Township Appoints New Trustee

By unanimous vote Wednesday (1-25-23), the Edwardsville Township Board appointed Glen Carbon resident Sitsofe Luh Nutsukpui to fill a vacant trustee position. The vacancy was created with the resignation of board member Charles “Skip” Schmidt in December.

Ms. Nutskupui currently works at Madison County Community Development with assistance programs like LIHEAP & ERAP, programs that the Township has processed for years. In terms of community service she is currently on Glen Carbon Events Committee, Edwardsville School District’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee, she is a member of the Edwardsville NAACP, has been involved in several school PTOs, among many others.

“Sitso Luh Nutsukpui stood out from the beginning with her experienced background and passion for our community.  She has served on committees for the Village of Glen Carbon and the Edwardsville School District and volunteered with many local organizations,” said Township Supervisor Kevin Hall. “I feel she will be a great addition with a fresh perspective to bring to the Township Board.”

The Township is moving so building renovation can start

Edwardsville Township Relocating to 900 Hillsboro (Madison County Farm Bureau Building) during Township Hall Renovation

Edwardsville Township will be moving to the Madison County Farm Bureau building located at 900 Hillsboro Avenue Suite 4 in Edwardsville at the end of November. The Township Supervisor’s office will be open for business the entire time, whereas the Township Assessor’s office will be closed November 21st-23rd.  The current office at 300 West Park Street will be open until the end of the day on November 23rd. Then after Thanksgiving, starting Monday, November 28th, operations will begin at 900 Hillsboro Avenue.

“We hope to provide a seamless transition for the community as we move into the temporary office space at the Farm Bureau building,” said Supervisor Kevin Hall.

To travel from 300 West Park Street to 900 Hillsboro, head a block north to Vandalia St. and then go east.  When you reach Hillsboro, turn left (north) and the building will be two blocks down on the right.

There will be partial bus service using the Madison County Transit Bus #22 that runs down St. Louis Street, stops at Vandalia Street and Shell Lane, then there would be a 5 minute walk to 900 Hillsboro.

The Township hopes to start renovations to Township Hall at 300 West Park Street on December 1, 2022.
