CARBON CLIFF -- The village board Public Properties Committee will drive around the village on March 11 to see which streets need repair.

The drive is designed to compile a list of needed street repairs, which will be prioritized to see which can be done with the $44,000 in available funding.

The village board learned Tuesday the water main extension from Silvis is nearly complete. All that is left to do is run tests for water pressure and bacteria level.

The board also discussed selling Argillo Days and Centennial T-shirts for $3.50 to raise money for the Food Basket Account. Argillo buttons will be available for $1 and old street signs for $5.
