Hinsdale Village Board
Among other business Tuesdays, trustees:
• passed a resolution pausing the processing of applications to construct small wireless facilities related to 5G due to the state of emergency created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Village officials reported that no permit applications have yet been received to build 5G facilities but said the action was needed to avoid burdening a short-handed village staff.
• approved the use of $995,000 in motor fuel tax funds for the reconstruction of Eighth Street from Garfield Avenue to County Line Road. The project will also replace the 4-inch water main from Oak Street to County Line for a total cost of $1.16 million.
• approved the use of $400,000 of motor fuel tax funds to partially fund the 2021 maintenance project. Due to the budget shortfalls due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 maintenance project was deferred. Consequently the 2021 project includes the 2020 resurfacing streets. They are Third Street from Grant to Washington, Eighth Street from Jackson to Quincy, Maple Street from Monroe to Grant, Quincy Street from Eighth to Melin Park, Washington Street from Seventh to Eighth, York Road patching from Ogden to the village boundary, the Robbins parking lot and Phillippa Street from Bobolink to Minneola. The estimated total cost is $663,140.
• approved the use of $398,000 of motor fuel tax funds to partially fund the 2021 Chicago Avenue resurfacing project. The village had previously been awarded federal Surface Transportation Funds to pay for $532,000 of an estimated cost of $760,000 for the resurfacing from Garfield to Route 83. The MFT funds, which can only be used for road improvements, will cover the rest of the project — the resurfacing of Post Circle along Symonds Drive and Third Street from Grant Street to Washington Street.
• approved a salary increase for village manager Kathleen Gargano of 2.25 percent to bring her annual salary to $205,306.33. Gargano had not received a pay adjustment since 2017.
