The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented an award of
Distinguished Presentation to the Village of Skokie for its annual budget for the fiscal year beginning May 1, 2005. In
order to receive the award, a government unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy
document, as an operation guide, as a financial plan and as a communication device. The award is valid for a period of
one year only. We believe our current budget continues to conform to program requirements, and we are submitting it
to GFOA to determine its eligibility for another award.
BUDGET SUMMARY
To:              The Honorable Mayor and
                 Board of Trustees
                 Village Clerk
                 Corporation Counsel
                 Citizens of the Village of Skokie

From:            Albert J. Rigoni, Village Manager

Date:            May 21, 2007

Subject:         FISCAL YEAR 2007 – 2008 BUDGET


I am pleased to submit the Village’s Fiscal Year 2007-2008 Budget. For the seventeenth consecutive year, the Village continues the
property tax freeze, levying the same amount of property taxes in un-inflated dollars as in 1991. Through the cooperative efforts of the
Mayor, Board of Trustees and Village staff, we ensure that Village of Skokie policies, administrative decisions, actions and priorities
benefit the community. This budget reflects that philosophy, along with the objective of investing in our human resources and capital
asset base through improvement of current processes, maintaining and enhancing services and programs, and continuing sound
management practices. This transmittal letter provides an overview of the budget.

As in previous years, Department Directors prepared their budgets in a conservative and pragmatic manner. Department Directors
consistently strive to make departmental operations more efficient, while not reducing or compromising services to the public. At the
same time, the standard of excellence continues with a fully accredited Public Works Department, a CALEA accredited Police
Department and a fully accredited Fire Department that is also rated as an ISO #1, making the Village of Skokie the first municipality in
the Nation with these distinctions. In addition, the Village has one of only eight state-certified Health Departments. Financial excellence
continues to be evident in the Village's AAA Bond Rating, Certificate of Achievement in Financial Reporting and the Distinguished
Budget Presentation Awards from the Government Finance Officers Association.

The Village of Skokie was incorporated in 1888 under the name of the Village of Niles Centre. The name was changed to the Village of
Skokie in 1940. The Village operates under the Council/Manager form of government which Skokie residents voted to adopt in 1957.
It is a home rule community as defined by the Illinois Constitution. Policy making and legislative authority are vested in the Village
Board, which consists of the Mayor, Village Clerk, and six Trustees. This governing body is responsible, among other things, for
passing ordinances, adopting the budget, establishing policy, and hiring the Village Manager and Corporation Counsel. The Village



                                                                                                                                              11
                                                                                                                                                  12



Manager is responsible for carrying out the policies and ordinances of the Village Board, for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the
Village, and for appointing heads of the Village’s departments. The Mayor and Trustees are elected to four-year terms every four years.

I.       VILLAGE GOALS AND PRIORITIES FOR 2007-2008

During a number of budget planning sessions involving the Board of Trustees, Mayor, Village Clerk, Corporation Counsel, Village
Manager’s Office, Departmental Directors and Commission members, the following goals, issues and priorities were identified for the
2007-2008 fiscal year. The goals and priorities set forth by each department reflect the overall goals for the entire Village. Detailed
descriptions of each are located within the narrative summaries of their respective departments. The Fiscal Year 2008 Annual Budget,
amounting to $89,083,451 is, in large part, the Village’s effort in response to the following goals:

         •   Provide for residents’ safety and well-being through excellent municipal services and programs.
         •   Strategically plan for and promote continued and controlled redevelopment in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan.
         •   Continue infrastructure improvements and public property beautification.
         •   Provide professional administration and execution of Village codes, ordinances and directives.
         •   Continue employee training and development.
         •   Strive for service excellence and best practices in all program areas.
         •   Maintain departmental accreditations and certifications.
         •   Continue to operate in a fiscally responsible manner. This includes maintaining the AAA bond rating, the highest achievable
             rating for a municipality.
         •   Strive for employee safety and minimize the cost of risk associated with Village operations.

