                            INVITATION TO ALL RESIDENTS
EVENT:                     TOWN HALL MEETING

WHEN:                      WEDNESDAY 7:00 PM
                           JUNE 23, 2010

                           LITTLE HOME CHURCH

Your Village President, Board of Trustees, Village Treasurer and Chief of Police cordially invite all residents to join us for
what we hope will be an informative meeting.

We are looking forward to having an open two-way forum where the Village will present a recap of its financial status and
our friends and neighbors can share their thoughts and comments as to what is important to them.

As part of the Village’s presentation, we will address the challenges of finding alternative revenue sources while maintaining
the current sources we have and will explain steps we are taking to reduce or delay expenditures.

We will also address questions we have received regarding:
        • Public vs. private roads,
        • The cost of maintaining open space and lower density housing,
        • Why property taxes are not reduced when the value of your home decreases,
        • The need for 24-hour police protection and
        • How long road resurfacing can be deferred without incurring heavy maintenance costs.
You can request other issues to be addressed at this meeting by emailing questions to our Village Clerk at
clerk@villageofwayne.org or by calling Village Hall (630-584-3090).

As you are all aware, the Village of Wayne, like many other municipalities, is experiencing a reduction in revenues while
trying to maintain currently provided municipal services. The dictionary says a “dilemma” applies to a choice between
evenly balanced alternatives, most often unattractive ones. Well – your elected officials have a “dilemma” and we need your
input in addressing it.

Therefore, we will also discuss our logic for asking for an increase in tax revenues by referendum last February and talk
about cost reductions considered but not yet implemented. These are related issues we particularly want your input on, espe-
cially if you voted against the tax increase. It would be very helpful if each Homeowner Association or area within the Vil-
lage sends a representative to the meeting for this discussion.

Your participation is important – the decisions we make in the coming year will have a significant effect on the future
of Wayne.

Letter to Village Residents
By Village Trustee Rob Reed

I would like to thank those of you who have expressed your concerns to the village board regarding the failed referendum.
We greatly appreciate your thoughts and input.

Many of your responses referenced the budget of the Public Works Department, and roads in particular. As the Trustee in
charge of the Public Works, I would like to address this issue and, hopefully, answer some of your questions and concerns.

Currently, the village public works department maintains the village’s main arterial roads and the historic district. These are
the roads that bring emergency services, police protection, and deliveries to village residents. They are also the roads that
get us to work, shopping, schools, entertainment and friends once we leave the private roads of our individual residences
and developments. The village realizes that maintenance of the roads (with a limited budget) is critical to the residences in
order to maintain property values and for all critical services to reach its residents. Specifically, the roads maintained by
the public works department include Army Trail Road (Powis Road through the village to just south of Smith Road), Smith
Road (Rt. 59 to Powis Road), Munger Road (Smith to Army Trail), Country Club Road, Peterson, and the historic district.

Most of the questions and concerns we received were from homeowners who are required to pay for maintenance of pri-
vate roads. Some questioned the Trustees’ understanding of the expenses and issues faced by these residents. First of all, I
want to assure you we do understand and appreciate your concerns. In fact, most of your village Trustees also live on pri-
vate roads and contribute to the maintenance of those roads. Secondly, as much as we might wish otherwise, the limited
budget of the public works department does not allow for maintenance of private roads. A number of years ago, the vil-
lage Trustees made a very astute decision to require all new developers to have private roads and to maintain them. They
recognized that, with our small tax base, the village and its residents could not afford to maintain all roads without a signifi-
cant increase in taxes.

Your Public Works Department is responsible for much more than resurfacing roads. Currently, all the work is provided by
two dedicated, hardworking, concerned part-time staff. Each has a full-time job in addition to their part-time work for the
village.

Following is a limited list of what they accomplish:

•   Snowplowing and salting all public roads;
•   Mow grass, weed whipping and weed maintenance along all public right of ways, park areas and village properties;
•   Pot hole patching and maintenance of the shoulders of roads with gravel, and weed kill of all public roads;
•   Storm damage prevention and maintenance including cutting of dead trees and branches along all public right of ways;
•   Cleaning of garbage and road kill on or near public roads;
•   Maintenance of all public works equipment;
•   Maintenance of village property;
•   Maintenance of all signage on public roads; and
•   Purchasing materials and supplies for public works projects.

