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.

Edwardsville Township Board Approves Renovation & Expansion Bid

After 8 years of work, the Edwardsville Township Board voted Wednesday evening 5-0 approving the bid to move forward with the renovation and expansion of Edwardsville Township Hall at 300 West Park Street in Edwardsville.  At the bid opening on Tuesday, three bids were submitted with the approved low bidder being Millenium Construction for $1,385,000.

“Since being elected to the Township Board in 2017, this project has been a weight around the Township’s neck,” said Kevin Hall, Edwardsville Township Supervisor. “To finally be moving forward and seeing an end in sight; a date where we can better serve the taxpayers of Edwardsville Township with an accessible, modern office is a relief.”

The project will bring many improvements and upgrades to the building from the late 1980s.  It will include an increase in space, updating to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements, upgraded HVAC, plumbing, electrical, lighting and more modern standards.

The project is expected to take around a year to complete with details on groundbreaking still being finalized.  The Township Supervisor’s and Assessor’s staffs will be moving to a temporary location off site during the construction.
