Village leaders in Bethalto have identified 49 streets and roads in need of maintenance. Those targeted roads will be patched and or sealed this summer following the adoption of a resolution during last night’s regularly scheduled board meeting. The measure allocates just over $472,000 in Motor Fuel Tax funds to cover the cost of the materials needed to perform the work described by Village leaders as “routine maintenance”.

Bethalto Mayor Alan Winslow says this type of work is something most residents are used to.

Winslow says not every road on the list is guaranteed to be addressed because of the limited funding, but he hopes the Village is able to address at least 90-percent of them before the end of the summer. The projects will begin as once bids for the materials have been received and approved by the Village Board.