What are our plans for the next four to five years? We have had over the past years an established systematic plan to re-
surface the roads over a 16 year period. Unfortunately, the failed referendum has mandated budget reductions for all vil-
lage departments and we will not be able to maintain our current 16-year plan. Some of the roads scheduled for resurfac-
ing will need to be delayed and completed at a future date. We are applying for grants and funding for road maintenance
and resurfacing from the Federal and State governments whenever it is available. Fortunately, we have been awarded a
State grant to resurface Smith Road in 2010. If the State completes the funding, the project will be completed this summer.
The 16-year plan had set resurfacing Army Trail Road from the railroad tracks on the west side of the village to the Kane
County border to begin this summer. Currently, we have delayed that project for four years and are planning to patch
Army Trail and possibly other roads using our funding available through MFT or the Motor Fuel Tax. There is a possibility
that, should the Smith Road project costs come in under the State’s approved dollar amount, the remaining funds may be
allocated for some, or all, of the Army Trail Road project.
                                                                                                        Continued on Page 3

 Letter to Village Residents (continued)
 By Village Trustee Rob Reed

 Our mission is, and has always been, to accomplish the maximum benefit for all residents with the resources available. The
 budget reductions created by reduced revenues, higher costs and our failed referendum will undoubtedly impede our abil-
 ity to complete projects in as timely a manner as previously projected. However, we will do everything we possibly can to
 keep the roads in relatively good shape. Regrettably, they may not be to the same standards we desire or have experi-
 enced in the past.

 We look forward to your thoughts and input.


                                                     2010 Census

Thank you to everyone who completed and mailed their Census Questionnaire. As of May 7, 2010, Wayne has an impressive
84% participation rate. The Census Bureau has begun to send out Census Bureau Enumerators, or Census Takers, to visit each
household that did not mail back a questionnaire. Unfortunately, if you obtained a replacement form and mailed it in, it is
possible that it has not been processed prior to the initial Census Takers being dispatched. The Census Bureau will continue
to update the information given to their Census Takers but, in the meantime, The Village of Wayne strongly encourages resi-
dents to cooperate with the verbal questionnaire if visited. The object is to BE COUNTED. Thank you for your cooperation.

                 Building Permits: General Information and How to Know if You Need One!
                 By Mike Gricus



Village residents planning to build or install an accessory use or structure on their property, or make improvements to their
home or property need to contact the Building and Zoning Department prior to the start of the project. The Building and
Zoning Department is staffed with certified, trained and State of Illinois licensed personnel who will be able to determine
the various codes, requirements and permits involved with the construction of a specific type of project.

Common projects that require a building permit include, but are not limited to:

Fences           Decks              Patios           Fireplaces          Driveways        Water Heaters
Sheds            Porches            Gazebos          Furnaces            Sidewalks        Siding
Room Additions                      Basements (Finished)                 Air Conditioning Units
Kitchen Remodeling                  Lawn Sprinkling Systems              Swimming Pools (Above & In-ground)
Roofing (Repairs and re-roofing)    Garages (Attached and Detached)
Electrical Work                     Plumbing work                        Window/Door Replacements

The Building and Zoning Department provides informational packets which outline the basic requirements for these types
of projects. Although these packets provide the basic requirements, each project is unique and residents should consult
with the Building and Zoning Department prior to the start of the project. Information packets are free of charge.

Residents of the Historic District may need to consult with Historic Sites for a Certificate of Appropriateness. Also, some
Homeowners Associations require a review of plans prior to homeowners applying for a permit.

If a contractor is being hired to perform the work on a project, it is advisable that certain precautions are taken prior to
signing a contract or work agreement. The precautions listed are recommended and not limited to:

· Check at least three references of the contractor’s work, preferably work you can see and verify that the contractor
   actually performed the work. If possible, request to speak with the owner of the property where the work was per-
   formed to ask about the project and their working relationship and experience with the contractor.
· Verify that the contractor has adequate insurance coverage specific to the proposed work to be performed (i.e. but not
   limited to: Products-Completed Operations, Contractual Liability, Underground Hazard Coverage, Personal Injury, Ex-
   plosion Hazard Coverage, Collapse Hazard Coverage, Worker’s Compensation and Employer’s Liability, Bodily Injury
   and Property Damage).
· Verify that the contractor is licensed to perform the proposed work (i.e. roofing, electrical, plumbing, mechanical,
   alarm installer, etc.).
· Verify who will be responsible for obtaining the required permits.
· Check with the Better Business Bureau for any information or history on the contractor. Contact the Better Business
   Bureau at 1-312-346-3313.

