Chatham was not under the recent South Sangamon Water Commission boil order. There was a boil order from some South Sangamon customers, but Chatham was not part of it. However, the official press release around the order erroneously included all of the commission’s customers.

Chatham was able to avoid a boil order because things went right on Chatham’s side. When the problems were detected in the South Sangamon portion, the valve to Chatham shut off the contaminated water as it was designed to do. By purchasing water from CWLP in Springfield, Chatham avoided a boil order.

The Village Board was frustrated with South Sangamon’s handling of the situation. Water systems are complicated, and issues do arise. But by putting out an inaccurate press release, not only did it cause confusion in the public, it made the workers in the village look bad. While the Board was sympathetic to the personnel transitions South Sangamon is making, they still found the problem and poor communication to be vexing.

Budget FY19

The Board also heard a presentation about the budget for the next fiscal year. Revenues are projected to only increase by one percent, leading to a tight budget situation. You can follow along with the Budget Presentation , which starts at the 47:40 mark.
