Village Of Alpha
102 S 2nd St, Alpha, IL
Welcome

Hello!!! 
Fall has come and gone and even though it's not officially winter on the calendar,
my feet and nose tell me it's here. The first measureable snow came on Nov 15th 
and most of it on the roads melted by the 16th. By "measureable" I mean you can step in it
and make a footprint. 

AREN'T YOU GLAD THE ELECTIONS ARE OVER???
NOT SO FAST!!!!
The village Consolidated Election is approaching this April.
How does that effect you now you ask?
WE HAVE TWO TRUSTEE POSITIONS OPENING. Jim Cowser and Barb Damron
have decided that they will not seek re-election.
Now is the time to pass petitions to get placed on the ballot.
Petition packs are available at the village hall.
The filing date is DEC 17th to 22nd. 

The village is moving right along with the grant money we
received last spring. The new back-up Generator for the lift station
on East "A" Street has been installed and is running along. 
It will run every Wednesday at 1 PM as a test start up.

We let a contract to grout the waste water lines on Scandia
and Yates Street south of "C" (Picard) Street. This grouting will
seal all the joints and the lateral joints with grout. That
way we will know that  these lines are not adding in any
rain water run-off. There are many ways that you can help to
alleviate the problem. Work is expected to begin on Nov 17th
and completed by Dec 7th.

The Board also took bids for a new storage building to take the place of
our dilapitated garage to the west of the Village Hall. It's a little hard
to tell everyone to take care of their place when we had one of the
ugliest buildings in town!!  We also are purchasing a new back-up generator
for the water facility so now if we have a power outage, not olnly can
we continue to pump waste water, we will be able to pump clean water to the houses.

with someone when you have a problem in the village.
