We'd Like to See You at the Upcoming Budget Hearings in September! 

The Village Council is "supposedly" in recess during August; but that is not quite so!  While there are no regular Council meetings scheduled during this month, your Council and Staff has been hard at work putting together the upcoming annual budget.  

Budget workshops were held during the past couple of months to gather resident feedback on their priority items.  Based on this information, Staff & Council is developing a capital and operating budget for the Village for the start of the new fiscal year on October 1st.  


A proposed budget will soon be posted on the Village website for residents to review and two budget hearings will be held in September for final public and Council recommendations.  During the hearings, residents will have another opportunity to chime in and comment on budgetary items.  

The first budget hearing is scheduled for September 11th.  The final budget is expected to be adopted by the Council at the end of the 2nd budget hearing on September 25th. Visit our website for more details.
