The Godfrey Village Board approved a number of items at its meeting last night, including a new three-year contract with the Teamster’s Union.  The contract covers seven employees in the Public Works Department, and runs through March 31, 2018.

Also approved was the amendment of the Nuisance Ordinance, to cover inoperable motor vehicles and include those that are unlicensed or without plates or a current sticker.  Trustee Mike Stumpf thinks this is a good move.

The ordinance will come back for first and second reading in November. 

Trustee Eldon “Twirp” Williams said there have been complaints of people burning leaves at non-approved times, and asked the media to help with a reminder.

In Godfrey, you can burn leaves and yard waste now through the end of the year on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9am and 3pm.  Also approved was an Emergency Services Contract with Sichra Consulting.
