Tinker (Collinsville City Manager) presented a slide show and answered questions
at the Chamber of Commerce lunch time meeting March 4th. Mike's show began with
some reminders of Collinsville's flourishing past with the streets lined with
people when the smelters and brick plants were booming. Tinker transitioned
to recent city improvements and anticipated growth with three housing additions
totaling more than 235 lots for new houses. The Victory Energy Addition south
of town will be bringing new jobs when completed. Bids will be unsealed for
review Friday (Mar. 5th) and cleanup and stabilization of the burnt out City
Hall building can soon begin. Detailed plans for the improved intersection at
5th and Main were shown. That project is on ODOT's April bid list and work could
begin shortly after that. Tinker indicated there would be islands, pavement
trips and video monitoring which would allow improved traffic flow through that
for 5th and Main Intersection Improvements
