From Belleville News-Democrat:  The O’Fallon City Council has advanced projects that focus on improving infrastructure.

At Monday’s meeting, aldermen approved the first steps for several targeted areas, including East State Street sewer improvements, water main replacements in Southview subdivision and the Old Collinsville Road/Milburn School Road roundabout construction.

“This is the start of more of an emphasis on our infrastructure needs,” Mayor Herb Roach said.

The council prioritized streets, water and sewer issues for its strategic plan last fall, along with public safety and economic development, Roach noted.

The city wants to design and build a sanitary sewer system to serve the 17 homes and the O’Fallon Township Building located along the south side of East State Street between Lee Drive and Seven Hills Road. They are are currently served by septic systems.

The council agreed to pay $75,00 to Gonzalez Companies to prepare an application to the St. Clair County Intergovernmental Grants Department. They will provide plans and specifications that can be used to solicit bids. They will also coordinate the submission of the application.
