Village Of Moweaqua Receives Funding For Replacing Lead Pipes

The Village of Moweaqua is receiving funding from Illinois to replace Lead Service Lines. Illinois EPA Director John J. Kim says Moweaqua is receiving $1,917,810 in funding to replace those lines as well as water meters that contain lead in the community.  The funding is provided through the IEPA’s State Revolving Fund.  This provides low-interest loan funding for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater projects.  The funding is in the form of principal forgiveness, so the Village of Moweaqua will not have to repay any of the money. 


The Village anticipates using the funding to replace 225 lead service lines in the community along with water meters that contain lead.  Lead is a toxic metal that can accumulate in the body over time.  Lead can enter drinking water when corrosion of pipes and/or fixtures occurs.  Service lines are small pipes that carry drinking water from main water lines into homes.  Many homes built prior to 1990 have these lead service lines, or lead-containing plumbing fixtures or faucets.  


There are many resources that talk about lead in your home. Find those resources by clicking here.  In State Fiscal Years 2017-2023, the Illinois EPA provided $122 million in funding for lead service line replacement for projects directly related to activities that reduce or eliminate lead from potable water.  In 2024, IEPA has awarded over $13 million in funding.

Christian County Sheriff's Office Recognizing National Police Week

This week has served as National Police Week and in 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day, a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice law enforcement officials across the country make daily to protect and serve their communities.

Chief Deputy Jim Baker of the Christian County Sheriff’s Office says this week is not only about remembering officers who have fallen in the line of duty but current law enforcement as well.


Chief Deputy Baker describes the policing profession as a career rather than a job as officers and deputies risk their lives to help those in need, a mindset that is instilled in most if not all individuals who take on the difficult position.


As National Police Week comes to a close we remember the dedicated law enforcement officials current or passed on, who strive to keep communities safe with their bravery and unwavering commitment to their duty.

Chief Deputy Jim Baker appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.


Taylorville Finance Committee Meets; No Decisions Made On Small Town Taylorville

The Taylorville Finance Committee and Ordinance Committee met on Thursday evening for a 90-minute session to discuss budgets, BDD Application Reviews, and more importantly the future of Downtown/Small Town Taylorville and whether or not the budget would include them this fiscal year. Dyanne Skinner with Small Town Taylorville (STT) gave a presentation to start the discussion and informed the public who attended the meeting.  She presented the budget ideas for advertising moving forward and said that the community would miss STT if it wasn’t there. 



Alderman Randy Mitchelson opened up the floor for comments and asked that the two sides try not to repeat each other but to bring up new and valid points.  Justin Griffin, Wanda Crowder, and Lee Skinner spoke out in support of STT receiving BDD funds.  Justin Griffin says that STT is extremely important.



Opposed to STT receiving BDD funds included Pat Kretzer, Jerry Cocagne, and Shannon Boston.  Pat Kretzer says he’s not opposed to STT but he is opposed to the organization receiving BDD funds.



No motion was made at the committee meeting.  Randy Mitchelson did speak on the issue and says that many people he has spoken to feels that the focus on advertising should be on the community and not individual businesses. 



Mitchelson says he has many concerns and has asked for changes in the organization and the mission. Budgets are still needed to be set for the upcoming fiscal year. The next city council meeting is set for May 20th.

Manners Park Sampling And Testing Shows No Current Danger To Park

New sampling and testing has shown that Manners Park and the area around Manners Park is deemed safe by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.  Testing was done by Universal Engineering Sciences (UES) to perform surface soil and soil vapor sampling and testing at the Park. The sampling and testing were done to assess potential exposures to Park visitors.  More than 20 surface soil samples and six soil vapor samples were collected.  Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons or PNA/PAHs, were within IEPA concentration levels or below those levels.  Soil vapor results did NOT indicate an exposure risk via Construction Worker or residential scenario.  


Ameren Illinois has implemented in-situ soil solidification and stabilization (ISS) in August and September 2023.  Implementation of ISS caused mobilization and partitioning from subsurface soil to ambient air due to the mechanical mixing process.  The park does say that odors from those volatile organic compounds or VOCs did create a public nuisance and possible air inhalation exposure risk to Park visitors.  After Ameren stopped the work the odors went down.  New studies show there is no risk whatsoever to the park from those odors after the pump and treat system was sealed. 


Independent sampling and testing at Manners Park supports that there is NOT a current exposure risk to Park visitors from the Ameren MGP site. To see the full release from Manners Park, click here

Great Western Products Cuts Ribbon Officially Opening New Pana Plant Thursday


Despite rainy skies on Thursday, the weather was perfect underneath the tent where Great Western Products in Pana officially cut the ribbon to open their multi-million dollar plant that makes a variety of oil and cooking products for the concession industry.   Ground-breaking took place last fall on the facility, that employs around 50 with expectations to add jobs in the Christian County community.


The new building replaced a building west of Assumption that burned 2 years ago.



Great Western Vice President and General Manager Rocky Franklin told the group of employees and dignitaries the Pana expansion will enable the company to expand their offerings in the cooking industry.




Kirby Casner, the City of Pana’s Economic Development Director and also part of the Pana Industrial Development Corporation, was instrumental in landing the facility to build in Pana’s Industrial Park.  She told those gathered landing the Great Western plant to Pana was a big deal.




Doug Woltman with Woltman Construction, general contractor for the project, told attendees building the Great Western Plant from scratch took a lot of work.




Great Western Products was acquired by Performance Food Group, or P-F-G, in March of 2021.   Pat Haggerty with P-F-G told the crowd Thursday his company empowers local plant management to make decisions on how the facility operates.



Haggerty said he expects the Pana facility to double its present size of one-hundred thousand square feet, in coming years.


Following the remarks from the 4, the ribbon was officially cut to open the plant.   Lunch and tours were provided those in attendance after the ceremony.

Taylorville School Board Holds May Meeting

The Taylorville School Board met Tuesday evening to celebrate their retirees, honor their graduates, look at updates on the gym and classroom additions, and discuss the performing arts center at their monthly meeting. Tracie Boehme spoke during public comments and urged the board to do something with the art program for the elementary school.  She was very concerned about space as it appears the art program will be moving from a classroom to “art on a cart” that will go to various rooms instead of an actual classroom.  This is in part due to smaller classroom sizes. 



The board said they would discuss art options moving forward. The board received a construction update from Jeff Pflederer, Project Manager with Midwest Construction on the gym and classroom addition at THS.  



There was a heavy discussion on the performing arts center. Tom Finks asked for a discussion in the future for future development and construction of a performing arts center. Finks said he didn’t see what the issue was with having a discussion.  Ann Chandler said it was too early for a discussion. 



After much discussion, a decision was made to set up a future discussion on the performing arts center. The list of seniors eligible for graduation was approved. Updates were approved for both the Junior High, High School, and Elementary Schools. 


A ceremony was held for retirees including Jacqueline Foil—20 years, Lynn Durham—34 years, Melissa Williams—23 years, Diane Wilham—33 years, Jean Ninmer—23 years, Sara Pennock—30 years, Tracie Boehme—31 years, Deon McConnell—25 years, Lynn Dexheimer—8 years, Katie Dubre—30 years, and Connie Beaman—13 years.  We here at Regional Radio News, salute all of the retirees and graduates!
