The Historic Preservation Commission was established in 1998 to promote the protection and enhancement of places of special character or historical
interest or value in the City. The City's Historic Preservation ordinance provides a mechanism to identify and preserve the distinctive and
architectural characteristics of the City that represent the City's cultural, social, economic, political and architectural history. The Commission
identifies individual properties as Historic Landmarks and larger areas as Historic Districts, both of which are presented to the City Council
for approval. As of the beginning of 2009, there have been 30 Landmarks and 1 District approved by the City Council.
The Commission also sponsors occasional educational programs about proper preservation and restoration techniques and materials, and reviews Certificates
of Appropriateness which are required to be submitted for any proposed exterior alterations to official City Landmarks. A primary focus of
the Commission is the restoration of the Daniel Dove Collins House at 621 West Main. This building is one of the oldest houses in the City,
built around 1845 in a Greek Revival style. With Federal, State and local grants and private donations, the foundation and exterior work has
been completed on the house and the interior work should be accomplished soon. This will be the first historic home attraction for the City
and plans are to furnish it to the period of 1840-1860 and eventually have it open for public visitation and educational programs.
The Commission consists of 8 members who must be a City resident and meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month at City Hall at 5:30 p.m.
The Board is supported by the Uptown Coordinator.
Historic Preservation Commission Members are appointed to 3-year terms by the Mayor with the consent of the City Council.
A Collinsville Landmark is any structure, site, or district that the City Council has certified because of its historical and/or architectural
importance. The City Council awards Landmark Status to structures, sites, or districts upon the recommendation of the Historic Preservation

All residential customers will receive a new 95-gallon trash cart, during the weeks of Monday, June 26th through Friday, July 7th. These
blue trash carts are similar to the current recycling cart, but with a black lid labeled trash.
Additional trash carts may be leased for $2/month, with a 3 month commitment.
A resident can exchange their 95-gallon trash cart for a 65-gallon trash cart, free of charge, through August 31, 2017.
Residents will no longer need to provide their own containers for trash.
Republic Services will dispose of the personal trash containers through July 31, 2017. If you want
Republic Services to dispose of your trash containers, set them at the curb and mark “take container.”
Some residents may have a change in their service date. Watch your mail the week of June 26, 2017 for service date information.
Proper cart placement for automated service:
- Have your cart at the curb by 6am of your service day.
- Place the cart at least five (5) feet from any object; like a tree, pole, fire hydrant, mailbox, electrical box, cable box, etc. and at least five(5)
feet away from cars so the automated arm can reach your cart.
- Please have this same distance of five (5) between trash and recycle carts.
- Don’t lean anything against the cart.
- Don’t place your cart under a tree or near utility lines.
- Place carts one (1) foot from the curb or edge of the street.
- All trash must be bagged and contained inside your Republic Service cart, with the lid closed.

The City of Collinsville partnered with Pat & Leonard Reitz to bring you the Hometown Heroes Banner Program. The Banners will be on display in
Uptown Collinsville until after Veteran's Day 2016. This is the first year for the banner program and it has been a huge success with over 140
banners purchased by local family members of our armed services.
Below is the video of the Dedication Ceremony held September 24, 2016. Thank you to Pat & Leonard Reitz for organizing this great program, and
of course, thank you to the Veterans and their families for their dedication and service to our country.
The Mission Lifeline award was recently received by the Collinsville Fire Department.
The Mission Lifeline is an initiative started by the American Heart Association to
address gaps in cardiac care with the goal of improving outcomes through a combined
effort between EMS, Emergency Room, and the cardiac catheterization lab. The
program is a coordinated and proactive system that allows both EMS and hospital staff
to function as a single team with the purpose of improving survival and over all
outcomes from acute coronary syndromes. The parameters used to measure success
are based on a 90 min time window from first medical contact to the revascularization of
the effected artery. In addition, the department is rated on a set of protocols for which
patients should receive a 12- Lead ECG in the field and our compliance to these
The Collinsville Fire Department has received the Silver award this year, a step up from
the Bronze level recognition received last year. This designation indicated we are an
effective partner in improving overall outcomes and reducing the likelihood of significant
disability or death. In 2015, we diagnosed and treated 11 ST- Elevated myocardial
infarctions with excellent outcomes occurring in all cases. These are 11 residents who
previously would have experienced lengthy delays in their care and the probability of a
negative outcome would be high.
At the City Council Meeting June 27th, 2016, Mission Lifelife Director Art Miller presented Captain Tim Rainey, along with Mayor John Miller & City Manager Mitch Bair the award from the American Heart Association.
