I.           RESOLUTIONS:

1.      Discussion and possible action on approving R-08-2017 – Preliminary Resolution Declaring Intent to Levy Special Assessments under Municipal (Police) Power. (Indiana Ave – Lakeshore South) Nick explained the assessment process for new construction that is part of the reconstruction of Minnesota Ave. and Indiana Ave this summer. The question and the reason residents are attending this meeting is whether sidewalks are necessary on the Indiana Ave. reconstruction. The residents don’t feel sidewalks are necessary on this stretch of street. Staff agrees with them. Russ Pont addressed the board indicating he did not feel they were necessary. There are few people walking in this area. Jeff Will also addressed the board. He did not feel sidewalks were necessary but also wanted to make sure his truck repair business was not impacted by the construction. He felt he needed adequate driveway width for large heavy trucks to enter his business. He also asked if there is limited access during the construction that it would be better early in the week when he doesn’t have as much traffic. Nick responded to his requests by saying he would work very close with him and that there is village staff on the job location during the construction to ensure there is open communication with the residents. Nick was asked what type of curb was designed for the project. Nick indicated it would be a standard curb based on the type of traffic on this portion of the street. Mike Will asked if the entire project will be assessed. Nick said that the cost of the project for home owners’ abutting the street will be fully assessed. Mike Will asked if the board elects to not put in sidewalk now, can it be put in the future. Nick said that installation of a sidewalk will be designed into the project and can put in later. A motion was made by John Duffy with a second by Keith King to approve R-08-2017 with the language stating that a sidewalk will not be installed. All ayes.

2.      Discussion and possible action on approving R-09-2017 – Preliminary Resolution Declaring Intent to Levy Special Assessments under Municipal (Police) Power. (Minnesota Ave.) Nick stated that a meeting was held for residents impacted by the Minnesota Ave. reconstruction project. Mike Streetar asked how many residents came to the meeting. Nick estimated at around 18 which was a very good turnout. John Duffy asked about property along the reconstruction area that is still in the Town of Friendship. Nick said the properties not in the Village will incur a deferred assessment and will be on our books as deferred revenue. Once they annex into the village, the assessment will be due to be paid. A motion was made by Mike Streetar with a second by Keith King to approve R-09-2017. All ayes.

J.          ORDINANCES:

1.      Ordinance change to Chapter 16 of the Village Ordinance O-2017-02 – Parking Regulations. First Reading.
