For the second year in a row, there will be no dipping into village reserves to pay to run the village of Channahon, its finance director says.
Bob Guess recently presented a portion of his proposed budget to trustees for their feedback.
He will give the second half of his presentation at the March 18 board meeting.
Expenditures for the 2013-2014 fiscal year could include replacement of three squad cars; replacement of all police in-car computers; purchase of a new administration/development vehicle; purchase of three replacement trucks and one utility truck; replacement of 12 computers, server upgrades and six tablets for the police department; new village signage in collaboration with the park district; and completion of the Route 6/Interstate 55 TIF study.
Channahon may also seek major repairs to two of the village’s trucks; purchase a Mud jacking system for sidewalk repairs and a striping machine for roadways; perform bike path maintenance; upgrade the Jessup Street building; and budget work for the Memorial Tree Walk.
There are no additional staffing requests in the proposed budget.
