The Village received the CPI for the prior calendar which was 1.7% for 2012. This is a little lower than the typical 3 to 5-year average which usually runs 2.1/2.2%.

In December, the Village filed the 2012 disclosure for outstanding bonds. Standard & Poors had some positive things to say in terms of where the village is financially.

Departmental/Finance Reports for December went out last week.

The draft budget will be presented to the Board at the end of March. A tentative Finance Committee meeting will be held on March 11th to discuss the budget.

The Village will be providing all residents with the option to receive their water bills by email. Information will be provided to the residents in the next newsletter.

B. Community Development – Mike Toth said he would be meeting with CMAP in March to start off the Comp Plan with the neighboring communities for the housing plan and for the comprehensive plan. There are some text amendments with subsequent special uses on the docket for the next few months.

Nancy Garrity is celebrating her 17th year with the Village on Wednesday.
