Mayor Sandack announced that the Village has provided local State Representatives and Senators with a list of Construction Ready Capital Projects. The Mayor and Village Council want to make sure that the Village is well positioned to obtain funding for projects within its Community Investment Program (CIP).
“If funding for capital projects is included as part of a federal economic stimulus package, the Village is prepared to use those dollars wisely on vital infrastructure improvements,” stated Mayor Sandack.
The CIP includes essential projects to improve public infrastructure. These improvements depend on revenue generated from local sales and property taxes. It is difficult to guarantee completion of these projects given the impact the current economic climate is having on these revenue sources.
The Construction Ready Capital Projects document forwarded to legislators lists eight,high-priority projects that the Village believes should receive state and federal funding. These projects include roadway resurfacing, water main replacements, stormwater improvements, and sidewalk installations throughout the Village.
