ALEDO — Mac's Convenience store on SE 3rd St. has satisfied the on-site clean-up requirements for an old gas tank leak, city council members learned Monday.|
City attorney Mark Walton said he reviewed an engineer's report stating it is doubtful there is contamination under city streets and no additional remediation was necessary. Council members approved a resolution which provides that, if contamination is found during future street work, Mac's will be responsible for clean-up.
In other matters, council members learned public transportation is available to Mercer County residents through RIM, a rural transportation system administered through Project NOW. Craig Harper from Bi-State Regional Commission told council members RIM service is available to rural residents of Rock Island and Mercer counties. Rides must start or end in a rural area; in Mercer County, all rides are considered rural.
RIM costs $3 for distances of one to 20 miles, $5 for 21 to 40 miles and $7 for more than 41 miles. Rides are available Monday through Friday, with 24-hour notice.
Mr. Harper said he is working with human service agencies in the county on Mobility Transit Summits to help educate residents on available services.
