Items of interest from Village staff and the October 21 Board meeting

  • Village Engineer Chuck Hunsinger sat back one row from his usual spot during the board meeting on Oct. 21, which put him in the first row of seating for the public. The reason was simple: Hunsinger was making room for his colleague, David Harp, to take over his duties. Hunsinger plans to retire in January and is giving Harp some on-the-job training over the next couple of months. Both men are employed by Bainbridge, Gee, Milanski and Associates, Inc.

  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni noted in his report to the board on Oct. 21 that fencing on the Hundley Road and Weaver Road bridges is being replaced because of excessive fading. The replacement work is being done under warranty at no cost to the village.

  • Coloni attended the 12th annual Illinois Public Service Institute in Effingham the first week of October. He described it as a top leadership-training institute attended by more than 150 students. The institute, which meets for one week each year, requires that a student attend for three years before graduating. Each year covers a different topic, ranging from supervisory skills to leadership and service skills. Coloni participates every year as a member of the advisory committee.
  • A new full-time employee who was not aware of the waiting period for health insurance faced COBRA payments for he and his dependents of about $1,300 per month. The board passed a motion to reimburse Bart Cochran for two months of coverage.
