Re: Can't they just eliminate the Township?
I agree Opie, the village Has about 65k a year that goes to collinsville, chouteau and nameoki townships, this Monet goes towards road improvements that happen outside the village limits, because any of the 3 townships would charge for any work on village roads work. I donít want to make this about township vs village govt, our residents need that money spent in their roads. The village hires the township to do quite a bit of work, they do a good job and itís generally a very reasonable cost compared to contractors, who also have a profit margin to make
I def think if we would get 100% of the road and bridge money, the village could start a road crew of 2 workers. This would not be to compete with the township. The township has a back log of their own work, they are busy with their own work. it would just help the village keep up with pot holes, concrete and drainage ditch maintenance.
