The Godfrey Village Board is considering adopting an occupancy permit ordinance. The village is the only community in the Riverbend without some sort of occupancy permit procedure on the books, according to Trustee Eldon "Twirp" Williams. He says the issue is heading to committee.
In other village business, an ordinance was adopted that amends the 2009 ICC Code Books, leaving out the requirement for sprinkler systems to be installed in residential structures. The village will also be seeking bids for the Humbert Road Sanitary Sewer Extension Project. The plan is to take the sewer line under the train tracks, and connect Godfrey Road to the area near the Illinois 255 interchange, which has been looked at for possible commercial development in the future.
