ONCC Annual Meeting - June 5
The ONCC Annual Meeting will be held on Friday, June 5, 2020 at
8:00 a.m. via Zoom teleconferencing.

Meeting ID: 893 3055 2020
Password: 283518

During the past two months of sheltering in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ONCC standing and ad hoc committees have met through Zoom teleconferencing to continue the important work ONCC provides to our communities.

While we will not be meeting in person for the Annual Meeting, ONCC member participation will be critical to vote on and approve the following resolutions and leadership positions:

The approval of the Residential Sound Insulation Program Phase 19 Resolution is necessary to ensure that eligible homeowners are enrolled by this summer and contracts go out to bid in a timely manner. Without approval of this resolution, dwellings may not be sound insulated by the completion of the OMP in 2021.

The ad hoc Nominating Committee met and recommends the current slate of officers:

Mount Prospect Mayor Arlene Juracek—Chair
Mr. Joseph Annunzio—Vice Chair
Dr. Raymond Kuper—Treasurer

The election of officers will take place at the June 5 meeting.

The ad hoc Governance Committee will present revisions and recommendations for the current ONCC bylaws for approval and recommended changes to the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA). Recommendations for the IGA will be sent to the City of Chicago Legal Department to draft the IGA that will be in place for the next five years. Upon approval from the Chicago City Council, ONCC members will be required to renew their IGA before December 2020 in order to continue membership in the ONCC.

ONCC Treasurer Dr. Raymond Kuper has reviewed expenditures for March, April, and May. Financial statements for these months need approval.

RSIP Gearing Up for
Phase 19
CDA has hit the ground running on Phase 19 of the Residential Sound Insulation program, which will be the final phase of sound insulation under the O'Hare Modernization Program noise contour. The full ONCC is expected to approve the Phase 19 Resolution in June, authorizing work to begin. Homeowner briefings have been held, and the first group is expected to go out to bid in the 4th Quarter of 2020. All sound insulation under this noise contour must be completed by the time the final runway is completed.
