Supervisors Meet in Hillsboro

Written by on September 28, 2011 in News

A variety of topics came up at the supervisors meeting in Hillsboro last night. There was a concern about a culvert on Ash Street. Those in attendance were also concerned about a new culvert on the Henry Van Buren county line road. It was the general opinion it isn’t going to work, it seems too high and isn’t buried deep enough. Since the two counties take turns maintaining the road residents weren’t sure who put it in but thought Henry County did. The supervisors promised to look into it. The residents asked for clarification regarding rural trash disposal since Whaley’s Waste is closing and the county signed a temporary contract with Wemiga Waste. Supervisor Kent White informed the group that a Hillsboro homeowner will receive assistance with home repairs thru the Great River Housing Trust Fund. The fund is handled thru Southeast Iowa Regional Planning and the county contributes to the fund. In fact, at their regular meeting Tuesday the supervisors committed funds for the next two years. Applications for assistance are available thru local banks and the auditor’s office. The group also discussed the possible closure of the Hillsboro post office. This doesn’t involve the county so the supervisors didn’t have any information to share.
