Correspondence & Reports

Supervisor, John Dawson:

  • Investment Report:  The Investment Report ending on January 8th, 2020 was previously presented to board.  
  • Supervisor Dawson provided Peoria County directory to township officials

Road Commissioner, Frank Sturm, II:  

  • We are still working out the details for the new loader.  Should have all the paperwork soon. 
  • We did receive our order for rock salt.  It is really good salt.
  • Received another call regarding a sump pump.  This is at Court St. and Broadway in the Lanes.  A resident is discharging his sump pump in his backyard.  Water is running over to Court St. and then east on Court, damaging driveways.  These are becoming a problem, and I’m guessing it has to do with high water table near the river.
  • The county is looking at replacing the Dickinson Road Bridge in 2023.  It has funds from the County/Township Bridge Replacement Program. Dickinson has the worst rating of all of our bridges.  I thought the State Street Bridge should be replaced first. The county said even though the State Street Bridge carries a lot more traffic, if it failed, an alternate route is nearby.  There is no alternate route for Dickinson.
  • We are registered for the new Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse.  Deadline was 01/06/20. 
  • The speed limit in the Lanes (Hendrix Manor) will be lowered to 25 MPH.  Probably go into effect next month. 

Assessor, Mark Brabant:

In 2018, we had 69 permits with 6 single-family home permits.  In 2019, we had 48 permits with 4 of them single-family home permits. 

Plan Commission, Chairperson Manning: 

No cases were before the commission.
