Issue: Recommended Maintenance Of Roads.

Option:(1) Do Nothing Different. Village Roads Continue To Deteriorate. o After Bridges, Parking Lots, Snow Removal and Signs, only enough money left to properly maintain 42K lineal feet of road (less than ½ of thoroughfare roads) o Unable to maintain any non thoroughfare roads o Checker, Cuba, Indian Creek, Long Grove Road, N. Kruger, Old Hicks & Robert Coffin Rd (highest Avg Daily Traffic count) would consume all remaining budget. Deferred Maintenance Increases Long-term Rebuilding Costs thru destruction of base. Village looks shoddy and poorly maintained.
HOA Presidents Road Maintenance Presentation Option:(2) Further Reduce Other Expenses. Total Village Budget = 2.6M. Village Board Has Reduced Expenditures. Further Reductions Will Impact Services o Staff (FTE) Expenses = $540K o Police (Sheriff) Expenses = $500K Village of
