Message From the Mayor
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Our Village is beginning the New Year on a strong and healthy financial foundation. We are actively pursuing Grant Funding promised to us by our State legislators but yet unpaid, to perform much needed street and drainage improvements.
Regardless of how quickly our grants become available, 2014 will be a significant year of improvements and initiatives. The reconfiguration of the intersection at 86th Avenue, 75th Street and Archer Road, in cooperation with Indian Springs School District 109, will provide a safer, more efficient intersection for commuters, school busses and pedestrians as well. We are actively pursuing funding for sidewalks to allow for safer passage for student walkers.
Frontage Road reconstruction is scheduled to commence in late spring with the funding from the Surface Transportation Program. Design engineering is already underway.
Public Works has been newly equipped with a trailer-mounted jet-rodder and a new dump truck to better serve our residents. Finally, our equipment is being updated as necessary for more efficient performance.
We continue to seek favorable economic development in our community in order to increase our tax base and allow our residents to spend more of their hard-earned dollars in their own hometown. Our carefully selected, and professionally trained Economic Development Commission is sure to provide the catalyst we need to succeed.
Truly, I wish for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year in 2014, for each and every one of you.
Krzysztof (Kris) Wasowicz
