‘Tis the season for family and friends and lots of Christmas fun in the Steelville community. Lights and decorations are brightening the town, Santa will be visiting with local children, there will be pageants crowning the new Christmas Prince and Princess and Junior Miss Steelville, and a parade celebrating the holidays on Main Street.
Candidate filing for the April 2019 election will begin on December 11. Open positions will need to be filled for the Steelville School Board, the city of Steelville, and several other local boards.
Steelville Schools should have a new bus shed at the downtown campus within six months. After a process that began with the sale of the current facility six years ago, the board of education voted last week to award a bid to a Cuba contractor to build the new structure at a cost of $480,000.
