9. PRESIDENT’S REPORT

President Pro Tempore Camerer read a Proclamation for National Public Works Week on May 19-25, 2019.

10. QUESTION/ANSWER: PRESIDENT & TRUSTEES

Trustee Deyne asked about the plans for when the fountain in the Town Center will be operational.

Public Works Director Dan Dinges stated that they hope to have it up and running by this weekend.

Trustee Deyne thanked staff for their efforts with the Lake Michigan water supply.

Mr. Dinges stated that most residents should be noticing the difference at this point. It all gets down to use and how much water is used to get it flushed through the system. It has been online since last Thursday and they were drawing Lake Michigan water on Monday. There have been some calls on pressure changes because they changed the direction of flow and they are making tweaks there to get things leveled. They are bringing the towers up slowly so they don’t adjust the pressures too quickly.

Trustee Hopkins asked how they are doing with all of the rain we have had over the last three weeks.

Mr. Dinges stated that it is very wet everywhere and every drop that comes down has nowhere to go at this point. They are working on some backyard drainage issues with residents.

Trustee Reinke stated that he has noticed the pond at Bartlett Place (59/Apple Valley) is looking very scummy.

Mr. Dinges stated that they have been working with the forest preserve and they are drafting a letter from the Mayor to them. The issue is downstream, west of Route 59. The beavers are very busy blocking things up and that pond can’t drain. Until they could get the area to the west fixed, they can’t get them to fix their issues. It is too wet for them to do any cleanup right now.

11. TOWN HALL

Joseph Olsen, 1117 Independence Drive

Mr. Olsen stated that he was a 41 year resident of the community. He spoke about the recently reported police hazing incident. He stated that he was very concerned and had a series of questions. Do the police officers wear body cameras that would record their actions? Why did it take five years to come to light? Is the police chief out of touch with the officers so that he had no idea what occurred within his department? Why was such light punishment applied? Were the involved officers psychologically evaluated to determine their fitness toward the role of a policeman? What steps have been taken to ensure that future officers are properly evaluated prior to being hired for their fitness and ability to make good judgment calls? Why should the residents of this community feel comfortable that we aren’t setting ourselves up for a situation just like the Chicago police officer who was recently convicted of shooting down a civilian (poor judgement)? Have they looked at insurance liability in light of what has happened to make sure that the village is adequately covered given the fact that other steps have not been taken?

12. STANDING COMMITTEE REPORTS

A. BUILDING & ZONING COMMITTEE, CHAIRMAN HOPKINS

Trustee Hopkins stated that there was no report.

13. NEW BUSINESS - None

14. QUESTION/ANSWER: PRESIDENT & TRUSTEES

President Pro Tempore Camerer asked how the flower baskets were coming along.

Mr. Dinges stated that they have checked in with the nursery and they need another 7-10 days and they hope to have them up by next week.

Trustee Hopkins asked if the baskets would be the same as in past years.

Mr. Dinges stated that they are actually a little bigger and the baskets have a reservoir making them self-watering which will alleviate watering to once or twice per week.
