VILLAGE OF HILLCREST

Wednesday June 21, 2017

Budget Workshop

6:30pm

 

The Budget Workshop for the Village of Hillcrest was opened with the pledge of Allegiance. Present and answering roll call were Trustees Jeanie Sparacino, Pamela Pittman, Rich Elliott, and Randy Salsbury. Also present were President Steve Dodson, Treasurer Penny Payton, and Village Clerk Patty Moreno. Trustees Jason Fore and Tim Ball were not present.

 

President Dodson stated that the reason for this meeting is to discuss the budget for fiscal year 2018. Treasurer Payton stated that in working on the budget she noticed that the revenues that the Village took in for garbage and recycling did not match the money going out and it should be a flow through what goes out should come in and they should balance. Treasurer Payton stated that in researching this she and Village Clerk Patty Moreno found out that Northern Illinois disposal is charging for more units then the units that are being serviced. Treasurer Payton stated that Northern Disposal is charging for 425 units and the Village only bills for 409 at this time. Treasurer Payton stated that it states in the contract that this can be amended at any time but does not state who can amended and how often it can be amended also in the contract it states that the Village should have a performance bond for $100,000.00 and there is nothing on file. The board decided that the units being billed be amended to 412.

 

President Dodson stated that he would like to add $1,000.00 to his budget for community events.

 

Chief Danny White stated that he is in need of an upgrade on his computer for the squad car to match the new software system that needs to be upgraded. Chief White stated that he could get a refurbished computer and he is already on the lookout for one. Chief White thinks that a budget of $2,000.00 would be sufficient to cover all his equipment needs and installation.

 

A motion was made by Trustee Sparacino, seconded by Trustee Elliott to approve the purchase of a computer for the squad car in the amount of $2,000.00. Roll call vote: Sparacino; yes, Pittman; yes, Elliott; yes, Salsbury; yes. Motion carried.

 

The board discussed and looked at other department’s budget except Streets & Grounds and Economic & Community Development due to Trustee Fore and Ball’s absence. Purchase of Automatic Flushers was also discussed and purchase of water meters.

 

A motion to go into Executive Session was made at 7:38pm by Trustee Sparacino, seconded by Trustee Salsbury to discuss personnel and pending litigation. Roll call vote: Sparacino; yes, Pittman; yes, Elliott; yes, Salsbury; yes. Motion carried.
