Moving Forward to Abolish Godfrey Township

Story by WBGZ Radio


Trustees in the Village of Godfrey have taken another step toward abolishing Godfrey Township. While the board voted unanimously nearly a year ago to do so, wording in state legislation prohibited the effort from going any further at the time, but the wheels are now in motion to give it another try.

Village Attorney Tom Long says the next step will be to hold public hearings.

The township and village share geographical boundaries and Godfrey board members have informally discussed the move over the past couple of years. The board voted to hold public hearings before both the township and village meetings on April 3rd.
