Hearing of the Citizens:
There were several Village Residents attending the meeting to discussed with the Village President and Board of Trustees their concerns and frustrations over the flooding at the 1st Avenue Bridge over Argillo Creek. They are stating that six times this year that water has overflowed at the bridge and caused their yards to flood, leaving mud and dust behind, and water getting into their basements.
It was stated that August 2016 the Quad Cities had over 8” of rain, which broke many records for the amount of rain, they do live next to a creek, and their properties are located in a floodplain.
Resident’s stated and feel that all this changed when Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) removed and replaced the box culvert under Highway 84 (2nd Avenue, in Carbon Cliff) at Argillo Creek. IDOT replaced culvert in 2011 to a double 8’ X 5’ precast box culvert. The culvert at 1st Avenue is 14’ X 6’.
The Board is approving a proposal with McClure Engineering to look at the situation of 1st Avenue Bridge over Argillo Creek. The Engineer will then give the board an update and suggestions on solutions to fix and repair the flood problem and roadway.
Village Resident Carl Woodard from Orchard Court spoke about the Orchard Court Drainage Project. His retaining wall was removed for the project, which he was aware that it would be. The project was then supposed to have back fill and top soil put to slant the water toward the drainage curb in the roadway. As of now, there is not enough fill and the water does not get to the roadway, it is staying on the yard side of the curb. Village Engineer Loren Rains, said this will be address during the punch list and before final payment.
Village President’s Agenda items discussed:
• The meter at the Sewer Master Metering Pit, sewer going from Carbon Cliff into East Moline’s system on Ruth Road, has completely stopped working.

This was recommended from Jack Kusek, McClure Engineering memo dated August 30, 2016.
