Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Elk Grove Village approved plans this week for a $10 million loan to kick-start work on a new public works building and fire station, which are major parts of a long-term infrastructure overhaul in the community.

Trustees voted unanimously to authorize the village to take out the loan to acquire land and perform architectural and engineering for the projects. The money will also fund remodeling at village hall, road improvements, pedestrian paths and street lighting.

In February, the village unveiled the eight-year, $105 million infrastructure plan. The village plans to also issue about $30 million in bonds, seek grant funding, and tax increases to pay for the improvements.

A resident with a $300,000 house would pay an additional $36 in village property taxes, $53 more in a natural gas tax, and $7.20 more a year in a telecommunication tax.

The new 10,000-square-foot fire station would replace and combine two current stations on Greenleaf Avenue and Oakton Street, respectively. It would be located near the Busse Road corridor. The new public works building would replace the James Petri Public Works Facility at 600 Landmeier Road.

Elk Grove Village Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Elk Grove Village Mayor Craig Johnson unveiled the outline of the largest capital works plan in the village’s history.

The plan is estimated to cost $105 million and could start within weeks. It focuses on many fronts, from a new fire station and new public works building to median enhancements and road improvement projects. Johnson said that the village is ready to apply for tens of millions of dollars in grants to cover some of the costs, and he anticipates issuing $30 million in bonds to help with the funding, with the cost to the average taxpayer an additional $96.20 per year. The resident with a $300,000 home would pay an additional $36 in village property taxes, $53 more in a natural gas tax and $7.20 more a year in a telecommunication tax.

The largest aspect of the eight-year plan is the construction of a new fire station and a new public works building. A new 10,000-square-foot fire station would replace and combine two current stations located on Greenleaf Avenue and Oakton Street. It would be located somewhere near the Busse Road corridor. The new public works building would replace the James Petri Public Works Facility at 600 Landmeier Road.

And this from Scott Peterson:

Sta 10 on Meacham Rd will be torn down and a new Station built on the same site. They will relocate to the west side public works garage when the project starts. No timeline yet but the Sta 10 project is supposed to be started by fall of 2017 latest and maybe sooner.
