CALL TO ORDER

Also present were: President Jack Riley, Administrator/Clerk-Treasurer Debra Michael, Planner Henry Elling, Chief Michael Hartert and DPW Lead Person Bill Miller.

President Riley ANNOUNCED EXECUTIVE SESSION stating that the Village Board may convene into Executive Session pursuant to: Section 19.85(1)(c) Considering employment, promotion, compensation or performance evaluation data of any public employee over which the governmental body has jurisdiction or exercises responsibility – job offer for Public Works Superintendent position

PUBLIC COMMENT

Mike Nevins, 849 N Pointview Road – has lived here many years and fortunate to participate in Village Board and Plan Commission meetings. Common threads about development show when residents come out and state that they want the Village to stay rural. He doesn’t believe we need a downtown, four lane roads or gas stations. We like the rural character and that rural character is described in the Master Plan. Compliments the amount of effort the groups put into listening to the residents, that is appreciated.

PUBLIC HEARING

President Riley announced the Public Hearing on the proposed 2020 Village of Summit budget. Administrator-Clerk/Treasurer Michael presented an overview of the 2020 summary budget (attached). Public Comments:

Brian Porter, 37500 Stillwater Drive – over $1,000,000 that is unallocated and interested in the board’s perspective about use of that to pay down the debt as opposed to borrowing. President Riley responded that the Village has a policy of a percentage that they need to keep in that fund and we need a certain amount to operate but we also don’t want a ton of money sitting in there and this year for example instead of borrowing, we took the money out of the general fund and paid for the capital items. With a balance this high we will probably consider doing that again and an analysis will be done prior to making that decision.

Mike Nevins, 849 N Pointview Road – how did we miss our 2019 budget by so much. President Riley stated we don’t anticipate all the development, so a majority of the excess is from the building permits for Lake Country Village. We want to be conservative with the budget so we only estimate a portion of the available lots and that particular development has had an accelerated phasing. Mr. Nevins asked about the debt service and if we go back and renegotiate those rates. President Riley explained we use the State’s Board of Commissioners of Public Lands State Trust Fund Loans and Administrator Michael explained that we do research rates with local banks and use our financial advisor to help make this decision.

Nate Rice, 3783 Valley Road – with the additional money in unallocated funds he would like the Village to consider a speed sign for Valley Road, the speeding is out of control along that road. Thank the Police Department for the ongoing radar patrol on Valley Road.

Closed the Public Hearing at 6:58 pm.

Trustee Casterline thinks we should craft it another way using the multiplier if we leave it as bi-weekly payroll.

President Riley stated it would be easier if we changed to bi-monthly pay dates on the 1st and 15th of the month.

MOTION: (Casterline, Riley) to appoint Lisa Mellone to the remainder of the term until May 2023 to the Police Commission open seat.
