The Budget Workshop for the Village of Hillcrest was opened with the Pledge of Allegiance.

Also present were President Kim Whalen, Attorney Paul Keller, and Village Clerk Patty Moreno. Treasurer Penny Payton was absent.

Budget Workshop
President Whalen stated that due to lack of internet today she would like to ask the board members if they are available for next Wednesday August 6, 2014 to review and discuss the budget for fiscal year 2014-2015. The board all agreed to meet on August 6, 2014 to discuss budget for FY2015. Attorney Paul Keller stated that he would not be available to attend meeting.

MFT Recommendation
President Whalen stated that she would like to do any road repair until next spring this will allow the Village to know where the sewer project will begin and not repair roads that will be damaged in the sewer project. President Whalen and Trustee Sparacino stated that they could possibly use the Motor Fuel Tax funds that were not spent in the 2014 Street Maintenance in building a new salt shed. The amount that was appropriated and not spent in the 2014 Street Maintenance was in the amount of $35,000.00. Trustee Sparacino stated that this would be a way of not having to pay for storage of salt not used in the winter. There was discussion on where the salt shed would be build and what type of materials the shed would be made of. It was agreed by the board that they would discuss the salt shed at the next Budget Workshop.
