Before the village votes on next year's budget, residents will get the chance to sound off during a public hearing, set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, at Village Hall, 100 Parkers Mill.

Following the hearing, trustees will vote on the proposed $29.3 budget, which can be viewed on the village website.

Anyone who wants to present testimony at the hearing should contact village clerk Tina Touchette at 630-554-3618.

Prior to the hearing, the village's committee of the whole is slated to meet at 6 p.m. to discuss some proposed changes to the budget. Trustee Terry Michels has asked fellow board members to consider several reductions, including eliminating the $100,000 line item for Town Center engineering, and transferring $40,000 to the general fund and $60,000 to the water/sewer fund.

Michels is also proposing slashing emerald ash borer tree replacement expenditures by $50,000 and eliminating a $50,000 financial software consultant expense. 

The committee will also address a request to increase a contribution to the Osewgo Senior Center from $35,000 to $38,500.
