Stratton Lock and Dam UPDATE

Dear concerned citizen,

Recently, I informed you that DNR has restricted the hours at the Stratton Lock and Dam due to the loss of personnel, and that they are in the process of trying to fill those positions as quickly as possible.
I have since spoken with the hiring personnel and they are making it their top priority to fill the vacancies, but it is taking longer than expected. In my recent conversations, I was told that human resources is struggling to find qualified candidates for the job.
If you are interested in one of the job openings or know someone who is, please contact Terry Gillam at 217-782-5578.

I will continue to keep a close watch on this situation, speaking with the Department of Natural Resources on a weekly basis, so please feel free to stay in touch with my office on our progress. 

If you choose, I can be reached directly by email at or by phone (815) 455-6330.
