- Impact Fees the Mayor noted since 2008 we’ve had impact fees that effect St. George School District, Bradley Grade School District, Bradley Bourbonnais High School District and a small portion of the grade school district. In the Impact agreement was an escalator of 4% each year in any year since 2008 the CPI has never reached 4%. He also noted at the present time Bradley and Bourbonnais have no impact fees. They have had discussion with BBCHS and Bradley Grade School who seem to be in favor of lowering impact fees. St. George seems to be hesitant to lower the fees although the Superintendant of the District thinks 4% is to high. The Mayor noted if you build a 2 bedroom home the impact home $1294.00, 3 bedroom $6582.00, 4 bedroom $8471.00. Mayor turned it over to Attorney Rowe to look at the existing Ordinance. Attorney Rowe stated we probably need to repeal the present the Ordinance because there is no appeal process in the Ordinance and at the same time we repeal we would be looking at different options to put into a new Ordinance.
ADJOURNMENT A motion was made by Trustee Balthazor and seconded by Trustee Cyr to adjourn the meeting. The meeting was adjourned at 7:06 p.m. on a unanimous aye vote.