     The fiscal year 2008 budget addresses a number of issues and priorities, including the following:

     •   Maintain the property tax levy freeze for the 17th consecutive year.
     •   The Village has reviewed and updated fees over the last several years, and the last and most recent program and fee examined is
         the business licenses. The Village is replacing the current business license fee that is based upon a 1961 State of Illinois schedule
         with an annual Certificate of Occupancy Renewal Program that will be more equitable, comprehensive, simpler, and better protect
         and serve businesses and the public. The Director of Community Development will make a presentation regarding this
         recommendation at the Budget Hearing on April 12, 2007.
     •   Village officials and staff are committed to analyzing and utilizing the results from the recent Citizen Survey to continue and strive
         for high marks as well as enhance services and programs. The results were considered in preparing the proposed budget.
  •   Achieving, once again, the Village’s policy of limiting the annual budget to a modest increase from the previous year. This is
      partially due to departments striving for more efficient service delivery.
  •   Skokie continues to attract developers interested in development and redevelopment. In addition ensuring progress in economic
      development in the Downtown area remains a priority.
  •   Considerable reinvestment in the aging public infrastructure, including water and sewer facilities, continues to be a priority in the
      Capital Improvement Program (CIP). A sidewalk construction program is a new initiative.
  •   The dynamic relationship between the state and federal governments and the Village of Skokie continues to evolve. Specifically,
      funding shifts from one government to another as decreased funding and unfunded mandates for local government continue to
      impact the Village’s budget.
  •   During the fiscal year the Village Board will be considering a new Police facility. The fiscal year 2008 operating and capital
      budget does not include funding for the project at this time as it is anticipated the Village Board will make a decision on this
      matter during the Summer of 2007.
  •   The fiscal year 2008 budget includes balanced revenues and expenditures and continues to maintain a minimum General Fund
      balance of 25% or greater.

Urban Forestry Program - $91,175
A new item in the budget includes removing and replacing approximately 250 ash trees that are distressed. The Emerald Ash Borer has
been found in town, the Village has developed an Emerald Ash Borer Management Plan to minimize the environmental impacts of
canopy loss by maintaining healthy ash trees and through increased planting efforts. The reality is that the Village could lose 3,000
parkway trees within the next three to five years. It is imperative that the Village take a proactive approach to minimize cost impacts
and canopy loss. In order to preserve healthy ash trees, it is necessary to remove all ash trees exhibiting decline. The Emerald Ash
Borer is attracted to stressed and declining ash trees, so removing declining trees quickly after showing signs of disease should slow the
spread of the beetle.

Grant Funding Reduced - $17,798
In previous years, the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority Grant assisted in funding the professional services associated with
the Youth Outreach Program including Metropolitan Family Services, Peer Services, and Response Center. In addition, the Village is
subsidizing the Disability Services portion of the budget due to the continuing reduction in Community Development Block Grant
(CDBG) funding.

ComEd Rate 23 Increases - $81,158
ComEd is increasing the electric rate for street lights that equates to a 34% increase.

Senior Services and Programs - $11,262
Expenses associated with the Senior Transit for Area Residents (STAR), senior activities and home delivered meals programs resulted
in an increase.
Refuse Collection and Disposal Costs - $28,575
The expenses for collecting condominium refuse and recycling increased by 200 and 275 units respectively. The cost is $92.48 per unit
per year. In addition, there is a $7,115 increase in the expense for refuse disposal due to a $1.13 increase per-ton.

Alley Maintenance - $40,000
Price increases in commodities associated with maintaining the Village’s alleys including hot and cold patch, stone and dirt have
escalated. In addition, the quantities of stone and dirt have been increased due to alley maintenance needs. The expense is $145,000
representing a 38% increase.


B. Non-General Funds
                                                                               Operating
                                                                              General Fund
                                                                                                        FY08 Budget by Major Fund
The Non-General Funds section of the budget totals $42,424,120,
representing an increase of $1,604,960 or 3.9% over the prior year. The                                                                               Water Fund

Non-General Funds section of the budget includes Non-General Fund
functions such as Pensions, Water and Sewer, Flood Control,
Economic Development, Federal Aid, and Capital Improvement
Program (CIP).

The pension and retirement funds, inclusive of the Fire Pension, Police                                                                                   Other
Pension, and Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF), total
                                                                                                                                Capital Improvement
$12,031,165. This is a $457,849 increase or 3.8% over FY07.                                  Pensions
                                                                                                                                      Program


The Water Fund (Water and Sewer, Water Meter and Flood Control),               Capital Improvement Program Pensions Operating Water Fund Other
including operations and CIP, totals $9,485,240. A water rate increase
is necessary and is discussed in the other funds revenue section of this correspondence. Two significant CIP projects are proposed and
include:

         •   Williamsburg Subdivision Water System Improvements - $630,000
         •   Sewer Improvements - $450,000




                                                                                                                                                                   15
                                                                                                                                           16




There are several traffic and roadway improvements included in the FY08 Public Improvement component of the CIP. These
improvements are funded in part through Motor Fuel Tax (MFT), Economic Development (EDF), Community Development Block
Grants (CDBG), Tax Increment Financing District (TIF), and Special Service Area contributions. A number of these projects will be
supplemented with federal, state, and county contributions as well. Several significant projects planned for FY08 include:

