GODFREY - The Godfrey Village Board passed one ordinance and two resolutions at their first regularly scheduled meeting of 2023, which was held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 3. Trustees Karen McAtee and Rick Lauschke were both absent from the meeting.

The Village Board unanimously approved an ordinance amending the Municipal Code of the Village Of Godfrey by the addition of Article IV, which establishes standards for the construction of facilities on the right-of-way. Essentially, this ordinance updates the language of the village’s current right-of-way ordinance, which was put into effect in 1992.
