Mayor Robert Marcus announced on Tuesday, July 26 that the Village of Glen Carbon is seeking resident input for two surveys on the Village website.
The first survey is for the Village’s Parks and Trails and future development of the program. The second survey relates to the Village’s Comprehensive Plan and the future development of the Village.
Mayor Marcus also announced the 2023 Kicks on 66 Car Show and Cruise slated for September 16. The event will take place at Ray M. Schon Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone interested in registering a vehicle for the show or cruise can visit the Kicks on 66 website.
In the only official action of the evening, the Village Board approved an ordinance vacating village owned property in Savannah Crossing.
The strip of property was an easement previously held by MCT as part of the trail systems. Once they determined they were no longer interested in maintaining the easement, they relinquished the property to the Village.
The Village has determined that the best use of the property is to relinquish it to the property owners who border the easement. This ordinance will make that action official. Each piece is approximately twelve feet of property.
The next meeting of the Glen Carbon Village Board will take place on Tuesday, August 8 at 7 p.m.
