Busy Meeting for Grayville Council


The Grayville City Council met on Wednesday night, having rescheduled Monday’s meeting due to lack of quorum.

The Treasurer’s Report shows $1,493,831.70 in restricted funds, $928,066.40 in investments and $145,723.34 in cash available for operations for a total of $2,567,621.44.

Treasurer Walden praised the managers, lifeguards and utility department for a good job in running the swimming pool. The pool’s attendance averaged 50 per day and there was only one day the pool was closed due to lack of lifeguards. The season ended on Tuesday, August 10th.

Chief Hatcher gave his monthly report.

Mayor Thompson reported on a tree struck by lightning at the cemetery and said it was taken down. He thanked the Grayville Police Department, Little Wabash Fire Department, White County Sheriff’s Department, the Illinois State Police and IDNR for their long hours during the river search.

In Old Business, Mayor Thompson said there was nothing new on the septic topic, but asked the council members to be prepared to discuss whether they should have a campground host, limit the amount of time a camper can stay, and setting a no traffic curfew.

The council approved the LIHEAP Agreement with WADI for 2022-2024.

The council accepted a quote from Elite Line Striping out of Evansville to resurface the park basketball court and re-stripe the city hall parking lot. The cost quoted was $3,800.00. A quote from Huff Sealing in Albion was for $6,964.00.

A change order in the amount of $15,000.00 for the current water line replacement project was tabled until more information on the need can be obtained.

Grayville Resident Chuck Turner was present to ask about the progress of the water line project.

The next Grayville City Council meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 23rd at 7 p.m. in the Grayville City Hall.
