Kaneville looks forward to 2014

By on January 1, 2014

KANEVILLE—Kaneville Village President Pat Hill’s list of goals for 2014 are straightforward and to the point. There are road improvements she would like to complete this next year, concerning the resurfacing of Merrill Avenue and Lovell Road in Kaneville.

Hill also plans on continuing to fix the problem with water flowing into ditches from the Ravlin subdivision, located on the southwest portion of Kaneville. She plans to monitor the situation throughout the year, as well, and repair drainage ditches as needed.

One of Hill’s biggest accomplishments for 2013 was saving the post office from closing in town, and now for 2014, one of her goals will be maintaining the revenue of the post office to keep the store in business.

“The post office is a vital part of our community. We cannot lose it,” she said.

Town events and community camaraderie are among Hill’s goals for 2014 The Firemen’s Pancake Breakfast, Firemen’s Draw Down and Kaneville Fest, as well as fundraisers in the spring and fall (for the village’s “Cruise Night” and movie nights) are a few of the events that Kaneville has on its schedule for the year ahead.
