Village Board Meeting in Review
At the  May 2, 2023 Board meeting the Board approved the following items:

  • An ordinance amending the comprehensive plan relating to the Greenbelt Trail concept.
  • A quote to upgrade the lighting at the Community Learning Center (Library/Health/Park & Rec) to LED lighting.  This item was included in the 2023 Budget.
  • A proposal to change the provider the Village uses for emergency medical billing services.  
  • A proposal regarding a Community Recreation Space Study.  The Village had budgeted to hire a planning consultant to complete a Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan.  The School District was also planning to complete a similar study for their indoor and outdoor facilities, so the proposal would have the same company completing both studies.
  • The Fire Department received Board approval in December 2022 to build a training facility at the Water Utility property on 60th Street.  Due to some concerns with that location the new location will be on a lot adjacent to the Department of Public Works building.

May 16, 2023 Village Board Meeting Preview
The Board will consider approving:

  • A quote for a renovation project in the Police Department firing range.  This item was included in the 2023 Budget.
  • Whether to seek quotes for the replacement of the Village Board room A/V equipment.  Some of the existing audio equipment is failing.
  • The Village President's recommended appointments to the various Board and Committees.
  • A special event permit for the Bike Safety and Touch-a-truck event.
  • The 6th amendment to the development agreement for the former Boston Store site.  This amendment will provide an extension for the developer to provide a written notice of objections, since the Village is awaiting approvals on the amended operating agreement at Southridge Mall.
The Village Board will also receive an update on the Village's water meter replacement project, which is close to completion.

To view the full agenda:  


Recycling Center Construction: Beginning April 26th there will be some changes to the drop-off location for some items as they prepare for construction.  Construction will take place on the west portion of the recycling center.  All services provided will still be available, but might be in a new temporary location.  The current yard waste pile, e-waste and television drop off locations have been temporarily relocated.  Please be patient and expect a longer wait due to the construction.  The anticipated completion date for this project is the end of June.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time, and please reach out to the Department of Public Works with any questions or concerns.
