Don Rhodes, Laberge Group, discussed the Palmer Avenue Project with the Board.  Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) has requested the Village submit a new project funding application for this part of the Infrastructure Project.  This was unexpected since the Village requested an extension of the closing on the current funding application and cited the Palmer Ave Project as the reason for extension.  EFC staff has also been communicating with the Village and Laberge Group regularly on the Palmer Ave portion of the project which stemmed from the Village’s Inflow & Infiltration Study undertaken at the EFC’s suggestion.   The Board requested Mr. Rhodes submit a letter to the Board with all options of awarding or rejecting Palmer Ave Project bids for their consideration and action at the April 6 meeting.




Motion by Mayor Pasquarell, seconded by Trustee Coltrain, that Board adjourn, 6:55 PM.         
Carried – 3 – 0
