DCEO Sidewalk Grant Awarded to New Athens

We have received a grant to construct 1335 linear feet of ADA-compliant sidewalk adjacent to Spotsylvania Street from the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO).  The sidewalk will begin at Hanft street and proceed west.  To be eligible for the grant, the location had to specifically be along a major thoroughfare and located in close proximity to a public school. Sidewalks are an important part of our infrastructure, and we will be applying for more sidewalk related grants.

Thanks to Debby Politsch, Chairman of the Grants Committee, Gary Kearns, Chairman of the Streets and Alleys Committee, Arlene Geppert, village board member and Chris Remick, Superintendent of Public Works for all their hard work on the grant.
