Mayor Gerry Daley

Water Tower and Reservoir Repair
The engineering contracts have been let.  Start date is TBA.
6/9/21–No update as of yet.  It will be done this summer.
9/22/21–Proposals have come in that were higher than expected.  We will seek new proposals this winter with the hope of performing the work this upcoming spring.
1/18/22–Bids were opened today for this project.  The low bid should be approved at the January 25th Board Meeting.

Village Wide Tree Trimming and Removal
3/18/21–Easement trees will be trimmed as needed throughout the Village.  Also planned is the removal of numerous dead trees that border our various wetlands.
4/29/21–The tree trimming and removal of dangerous trees will begin this month weather permitting.
6/9/21–The crew has been working on tree removal along the edges of the wetlands.
8/17/21–The majority of this work is done.
1/18/22–Some tree trimming and removal will be accomplished during the winter months.

Public Works Well
4/30/20–Currently the Village has two wells that provide water to the entire Village.  Neither well can, by itself, provide adequate flow to meet the Village’s needs.  So we will be reviewing numerous options that, in the end, will provide us with more than sufficient water supply.
3/18/21–Upon further review of the options and the goal I want to obtain, We are again looking into a standalone well.  We abandoned the idea of adding a new well hole at our two current sites because of the possibility of the equipment that would serve both well holes failing.  If that were to happen, we would still be depending on only one service point.  My goal for this project is to always have two service points available to the Village.
6/9/21–Figures are being put together now.  Once we have an accurate cost estimate we can start discussing financing options.
8/17/21–The figures are in and are now being fine tuned.  My goal is to establish a fourth well as economically as possible.
9/22/21–The Village Board will hear a presentation on this topic during the October Board meeting.  It is my hope that the Board will approve the project at the November meeting.
10/27/21–This presentation has been rescheduled to the November 16th meeting with the approval vote (if accepted) at the December meeting.
1/18/22–Additional water testing was needed to determine the iron level in the water.  Test results, which are forthcoming, will determine the next steps.
