Dundee taxes going up, water surcharge added

DUNDEE--The Dundee Village board approved a $1.27 million budget for 2017-2018 at their board meeting Tuesday, April 11. The village has chosen to go over the tax cap $16,653 which equals a 3 percent increase in the tax levy. The current tax cap is 1.38 percent.
The overage amount will be spent as follows: The Youth Program, $3,764, maintenance to the historical society building, $4,000, sidewalk replacement, $8,000 and additional increases of $889.
The change means an increase of $36 per year for a home costing $100,000, said Dundee Mayor Fred Cratsley or an extra $3 per month. He said they had tried to stay within the cap but found it impossible this year.
A public meeting regarding the tax cap overage was held before the board meeting. No public comments were made.
The village board set a goal to pave .67 miles of road every year so that the entire village will be paved in a span of 10 years. The following streets are slated for paving plus stone and oil: Bell Street, Franklin Street, Grace Street and Spring Street. Hillcrest Street will get only stone and oil. These streets follow the planned route of the water main project set to begin in a few weeks.
A new sidewalk is also planned at the municipal building/fire house.
All new sidewalks must be compliant with regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). One side of the road must have five-foot-wide sidewalks, cast iron embedded detectable warning units and painted crosswalks at intersections. The village plans to do the sidewalk as a whole block section.
Costs for sidewalk will be paid by the village rather than homeowners as was previously the case.
The board also approved a water surcharge to help offset the costs of the water main project. The surcharge will be added to the quarterly village water bill beginning in August.
The monthly user rates for water and sewer will remain the same.
The mayor reported the village has only one debt for the water tower project. A new debt is about to begin to cover the costs of the water main project.
