CITY VOTES TO ABATE 2013 BOND PAYMENT •PDF• •Print• •E-mail•

On April 17 the City Council voted unanimously  to abate the $36,500 bond payment that would have been added onto the Real Estate Tax bill for 2013.  This abatement is the result of the excess funds left over in the City’s  St. Louis Street project fund to bury the utility lines and install the new street lights.  One of the major reasons for the surplus was a greater than anticipated grant from the Greater Edwardsville Area Community Fund.  That grant was the result of a drive engineered by the Historic St. Louis Street Association to raise private donations to fund the grant.  Over $184,000 was raised by this effort.  The action by the City Council is just one more example of the City’s willingness to work with its citizens to make the City a better place for all.  It was also a recognition by the City of the Commit. HSSA paid over $12,000 over the 6 years of the project to make this happen.
