Interesting To Note

The permit request from the Midlothian Country Club was tabled due to concerns brought forth by Gillis regarding matters of illegal dumping and building code violations.  Gillis stated that he believed the Club should be in compliance with local laws before issuing the permit.  The Board unanimously agreed to table the matter for further discussion.

More details about the lease agreement with the Park District for Raday Lodge were discussed.  It appears that the Park District has been repetitively making repairs to the building without notifying the Village or requesting the Village to fix it and the question of whether or not the Village should still hold onto the property was briefly touched upon.

Rybak announced that DriveTime was requesting an additional 30 days and was interested in leasing the property from the Village rather than buying it.  Phase I and Phase II EPA studies were already conducted and contractors have already submitted their information to DriveTime.

After Rybak had announced McGladrey and Pullen have not finished the audit yet, Gillis stated he wants the public to know how the company has been treating the Village and that there needs to be a deadline set.  Killelea suggested 2 weeks.
