Earlier this year, Madison County embarked on the process of updating its hazard mitigation plan, and now it’s the municipality’s turn to adopt the plan.   The county has dealt with a number of natural disasters over the years, including flooding and severe storms.  Bethalto was among the towns to adopt the plan this week.

Mayor Alan Winslow says it’s all about continuity.

The village board also vacated a portion of Oak Street from Butcher Street to St. Mary’s Drive.  Winslow says it is a small street with no houses.  The Queen of Peace Catholic Church plans on buying the newly-vacated property to make way for a building expansion.
