Incident plan will
reflect national standards

MAPLE PARK—The Village of Maple Park will establish an incident plan that adopts the standard procedures of the National Incident Management System.

Maple Park’s fire and police chiefs will develop the plan, Village President Kathy Curtis said Monday. Having the plan will allow the village to be eligible for federal incident management grants for streamlining management of emergency personnel, communications, facilities and resources.

NIMS is a federal initiative to improve the readiness of government agencies on the state, local and national level to address potential terrorist threats.

Board will discuss Kaneland request
MAPLE PARK—The Maple Park Village Board will discuss whether to renew an intergovernmental agreement with Kaneland School District at the village’s next Committee of the Whole meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, March 15.

District Superintendent Charles McCormick has asked all Kaneland villages to renew their four-year agreement with the district to provide developer impact fees to the schools.

Village officials cited the changing housing market and the differences in development among the Kaneland communities as reasons for wanting to study the issue further before making a decision.
