Village President’s Report: Timothy Nugent

This will be the last formal meeting of the Board for the year.

Mayor Nugent commented on the recent “Lighting of Main Street” and the Christmas activities that were held on Saturday December 7th and thanked Sarah Marion for the great job of organizing the event. The Village had several thousand people downtown and some of our food vendors ran out of food, but the weather was perfect.

The Village has engaged a company to video tape our events so we can update our new website. The website is not yet live yet, but Chris LaRocque will be sending out a link to the board so that they may go in and look at it.

Nothing on agenda tonight

Committee Reports:

Public Works and Utilities- Trustee Boyce

• Ordinance 19-26: An ordinance authorizing the sale of personal property- Surplus Municipal equipment. Public works will be replacing a tractor and 2 riding mowers. The existing equipment will be offered for sale to offset some of the replacement cost.

• Consideration Re: A motion to waive competitive bidding requirements and to authorize the purchase of John Deere 5090 E Cab MFWD utility tractor from AHW LLC, Manteno, IL for a cost of $61,305.64 (This is a State bid contract). Every year Public Works evaluates their equipment to determine what needs replacing. This 2004 tractor needs replacing for the department to continue to provide services that this equipment is used for. This was a budgeted replacement.

• Consideration Re: A motion to waive competitive bidding requirements and to authorize the purchase of two (2) Kubota ZD1211 60" riding mower from Martin Implement, Orland Park, IL for a cost of $13,435.04 each. (This is a Sourcewell bid price) Public Works needs to replace these two riding mowers to continue to keep Village properties properly groomed. Due to the extensive amount of mowing needed all summer, it is imperative we keep mowing equipment in good working order. These replacements were budgeted for this fiscal year.

Parks and Recreation- Trustee Martin

Nothing on the agenda tonight

Next Parks and Recreation meeting Wed March 3rd, 2019 7:00 pm Village Board Room

Public Safety and Health- Trustee Dole

Nothing on the agenda tonight.

Trustee Dole covered new legislation that will make marijuana legal in Illinois on January 1st, 2020 and the common questions around this new legislation. Chief Swinford added that the new legislation is more restrictive than what is thought.

Holiday season brings about concerns with safety in the home, so Trustee Dole covered tips for homeowners during this holiday season to keep safe. Residents can call our Fire Department at 815-468-7100 and set up an appointment to have a free safety walk through of their house.

The Village had a camera on the I57 overpass that we were using on a trial basis and was recently removed. We still have the original two cameras in place. This was a new type that we were testing.

Reminding the residents that when we do snow plowing, please park your car on the odd side (based on house numbers) of the street on odd days and park on the even side of the street on even days
