The Utilities Commission is responsible for oversight of the Village's Storm Water Drainage and Sewer Utility Districts and consists of two Village Trustees and three (3) citizen members. The Commission elects its own President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Utilities Commission meetings are typically held on the fourth Thursday of each month.
The Commission utilizes various public works/engineering staff to provide technical assistance to the Utilities by reviewing and approving developmental projects, reviewing and approving Utility policies and standards and facilitating day-to-day activities, ensuring that all storm water management and sanitary sewer standards and specifications are being enforced in compliance with state and local guidelines and statutory requirements.
The Commission also reviews day-to-day citizen/property owner concerns related to storm water management and the sanitary sewer system and authorizes the corrective action when necessary.
