Garfield Street Grant Application Update

I am disappointed to report that Burr Ridge was not awarded grant funds for reconstruction of Garfield Street.  As has been previously reported, the Village has long desired to convert Garfield Street to an updated curb and gutter design, which would require a full reconstruction.  The Village had previously been awarded funds for resurfacing Garfield Street, but we have deferred that project in favor of the preferred reconstruction alternative.  This year, the competition for roadway funds in DuPage County was particularly competitive; $40M in applications were received, and only $8.7 in funds were available.

Now that the grant award list has been released, staff will begin to assemble documents for the resurfacing alternative.  The roadway will be patched this October to stabilize it for the winter, followed by full resurfacing in summer 2015 or 2016, depending upon programming of the grant funds.  This matter will be presented to the Street Policy Committee in December.

Board Goals/Priorities

The final list of strategic priorities and goals established at the October 13 workshop is available for review at the Village Hall. We will begin immediately to work toward addressing these goals.

Pre-Construction Notice for Resurfacing Route 83

The Village received a pre-construction notice from the Illinois Department of Transportation indicating that they have awarded a contract to Central Blacktop Co., Inc., to resurface Route 83, from the Cook County line to Knollwood Road, within the Villages of Willowbrook and Burr Ridge and the City of Darien in DuPage County. Work will begin in April 2015 and the estimated completion date is October 2015.

Financial Information Reports – September 2014

The summary of the Financial Information Reports for the month of September 2014, prepared by Finance Director Jerry Sapp and Assistant Finance Director Lynette Zurawski, is available for review at the Village Hall.

Tax Revenue Breakdown

A chart showing the breakdown of Sales Tax (through July 2014), Hotel/Motel Tax and Place-of-Eating Tax revenues for each fiscal year from 2010-11 through August 2014 is available for review at the Village Hall.

Comcast Programming and Pricing Changes
