North Aurora resident Dave Smith was one of two speakers asking North Aurora officials questions at the North Aurora Village Board meeting Monday. Smith inquired about the $5,000 tax levy increase for the 92 homes in the Oaks Special Service area #7 in North Aurora. The money is set to repair erosion around the retention pond in the area. The amount would be an increase of approximately $55 per year. The tax levy for the Special Service Area was one of all 10 with various amounts that were approved.
• Village president Dale Berman said the recently-installed L.E.D. stoplights on Randall Road didn’t get warm and melt the snow on the light lens like the previous stoplights which led to several accidents.
• Approved was an agreement with Melrose Pyrotechnics for the July 3, 2019 fireworks. They are set to include music and be a minute or two shorter than last year.
• Approved was an ordinance prohibiting school truancy. West Aurora School District No. 129 requested the assistance of the Village Police Department in monitoring and enforcing the State truancy laws by adopting a local ordinance on truancy and enforcing the local truancy law to encourage school attendance and otherwise for the benefit of the students of District No. 129 living within jurisdictional boundaries of the Village.
