At the recommendation of the Public Works Committee, the Village Board on Tuesday approved moving forward with the first phase of the village engineer's post-storm analysis and recommendations related to the July 22 heavy rainfall.
Thirteen locations are designated for repairs, including areas on Steeple, Squire, Oxford, Lakeview, Root River, Horizon, Hillridge and Midland drives, Sussex and Greenhill lanes, Gardenway and Eastway, west of 51st Street. The estimated cost for Phase I improvements, to begin in 2010, is $119,450, paid for with funds in the village's stormwater utility.
Phase II of the plan would address construction of various drainage improvements, likely during the 2011 construction season. The estimated cost for those improvements is $982,350. The most substantial improvements are proposed for the Root River Drive neighborhood, with a recommendation to complete a flood improvement project at a cost of $900,000.
The event included a balloon launch and ice cream social.

The group, directed by Katie Petersen, will appear on March 15, 2010. The concert will take place in the State Capitol Rotunda from 12 - 1 p.m.
Capitol Concerts are a series of student performances coordinated by the WMEA in celebration of Music In Our Schools Month, a time when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation. School music groups from around the state are chosen to participate in the annual WMEA program.
"These concerts bring together two of Wisconsin's great treasures - the State Capitol and our talented young citizens," said Kevin Thays, WMEA director of communications. "The concerts share the accomplishments of school music groups and emphasize the very important place of music in our schools and communities."
This phase of the renovation is expected to be completed by May 1, 2010. Additional work will be needed to finish restoration.