         •   Street Resurfacing for approximately four miles - $1,625,000
         •   Sidewalk Maintenance and Construction Programs - $350,000
         •   Lincolnwood Drive Improvement Project - $300,000
                 (Additional SSA funding of $200,000)
         •   Design of Downtown Skokie Swift Station and Area Improvements - $660,000
                 (Construction expenditures with Federal and CTA contributions in FY09)
         •   Union Pacific Right-of-Way Acquisition Oakton St. to Dempster St. - $1,150,000
                 (Additional Grant funding of $920,000)


The Buildings and Grounds/Equipment portion of the CIP represents a decrease of $780,400 that is due, in large part, to significant
equipment purchases necessary last year. The fact that the Village continues to fund a very aggressive CIP on a cash basis is reflective
of good planning efforts, including the philosophical approach of “austerity” on the operational side (General Fund). It is important to
note that the Five-Year CIP, as presented, is fully funded for FY08. The proposed major equipment purchases for FY08 are
replacements and include:

         •   Police Mobile Data Computers                          $285,000
         •   Village Computer Network Equipment                    $220,000
         •   Road Grader                                           $182,000
         •   Village Hall Chiller                                  $125,000
         •   Log Truck                                             $102,000
         •   Dump Truck                                            $100,000
         •   Street Sweeper                                        $140,000
III.     REVENUES
                                                                                                 Ten Year Sales Tax Growth
A. General Fund Revenues
                                                                                  $25,000,000
The Village’s General Fund continues to be financially sound, with the
current fiscal year end fund balance projected at approximately 32.5% of the        $20,000,000
budget. Based on expected revenues for fiscal year 2008, no major increases
in taxes or other revenues are recommended this year. The Village has               $15,000,000

maintained its financial strength through commercial development that has
                                                                                    $10,000,000
resulted in stable retail centers such as Westfield Old Orchard, The Shops at
One Orchard Place and Village Crossing Shopping Center. The success of               $5,000,000
these centers is evident by generally few vacancies and a major renovation
currently underway at Old Orchard. The growth in Skokie’s retail base is                   $-
such that as of FY06, Skokie realized gross sales tax revenues totaling                              1996           2001         2006
$22,439,440. Of this total, 44.2% (or $9,918,522) was derived from the
Village’s home-rule sales tax. This tax was originally adopted in 1991 at a rate of .75%. The rate was increased to 1% effective
January 1, 2004. At that time of its original adoption, the Village relied on property taxes for 32.8% of its revenues as compared to only
17.2% currently.

With regard to property taxes, in 1991, the Village of Skokie accounted for 15.2% of an average property tax bill. In 2006, that
percentage decreased to 8.5%. The Village portion of property taxes on an average home valued at $425,000 equals approximately
$37.58 per month. This amount is used to provide many services, including fire and police protection, snow removal, street sweeping,
twice-per-week refuse collection, animal control and other health services, senior services and debt service. It is noteworthy that the
Village’s property tax levy was the same in 2006 as it was in 1990 and, based on the proposed FY08 budget, will stay the same for the
2007 levy.

B. Other Funds Revenues

The water rate increase proposal for fiscal year 2008 is 7.33%. The rate is based on the 2% annual rate increase for water the Village
purchases from the City of Evanston, the expenses associated with investing in the aging water system infrastructure, and an adjustment
for the affect of a continued decrease in water usage. Even with this increase, Skokie’s water rate will remain the second lowest among
recently surveyed municipalities. Moreover, Skokie has no sewer tax. More detail on the water rate adjustment as well as a brief
discussion of other major revenue sources is included in the Funding Summary of the Revenue and Expenditure Summary section.

     Significant research and progress was made toward development of a new police facility.

Last year was very productive and successful for the Village Board and all Village employees. I am thankful to the Mayor and Board of
Trustees for providing the necessary support for all of the past year’s accomplishments. I am especially grateful to all the Village
employees who worked so hard over the past year. I look forward to working with each of you over the next year to continue Skokie’s
proud tradition of excellence.

Finally, I would like to thank Leslie Gooris, Karen Norwood and Janelle Silva-Wilson of the Manager’s Office for their hard work in
preparing the Fiscal Year 2008 Budget. In addition, a special note of thanks to Assistant Village Manager John Lockerby, Assistant to
the Village Manager Julian Prendi and Finance Director Robert Nowak for their many hours of work on this budget.

