Alderman Bennett shares his concerns, asks questions

Steelville Alderman Bill Bennett has a number of items of city business that he believes should be addressed by city council members. At the July 15 regular council meeting, he presented a list of those items to be added to the agenda for the evening.

Cool content on display at Gallery Zeke

“Explosion of Cool Content,” an exhibition of abstract art, will be on display at the Steelville Arts Council’s Gallery Zeke during the month of August.
