The Public Works Department’s Engineering Division is the primary technical resource for the Village in matters of public infrastructure.  The Engineering Division maintains records of public improvements, develops long-term capital budgets for water, sewer and street infrastructure and coordinates project design and construction. The Engineering Division is staffed by a Professional Engineer, a Civil Engineer, and a Utilities Inspector.

The Village has a number of construction projects in progress or planned at any given time. Review the links below for updates on current construction projects and information on upcoming projects.
Street Program
The Village roadway network consists of 86 miles of collector and local streets and one mile of alleys constructed primarily of concrete and asphalt.  Since 2001 rehabilitation of Village roadways has been guided by a program recommended by the volunteer-led Capital Improvements Commission and approved by the Village Board.  The overall goal of the program is to systematically and cost-effectively rehabilitates the roadway network so that all streets are in continuously good condition.

Proposed improvements have now been developed and detailed for the 2013-2022 calendar year timeframe.  The program planned reconstruction and resurfacing improvements to over 27 miles of roads at an estimated total cost of $54 million in Capital Project Fund monies over the next 10 year period.  Pavement preservation techniques will be implemented annually on a staff-selected basis, with planned aggregated expenditures for maintenance of asphalt and concrete roadways on the order of $400,000 per year.

Program improvements to-date have been funded primarily by a combination of $18 million in bonds approved in the November 2000 general election, utility taxes, real estate transfer taxes and cash reserves.  In 2008, the Village Board approved extending property taxes originally designated to pay off debt to help fund ongoing program improvements as bonds are retired over the next six years.
