Streets & Alleys
The Village of Pearl City has been very pro-active on it's Streets & Alley maintenance program in the last 10 years. The committee has committed to the asphalt overlay (black-topping) of the streets as opposed to the seal-coating that has been used in the past. Asphalt overlaying of the streets provides a longer life and less repairs.
The Streets & Alleys Committee for 2014-2015 consists of Chairman James Westaby, committee member Robert Asche, committee member Larry Johnson. Rob Knoup performs the maintenance for the Village.
2014 Street & Alley Projects
1) A Storm Sewer project has been approved on South Street extending into the alley between IL 73 & S. First Street. This project will alleviate the water draining into a lower area in the alley.
2) A parking area along Summit Street extending into Lions Park is being discussed as a construction project to increase parking in an already congested area. The idea is to create diagonal parking opposite the Pearl City School increases the parking space from 5 spots to 12-15 spots.
3) Discussions are currently discussed on the yearly street maintenance program keeping with our 10 year study.
4) A storm sewer catch basin has been approved for installation behind the homes of 500, 508, and 514 North Main Street to alleviate the flooding issues in the rear yards.
