Mobile home destroyed by fire
Steelville fire crews responded to a first alarm, residential fire on River Ridge Lane on Sunday, April 6 just after noon.

Sports Club’s contract on hold
Miscommunication between the city of Steelville and the Steelville Sports Club led to some intense discussion at Monday night’s city council meeting. Sports club members and other volunteers recently completed a project to change the configuration of the aluminum bleachers located in the Community Park next to the baseball and softball fields. The project, however, had not been approved by the city council and some aldermen were not pleased as a result. When the Sports Club came to ask for a renewed contract and approval of some other park improvements, they were refused.
