 Approval of Minutes

Trustee Chamberlain moved to approve the minutes from the September 25, 2018 Board of Trustees meeting.  Trustee Hollander seconded the motion.  The motion passed unanimously on a voice vote.

Director of Community Services

Mr. Durning received a permit application for a house at 565 Sherry.  The design encroaches on the Hazelnut yard setback.  Mr. Zimmerman will meet with the homeowner as this could be a hardship under our zoning code based on the Woodlands Ordinance.

Plan Commission Report

The Plan Commission will meet on Thursday to continue discussions on the Comprehensive Plan.

Engineer’s Report

Mr. Glenn reported that Saunders Road is being patched.  They hope to get the surface down on Big Oak and Forest Glen.  Demolition of the property adjacent to Village Hall has been started.

Police Report

Chief Dayno presented highlights from the Police Report since the last Board of Trustees meeting.  The police report is attached to the end of the minutes.

Informational Items & Comments from the President

  • Project Update on Flatwoods Heritage Center

Mayor Norris indicated that the OSLAD grant application has been submitted and receipt has been acknowledged.  Several items that were not necessary, such as the restroom, were removed from the application. The demonstration modules have been combined based on the recommendation of the Village ecologist. These changes reduced the cost of the proposed project by approximately $100,000 to $150,000.  Trustee Hollander questioned if the residents would have access to restroom facilities in the Village Hall on weekends and when the Village Hall was closed. Mayor Norris explained that the Village was exploring that and other options, such as a porta potty, before committing to a full restroom facility.

Trustee Chamberlain has come up with a few methods to get feedback from the residents. She encouraged the Trustees to weigh in with their suggestions. Mayor Norris noted that he is also looking into ways to do market research on how to hear from more residents.

  • Report on Riverwoods and Deerfield Road Safety Path

Mayor Norris stated that this item will be continued to the next meeting.

  • Daphne Paras to serve as Assistant Village Clerk pending Resignation of Incumbent

Village Clerk Irene Gagerman introduced Ms. Paras, who will serve as the Assistant Village Clerk.  Clerk Gagerman will be resigning at the next Board of Trustees meeting.  Ms. Paras will act as the Village Clerk until the next general election.

  • Mayor Norris thanked the RPC for the successful event over the weekend.

Visitors Wishing to Address the Board

There were no residents wishing to address the Board.

New Business

  • Approval of Purchase of New Police Squad Car

Chief Dayno noted that on October 10, 2018 a squad car was struck by a motorist that was subsequently charged with DUI.  The squad car was totaled. The Village received a check from the insurance company in the amount of $34,525.  Our insurance company will subrogate the deductible amount of $1,000.

The State of Illinois bid for a Chevy Tahoe is $36,300.  Bill Stasek Chevrolet gave the Village a quote for $36,252.  Trustee Chamberlain moved to approve the purchase of a Chevy Tahoe from Bill Stasek Chevrolet in the amount of $36,252. Trustee Hollander seconded the motion.  The motion passed by the following vote:

AYES:  Chamberlain, Goldstein, Hollander, Norris (4)
