Hutsonville trash pickup earlier; drainage fix working
Daily News

Residents in the Village of Hutsonville will have to start putting their trash out either Monday night or very early Tuesday morning for pickup.

It was reported at the Tuesday night village board meeting that Republic Services will now be picking up starting at around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. Mayor Tina Callaway said Republic has always requested that containers and trash be out by 6 a.m., but in recent years has not been picking up unit 11 a.m. or later. Because trucks are now being dispatched from Republic's Sumner location, they will be arriving in the village earlier.

As a reminder, all households in the village are required to have trash pickup with Republic Services.

It was also reported that five abandoned, derelict or severely damaged properties in the village have been demolished and cleaned up this summer. Callaway reminded the board that in an effort to assist residents, the village will pay for a dumpster or the equivalent amount up to $500 for additional services to aid residents in the cleanup.

Callaway also wants to remind residents that building and demolition permits are required for construction or demolition in the village, primarily because of the village's participation in the flood insurance program.

The drainage project on the south end of town seems to be working. Several residents reported being able to mow their yards for the first time all summer, and within a day or two of heavy rains. Trustee Bruce Callaway volunteered his time and equipment to assist residents with the private sections of the project.

Last month it was reported that a section of South Rose Street would need to be torn up and repaired as part of the project. Initial estimates had that portion of the project costing an additional $5,000. During the meeting the final cost was reported to be $5,865. It was also reported that RKN Drainage, the firm doing the work, made an extra effort to complete repairs and clean up before Riverfest.

Riverfest seems to have been a success for the village. The Fire Department-sponsored beer tent reported around 170 in attendance, and no problems.

No problems were also reported by Police Chief Nick Earnst. He also noted that the Hutsonville Police Facebook page is being revamped and should soon be up and running.

The next scheduled meeting will be Tuesday, Sept. 10.
