New striping for police cars
The Village Board at Tuesday’s Committee of the Whole meeting discussed new striping for the police vehicles. The cost for the change in the graphic design is $75 per vehicle more than the current design because more reflective material is needed. The total cost for the new design would be $595 per vehicle. The Village Board will vote on the change at a future board meeting.

Division Drive extension
With the Municipal Drive and Galena Boulevard extension project nearing completion, the Village Board at Tuesday’s Committee of the Whole meeting discussed the extension of Division Drive to meet Galena Boulevard.

Village officials consider the connection an important link in preparing for future commercial growth, because it would allow additional access to future commercial properties along Galena Boulevard and Park Avenue.

The Prairie Grove Commons developer will pay for construction costs for the extension, according to the annexation agreement with the village. The total cost for the project is estimated at $193,929. Village staff recommended that bond money for the Municipal Drive and Galena Boulevard project be used for the construction, with the developer reimbursing the village when development begins.
