here so you don’t have to be. The village just voted to purchase lime for the baseball diamonds.

They just approved the Illinois EPA testing that is mandatory.

Discussing the appropriation ordinance which is what the village can spend each year, not what they will spend.

They are going to rekey the building because there are keys outstanding that open the building. Discussing whether it should be a traditional key or a electronic key system.

Discussing golf carts, utility carts, dirt bikes in the village and perhaps having a registration process. Like St. Joseph.

Discussing Water and Sewer rates. Discussing making changes this year that they did not make last year. 25 cents per 1,000 gallons of water purchased. Sewer would be 50 cents.
