Before closing the book on 2013, one local leader is taking a final look at the progress made in his municipality over the last year. Bethalto Mayor Alan Winslow describes his first eight months in office as “busy but successful”, noting the completion of several projects, including the second phase of the Central Street project.

Winslow Comments

Winslow says that the expansion of the Bethalto Sports Complex and the progress made towards developing the former Wayside Estates property are a few of the other highlights of 2013.

As for what’s in store for 2014, Winslow says the top priorities will be finding the funding to upgrade the village’s sanitation and storm sewer system and drawing more commercial business to the village.
