In late 2013 and early 2014 Cindy and Bob Bingham, Curtis Williams, Todd Horn, and Herman Koester completed a "Lighting Audit" for the Stookey Township part of Ogles Subdivision. Currently in the Stookey part of Ogles (in most locations) the street lights are 500 feet apart and in the Belleville part of Ogles they are 200 to 250 feet apart. If you drive through the subdivision you can certainly tell when you are in the city or township part of Ogles.

In a spring 2014 Township meeting Supervisor David Bone made a motion to budget $5,000 for street lighting in Ogles during FY 2014. Approximately $4,000 was spent on: 1) one new light and pole between 317 and 313 Oliver Lee Dr.; 2) new light and bracket on an existing pole on Moreland Dr (between Blue Ridge Dr. and Southgate Dr.; 3) new light and bracket on an existing pole on Werner Rd. just north of the railroad bridge; 4) several large wattage bulbs in existing light fixtures.

In a spring 2015 Township meeting Trustee Ryan Stookey made a motion to budget $2,000 for street lighting on Ogles during FY 2015. Since there was about $1,000 left from the previous year one new light and pole was installed between 13 and 17 Briarwood Dr.

In 2016 we requested a new street light (either between 7108 and 7012 Carr Dr or between 7201 and 7119 Carr Dr), however Trustee Curtis Williams offered to have Ameren install a light only on an existing pole between 7010 Carr Dr. and 801 Werner Rd. We rejected that location and there were no new street lights added in Stookey in 2016.

Where we are today:

We are in need of more street lights to lighten up the Stookey Township part of Ogles. Currently there's about $10,000 in the budget that could be available for Street Lights and we are asking Stookey Township to add two new street lights on poles and one new street light on an existing pole to the agenda for January 2, 2017.

By signing this petition I am supporting the additional to additional street lighting in the Stookey Township portion of Ogles.

Thank You!
