Campbell and wife

Two appointments were made and one retirement was announced at the Bethalto Village Board of Trustees meeting last night. Also at the meeting two resolutions were voted on and passed, one of which was urging Illinois state leaders to release non-general fund revenue owed to the village. Several firefighters present were honored as well. Before Acting Fire Chief Alex Campbell was appointed as permanent fire chief he spoke about multiple fires that broke out a few weeks ago.