Residents may be unaware that their project may potentially cause drainage problems for themselves and their neighbors;
that their proposed project is located in a public easement; that ordinances may prohibit certain types of projects; or that
the project encroaches upon a neighbor’s property. In addition, for some projects, the Building and Zoning Department will
ensure that the design plans include the proper construction information and, during construction, will conduct an inspec-
tion(s) to verify permit compliance.

Once a Building Permit is secured, the yellow permit card is to be clearly posted either in the front door or
window of the building or structure, or in a location clearly visible from the street.

For more information, please visit the Village Hall or call 630-584-7760.

Spring/Summer Maintenance Tips For Your Home
By Mike Gricus


Protect your home and family from fire and other hazards. These simple and easy tasks will help provide for a safe home
environment during the spring and summer months:

•   Review your fire escape plan with your family. Always have a multi-purpose fire extinguisher accessible.
•   Review what to do and where to go during severe weather. Determine the safest room in your home to go to during
    severe weather, typically a room with no windows interior to the home and on the lowest level.
•   Check sump pumps for proper operation. Check the sump pit for any debris that could impede pump operation. To
    test, fill the pit using buckets of water to make sure the pump turns on and the system operates properly. Consider
    installing a battery back-up sump pump if power outages are frequent in your area.
•   Check all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors for proper operation. Utilize the test buttons on the detec-
    tors to check that they operate. Replace batteries annually and clean dust from detectors. Detectors are to be installed
    per manufacturer’s specifications and Village Code.
•   Check the exterior of your home for damage/deterioration (roofing, siding, trim, windows and doors). Check for proper
    operation of window and door locks.
•   Clean out gutters and downspouts. Failure to maintain gutters and downspouts lead to rain water backing up into your
    home.
•   Have a professional air conditioning contractor inspect and maintain your system as recommended by the manufac-
    turer. Replace or clean furnace filters. A dirty filter can decrease equipment efficiency including air conditioning equip-
    ment operation.
•   Check your water heater for any signs of leakage or rust. Flush if recommended by the manufacturer.
•   All chimneys and flues (i.e. fireplace, water heater, furnace) need to be checked to insure that gases are properly
    vented. Have a qualified technician check all chimney and/or flue piping to insure there are no blockages (bird or insect
    nests).
•   Clean the clothes dryer exhaust duct, damper and space under the dryer. Poor maintenance allows lint to build up in
    the exhaust duct and may cause a fire.
•   Clean bathroom exhaust fan fixtures. Poor maintenance allows dirt and dust to build up on the exhaust fan motor, and
    light if it is a fan/light combination unit, and may cause a fire.
•   Clean the kitchen exhaust hood and air filter. Keeping hood and filters clean of cooking grease will help keep a stove-
    top fire from spreading.
•   Check water hoses on the clothes washer, refrigerator icemaker and dishwasher for cracks and bubbles. Replace hoses
    that show signs of leaking.
•   Familiarize responsible family members with the location and operation of the main water supply valve for the home
    at the well tank and water supply valves at all plumbing fixtures. In case of a water pipe leak or break, or overflowing
    plumbing fixture, water can be turned off before flooding occurs.
•   Test all ground-fault-circuit-interrupter (GFCI) receptacle outlets. These should be tripped and reset once a month us-
    ing the colored test buttons on the face of the receptacle outlets. If they do not trip or reset, have the receptacle outlet
    changed by a qualified electrician. These types of receptacle outlets are required around wet areas like bathrooms,
    kitchens and the exterior of the home to provide for protection against shock or electrocution.
•   Check all exterior electrical fixtures for bird and insect nests. Failure to remove nests from electrical fixtures may cause
    fire.
•   If you have a swimming pool, insure safety fencing is secure and all gates are self closing and latching, with lock, to
    keep children and unauthorized individuals from the pool area. Check all equipment for proper operation and electrical
    safety.
•   Contact the Building and Zoning Department at 630-584-7760 should you have any questions.

   The Village of Wayne has two very special events each year—Flag Day in June and Wayne Day in October. Both are
   unique and make us proud to live in Wayne. These events, however, require money to put them on. As money tight-
   ens within the Village’s budget, you can help by donating to one or both of these events. Checks may be made to Vil-

The Village currently has six licensed waste haulers who service our residents. Road wear and tear could be reduced if only
one waste hauler serviced our Village, traveling on the roads once or twice a week. Below is a brief questionnaire. Your input
