Cross Connection Survey PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 04 November 2013 15:55

Monmouth water customers will be receiving a Cross Connection Survey in the mail this week. That survey can either be completed on paper and dropped off at City Hall or you can take the survey on-line.

The Cross Connection Survey is required by the State of Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. The IEPA requires that each residence conduct a plumbing survey. The IEPA requires that the public water supply system initiate and collect the survey data. The purpose of the survey is to determine if cross connections exist in home plumbing systems. Your health and the health of the community can be protected by identifying and eliminating cross connections. Therefore, it is everyone’s civic duty to eliminate cross connections. Drinking water regulations prohibit cross connections. If you identify a cross connection, please contact your local plumber or the Monmouth Water Department at 309-734-6028 for assistance in eliminating potential hazards.

To take the survey on-line, click here.

 
National Entrepreneurship Week PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 20 February 2013 10:07

 

This week is National Entrepreneurship Week (February 16-23). Historically, most new jobs are created by local entrepreneurs taking a risk and bringing a new idea, product or service to market. These risk-takers are really the engine of our economy. We have had a history of bold entrepreneurs here in Monmouth that have helped to shape (and continue to shape) our community. Take a moment this week this week to celebrate those entrepreneurs and what they've given our City and region.

Are you a potential entrepreneur? Do you have that next great idea? If so, there are local and regional resources that can help you refine and focus your idea and take it from the back of a napkin to a business plan to a profitable business. If you think you have what it takes, stop by City Hall (or our local Small Business Development Center in Macomb) to get more information on how to bring your idea to reality.

Also, if you are, or know of a local entrepreneur that needs to be recognized for their efforts, why not fill out a nomination form for the 2013 Small Business Day Eagle Award?
