Just a quick “heads up” that the Village of Wilmette has posted the proposed budget for 2016, and will hold a 2016 Budget Workshop this Thursday, October 29, from 7PM to 8PM. The public is welcome to attend and comment.
Sewer upgrades, maintenance, and fees will be reviewed. Some good news is that the West Park Storage Project will be completed in 2016 within (or slightly under) budget. Westside residents should gain major protection from sewage backups as a result.
The westside separate storm sewer is not on the agenda. (The 2026 budget documents show that the village spent $322,580 on separate storm sewer studies in 2014-15, with no additional spending proposed for 2016 and beyond.)
