The village of Cahokia has an ordinance on the books called Quiet Hours, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. This ordinance was approved in the 1960s when Cahokia was considered a bedroom community. Recently, I sent a letter to Mayor Gary Cornwell complaining about Allied Waste Systems picking up Dumpster trash at midnight in violation of this ordinance.
Apparently the Cahokia Police Department doesn't feel it has to enforce ordinances throughout the village. Thus officers hang out at a gas station on Camp Jackson Road awaiting dispatched calls and not patrolling the village.
