The Village of Godfrey is making plans to extend its sewer service to the Humbert Road and Illinois 255 area, and it's a project that will cost six-figures to complete. The village board last year had two options on the table to consider, and chost the less-expensive option that just gets the 30 inch lines under the train tracks from where it will hook on near the Wal Mart store.
Had they chose the plan to take the line all the way to the intersection on Humbert just south of the Lewis & Clark grade school that would have cost an estimated $256,000. The plan that was chosen will cost about $122,000.
That's Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick. He says there are also developers interested in the former Hood's property near village hall, and expects something to happen there within the next year-and-a-half.
