Long-time Southtown Council member William (Bill) Egelhoff passed away Friday, March 11, 2016 surrounded by his loving family. Bill was an incredibly loyal member of the Southtown Council, serving for many years on the Executive Board of Directors.

Bill was a friendly, loyal and loving person who had great respect for his family and friends. His fun-loving spirit was enjoyed by all who knew him.

In October of 2015, The Troost Avenue Community Improvement District added 16 banners throughout the Troost corridor. A light blue banner with a colorful and unique tulip was the winning design from a group of many talented artists. These fun banners can be seen on Troost from 46th Street to 75th Street as well as 63rd Street and Rockhill Road.
