Message From the Mayor
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
As our 2012 audit continues we are excited to report that indeed our 2012 surplus will reach the thousands, a far cry from the huge deficit of a few short years ago. The purchase of a dump truck and pavement grinder to improve the efficiency and finished product of our own street reconstruction efforts is underway. We are considering the addition of a salt dome to protect a valuable asset and avoid high storage fees.
We continue to save for the total replacement of our lift-stations; anticipating their obsolescence rather than reacting to a situation where the replacement becomes an unexpected emergency.
Street projects are at the top of our to-do list and we are anxiously anticipating the Federally-funded reconstruction of Frontage Road that has already commenced with the performing of engineering and soil borings, etc... We expect the ambitious million-dollar project will be performed in early 2014. We plan to repave and/or reconstruct a minimum of six residential streets this construction year.
I am excited to welcome Henry Oszakiewski to the village board. His extensive experience on the Zoning & Planning Commission is sure to serve us well, especially with economic development initiatives. Outgoing Trustee, Kinga Bartoszek has served the village with distinction and I wish her the very best in all future endeavors. I expect she will remain active in the community as she devotes much of her time to obtaining an MBA.
On a personal note, I sincerely try to bring my unique perspective of a small business owner, a homeowner and an investor to the day to day operation of the Village of Justice. I will make every effort to be worthy of the confidence that you, my friends and neighbors have shown in me. I promise to do my very best to continue to earn the trust and respect of the people at whose pleasure I serve.
Krzysztof (Kris) Wasowicz
