• The Monticello City Council has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the May 23rd fire on the former railway bridge over the Sangamon River. The bridge was reconstructed to become part of 0.6 mile bike and walking path. Damage has been estimated as high as $150,000.

  •  The bike path over the Sangamon River in Monticello is closed for repairs after a fire was apparently set on the bridge.

    According to Floyd Allsop, superintendent of city services for Monticello, the trestle was reported to be on fire Wednesday evening.
