The individual who eluded custody last week, was arrested on Saturday November 4th by the Mt Olive Police Department. He is being charged with escape, residential burglary, resisting a peace officer and other charges. We continue to work with other departments in Macoupin and Montgomery counties to try and clear several other burglaries this individual is suspected of committing. We appreciate the help of the Macoupin County Sheriff Department, Staunton, Benld, and Gillespie Police Departments along with units from the Illinois State Police.

We want everyone to be aware of the Mt. Olive CUSD #5 PTA 5K this Saturday. We've attached a map of the route and we ask that drivers please keep an eye out for runners. There are a couple of events this weekend like the Mother Jones 5k and the Mt Olive Fall Festival. We hope everyone enjoys the great community events and remains safe.

**************** Turner Hall Parking *************** “No Parking” barricades have been erected near certain intersections around Turner Hall. This is to allow emergency vehicles access to the area. We hope everyone has a good time and enjoys themselves at an event that is greatly benefiting the community. But we need to make sure everyone is safe and has access to emergency responders. Do not park beside or move the barricades. Violators will be ticketed and/or towed.

Last night our newest officer was recognized for earning his certification as a police officer. This is a photo of Alderman Webb (Chairman of the Police Committee) presenting Officer Nick Schulte with his state certificate. Officer Schulte started out as a dispatcher. He attended the Southwestern Illinois College Police Academy where he earned the highest GPA in his class. He has completed his field training and we are very happy to have him working with us. Congratulations Nick!

We will be participating in the statewide siren test tomorrow at 10am. The tests will occur the first Tuesday of each month.

With the warmer weather, officers will be going through town notifying residents of ordinance violations. If these violations are not corrected, citations will be issued. We are asking the residents to help out by: 1. Removing any accumulation of junk or trash from public view 2. Removing any inoperative or unregistered vehicles from public view 3. Large swimming pools (both in ground and above ground) must have a four foot high barrier preventing small children from accessing the pool. 4. Please remove any items containing stagnant water that will breed mosquitos…. including pools that are no longer being used.

Repairs are being conducted on the tornado siren today. The siren may sound throughout the afternoon as it is being tested.

The railroad crossing at Poplar St. will be closed through Monday. Norfolk Southern needed to make emergency repairs to the crossing and they are being delayed by the weather.

City Compost site will be closed for the weekend.
