Mayor Monahan gave the State of the Village Address at the Council meeting held on January 9, 2017.
The State of the Village is very good! I am extremely proud of what good people working together with your support have and can accomplish.
Due to Sound, financial practices we ended 2016 with $196,517.01 in unencumbered funds in our General Fund. We are not a bank and we owe you good services for your hard-earned tax money.
In 2016 we spent $165,000.00 on the street pavement project.
We hired a 4th full time Police Officer. This is in addition to our 4 to 6-part time and 12 to 15 Auxiliary officers.
Paid down early $154,000.00 on our sewer system loan (from year 2000). This allowed us to refinance the loan that will save the Village over $270,000.00 in interest over the life of the loan and will result in a $4 + dollar reduction in your monthly sewer bill.
We negotiated the trash and recycling service for the Village resulting in approximately a $9. Reduction in residents monthly billing. This was accomplished while extending at no additional cost a recycling program to all residents.
Built a pavilion in our Memorial park for your use = $22,000.00
In resolving a business code violation that resulted in the flooding of Glick Rd during heavy storms we spent $15,000.00 on re-directing the drainage once the business had rectified their part.
Safety is always our number 1 priority!
We have equipped our Police with body cameras and upgraded our cruiser dash cams. This protects both you and our Police. This upgrade cost $37,000.00
We had backup generators installed on both the Municipal building. and the Police building. We are now working on the plan to use the Municipal building as a heating and cooling center in the event of extended power loss to our residents.
We took delivery of a new replacement Police cruiser while reducing our monthly lease and providing the vehicle warranty.
I do want to thank all the people, Council, Administration, Boards, and Committees who with the strong support of our good residents and businesses helped make 2016 a great success!
