Park Board Seeking Volunteers now for Trunk or Treat in October.... Maybe it seems too early to be thinking about Halloween, but the Swansea Park Board and the Swansea Patriots are already planning their second annual "Spooktacular" for Saturday October 27th, at Mel Price Park.
The organizations are looking for individuals, families, clubs or businesses who would like to participate in the "Trunk or Treat" and hand out treats to 'little goblins'. If interested, please come to the Government Center at 1444 Boul Ave and fill out an application. All participants must do so to gain entry. The park will be turned into the "Wicked Forest" with many attractions for kids and families to enjoy.

Crews working for Ameren Illinois will be trimming trees in and around your area in the near future. Our qualified line clearance trimmers will trim trees that could interfere with electric lines running from pole to pole. Our contractors are nationally recognized as professional arboricultural companies who meet American National Standards Institute (ANSI) pruning standards and pruning methods endorsed by the International Society of Arborists (ISA).


Attached are maps and common addresses of the areas affected. In addition to notifying you, Ameren Illinois will mail a notice to customers who may be affected by the distribution tree trimming work. We will also provide a public notice in local newspapers.
