10. QUESTION/ANSWER: PRESIDENT & TRUSTEES

Trustee Deyne recognized the staff birthdays and anniversaries.

Trustee Hopkins stated that he continues to calls from residents on Naperville Road with the truck traffic. He is fully aware that it is a county road but asked what the Village has done to try to work with the county to ban trucks and slow down traffic on Naperville Road.

Village Administrator Paula Schumacher stated that they contacted the county transportation staff and raised their concerns about the truck traffic as well as the speed of the traffic. They asked for a complete speed study and to look at the warrants for a light at Spaulding Road. They have taken a long time to do the study but they have recently completed it. We have not received the results but were told that it was completed. Her plan is to have the village’s traffic consultant review it and see if we agree with it. We also have a meeting scheduled with the Cook County representative on July 10 to discuss this as well as some of the maintenance issues on Naperville Road.

Trustee Reinke stated that he got a lot of compliments on the shredding event. It sounded like it went very well.

13. NEW BUSINESS

Trustee Deyne stated that he considers Scott Skrycki the go-to person in this Village. When people ask him questions he calls Scott and he is always the first person to pick up the phone and gives him a direct and definitive answer. If it wasn’t for Scott he would not look very good out there. He responds to all of these calls immediately and he can call him on Saturday or Sunday and he is always there to answer his call. He thanked him from the bottom of his heart and wanted to make sure everyone knew what a great person he is and how responsible he is to the Village of Bartlett and the residents.

Trustee Hopkins asked if they would be discussing the ever-changing marijuana laws in the near future.

Administrator Schumacher stated that the Board looked at some zoning issues with medical marijuana a few years ago and looked at the parameters that they wanted to allow both for dispensaries and growing. They plan on revising that information in light of the new law of the state and it is scheduled for the Committee of the Whole on July 16.

Trustee Hopkins stated that other communities are discussing this with their Board. He asked if there was a way to get feedback from the under communities as well.

Administrator Schumacher stated that they are monitoring those discussions and the conference is also being helpful in that regard. They certainly want to address the issue before they have anything pending.

Attorney Mraz stated that the idea was to get Board direction because the new law gives you quite a bit of authority in terms of not allowing it, much more so than the medical marijuana. They can choose to ban it and if they decide to do that, it would be restricted in the zoning ordinance. There are other things they have to do in the code and he has met with the police department today to talk about amending the local ordinances with respect to possession of cannabis.

Trustee Hopkins asked if they could ask the voters opinion in a referendum question.

Attorney Mraz stated that it would take so long to get on the referendum and you would be way behind everyone else. The answer is “yes” but the way the election cycle works it would be way too many months down the road.

Trustee Deyne stated that he is still getting complaints on the brush pickup. He stated that they need to publicize something to get the message out to the residents.

Administrator Schumacher stated that they have this information on the website. In the last week, they have received a couple of calls as well as GO requests from residents who said they like the program and wondered why they were talking about changing it. She understood that change is always hard.

Public Works Director Dan Dinges stated that he has talked to his contractors that do work in town and they have given him estimates on the cost of a 4X8 pile. His staff has referrals for contractors that have done work in town and will inform the residents that they can call any contractor. He will post the estimated cost on the website.

14. QUESTION/ANSWER: PRESIDENT & TRUSTEES - None

15. ADJOURN TO EXECUTIVE SESSION

President Wallace stated that since there were no agenda items for discussion on the Committee of the Whole Agenda, the Board would be going into Executive Session to Discuss Pending or Imminent Litigation Pursuant to Section 2(c)1 of the Open Meetings Act immediately following the close of this meeting.

There being no further business to discuss, Trustee Carbonaro moved to adjourn the regular Board meeting and that motion was seconded by Trustee Deyne.

ROLL CALL VOTE TO ADJOURN

AYES: Trustees Carbonaro, Deyne, Hopkins, Reinke

NAYS: None

ABSENT: Trustees Camerer, Gabrenya
