Chief Ullrich stated that they will take a look at that and see what they can come up with.

11. TOWN HALL

Grace Gabrenya, 953 Baytree Drive

Ms. Gabrenya stated that she was eleven years old and in the sixth grade. She has a love for animals and was here to inform the board about puppy mills. She stated that they are a cruel place where dogs are forcefully bred. The dogs that are used for breeding are usually sick, abused or injured. The puppies that come from the sick parents may seem cute but on the inside may be full of diseases and are less energetic than most puppies. After a person finds out that a puppy that they paid thousands of dollars for is sick and will cost thousands more in vet bills, they abandone the sick puppies to an overcrowded shelter which will later result in even more problems. Puppy mills can be anywhere. There are also bigger industries that breed dogs that are also puppy mills. There are puppy mills that are legal but need a license. Puppy mills sell puppies to pet stores and you see those little cuties in the windows. She was there to inform everyone today to purchase a dog from a breeder instead of a pet store. Breeders have a higher reputation and can help you know what the health of the puppies will be. Chicago is one of the towns that have made puppy mills illegal and she would like to see Bartlett do the same so that the mills may one day stop for the sake of man’s best friend. She would like the board to consider an ordinance to keep dogs from puppy mills from being sold in Bartlett and to insure that dogs in Bartlett are bred in a professional and humane environment.

George Koziol, 654 Hazelnut Court

Mr. Koziol stated that he was happy to have this opportunity to speak at today’s town hall. He thanked the mayor for the honor and privilege of serving on the Bartlett Zoning Board of Appeals for the past seventeen years. He thanked him for recognizing him this evening and allowing him to serve another five years.

Terry Pearson, 1178 Foxboro Lane

Mr. Pearson stated that he wanted to talk about Route 59 and Stearns. As he was driving tonight, he counted four lanes of traffic when you come out of Walgreens to turn right or left. He thought it was way too many lanes and asked if the intersection was going to be all right turns.

Public Works Director Dan Dinges stated that it is the east leg of Stearns by Walgreens. Once the work is completely done, there will be a raised median from Route 59 to the driveway, prohibiting eastbound to northbound left turns exiting the Walgreens. We will be able to turn left on non-peak times.

Mr. Pearson asked if they were heading eastbound and wanted to turn into Walgreens, instead of waiting for the arrow to go down Route 59 and turn right to come in, people are going to cross a double yellow line. He felt that something must be done. He felt that a police officer should be issuing tickets. He asked about the construction on Route 59 and Army Trail and asked what was going to be done.

Mr. Dinges stated that they will be adding dual left turns, southbound to eastbound and dual lefts going north to west on Army Trail.

Mr. Pearson asked if these road improvements are publicized anywhere.

President Wallace stated that they had Board and Committee meetings two years ago on this.

Mr. Dinges stated that he would look into putting something on the website. He stated that work will begin again at Route 59 and Stearns next week. IDOT still claims that it will be completed by the fall.

Ken Murawski, 1186 Lynfield Lane

Mr. Murawski asked if the Village is completely on Chicago water and asked why he still needs a water softener.

President Wallace stated that there is still calcium in the water so it makes it feel a little harder. There is no more iron or hardened substances.

Mr. Dinges stated that the water is not completely soft because it is more helpful to the pipelines. The water hardness is about eight grains. It is all a matter of preference and he recommended trying to go without the softener.

Mr. Murawski stated that his wife bleaches her hair and she could tell that the water is not soft.

Andrew Lazzara, 1179 Foxboro Court

Mr. Lazzara stated that he has a problem with residents trying to turn onto Brewster at Foxboro. Someone recently came up on his lawn and he suggested a stop sign or a speed bump - plus there is a bus stop there.

President Wallace asked Chief Ullrich to take a look at that intersection. 12. STANDING COMMITTEE REPORTS
