Rushville Gets State Grant

Rushville, IL – Rushville has received a $110,000 state grant to extend a new sewer line to the northern part of town. Mayor Ron Shepherd says the new line will go to an area of about ten homes. It's bordered by the high school and the Schuylr Fair Board property. Shepherd says the homes in the recently-annexed area are now on a septic system. He says having a sewer line to the area could help development, or make growth at the school or the fairgrounds easier. The town will provide $50,000 in match money. Shepherd says the engineering is almost completed, and construction could begin next spring.
