The Teutopolis Board of Trustees met on Wednesday, November 16th. A public meet-and-greet was held before the meeting with the newly appointed CEO/President of the Effingham Regional Growth Alliance, Craig Nelson. Nelson informed the Board of his plans to bring businesses to Effingham County. These plans include providing affordable but quality housing in the area, especially focusing on potential employees for said businesses. All plans are still in the conceptual phase.
In the scheduled Board meeting, the Teutopolis Board of Trustees approved the minutes for November 2, 2016 and approved the payment of bills. The Board also heard from Village Foreman, Carl Pals. Pals informed the Board that semi-trucks have been using village roads; and when making sharp turns, have been knocking down street signs. The Board discussed having stricter enforcement for semis that use village roads. Construction vehicles that are using the roads to get to construction sites and rock trucks that are oiling the roads in town will still be allowed on village roads. Pals also informed the Board that the sidewalks in front of the Grade School on Oak St are directly above the water lines. The Board then decided to wait until Spring to complete the sidewalk project on Oak St. The Board also discussed looking into online bill payment.
The Teutopolis Board of Trustees met in the Teutopolis Village Hall at 106 W. Main St in Teutopolis.
