The Oswego Village Board of Trustees will be prioritizing a host of community issues at a special committee of the whole meeting called for Tuesday night.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at Village Hall. Topics for discussion include:
- Striping of village streets
- Long-term plans for bike paths (who pays and who maintains)
- Alternatives for the village’s leaf collection program
- Possible elimination of village property tax and replace it with sales tax increase or motor fuel tax
- Long-term capital improvements
- Resident requested speed bumps
- Funding options for Metra commuter
- Economic development tools (incentives such as TIF Districts)
According to a memo from Village Administrator Steve Jones, trustees will be asked to prioritize the issues as either short-term (1-3 months), mid-term (3-12 months) or long-term (1 year or longer.
“This prioritization (will) provide direction to staff as to the future incorporation of topics into the workload,” Jones said.
No votes will be taken on the above list, and the items are for discussion only.