The fund balance of the General Fund provides sufficient funds for the Village to earn meaningful interest revenue and to avoid the possibility of short-term
borrowing to meet current needs. The Village Manager has established an administrative policy requiring the General Fund balance of at least 25% for any
given year. The FY07 fiscal year end fund balance is 35.1% of the FY08 budget and continues to meet the Village’s fund balance goal. Fund balances in the
remaining funds are designated and planned for future expenditures such as depreciation of equipment, system improvement or debt service. Fund balances of
the pension funds and the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund are used to support future obligations based upon valid actuarial assumption and method.

                                            FUNDING SOURCE SUMMARY
Interest
The Village’s revenues from interest and other investment earnings account for approximately 10.2% of all Village revenues
(including returns from water fund investments). The Village’s aggregate investments for all funds at May 1, 2007 amounted to
almost $180.3 million. Of this total, the Fire and Police Pension Funds accounted for 73.4% or $132.3 million. The earnings and
investment gains on these invested amounts account for this significant revenue source.

Income and Other Taxes
The Village receives a monthly allocation of State of Illinois income taxes. This revenue source accounts for 5.8% of revenues.
Other taxes accounting for 7.4% of Village revenues include both Village imposed taxes and State allocated taxes. Taxes imposed by
the Village are the hotel/motel tax (13.1% of this category), the telecommunications tax (22.1%), and the real estate transfer tax
(20.2%). State allocated taxes include the corporate replacement tax (14.0% of this category), the motor fuel tax (20.8%), and the
use tax (9.8%).

Other Revenue Sources
This revenue source accounts for 8.0% of all Village revenues. This category includes sources such as employee contributions for
pensions, gains from fixed assets etc. Water rates in the Village were also adjusted effective for billing cycles beginning in August
2007. The new water rate will be $24.15/1000 cubic feet of water (1 cubic foot equals approximately 7.48 gallons of water). This
rate is one of the lowest in the Chicago metropolitan area even when considering the lack of a municipal sewer tax in the Village.
The Village’s water consumption is not only cyclical throughout the year, but varies from year-to-year depending on climatic
variations,. The $24.15 rate reflects an approximate 7.3% increase over the prior rate of $22.50. Aside from the cyclical nature of
Skokie’s water sales throughout the year, this year’s rate adjustment also reflects a general downward trend being experienced in the
Village across all customer groups.

DEBT
                                                    VILLAGE OF SKOKIE
                                                         FY2008
                                                   DESCRIPTION OF DEBT
The Village of Skokie only issues debt for projects for which there does not exist sufficient financial resources to pay for the project
up front. Debt is not issued for routine capital purchases as it is the Village's policy to pay for routine items through its Capital
Improvement Program (CIP). The Village considers the need to issue debt at the time that projects are identified in the CIP which
assures that there are no negative effects on current or future operations of the Village.

Major projects benefit the community for extended periods of time. Thus, rather than tax for the full amount of the projects up front,
the Village issues debt and thereby spreads the costs of such projects over their useful lives. By spreading costs over the useful life of
the project, it is the taxpayers who benefit from the project who pay the tax and not just those who were taxpayers at the time the
project was constructed.

The Village purchases its water from the City of Evanston and discharges its sewage to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District
of Greater Chicago. Under heavy rainfall, many residents experienced flooding in their basements in the early 1980s due to the
inadequate capacity in the Village's combined sewers and the water district's interceptor sewers. While the Village historically had
maintained a very low direct debt burden, in 1983, the Village embarked on a major capital program to address the flooding problems.
The Village financed the $80 million cost through general obligation bond issuance and low interest loans from the Illinois
Environmental Protection Agency, and has completed the program.

The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for Fiscal 2008 totals approximately $14.2 million. Budgeted equipment replacements,
building improvements, and other public improvements will be financed through the General Fund ($2.7 million), motor fuel taxes
($2.4 million), Community Development Block Grant ($.25 million), Economic Development Fund ($1.9 million), water revenues
($1.9 million), and tax increment financing ($5.0 million). The Village will also construct projects within the Village utilizing
Federal, State, and County grants as well as special service area financing. These projects are estimated at $14.7 million which is in
addition to the Village funded CIP of $12.5 million.

Although the Village uses general obligation debt as the primary financing mechanism and has no revenue bonds outstanding, it has
supported about two-thirds of its debt service payments through non-property tax sources. Of the $41.8 million outstanding, only $6.5
million is paid completely by broad-based property taxes. The Village's debt equates to 1.71% of property values and $660 on a per
capita basis based on the 2000 Census. Overall debt totals 2.29% of property values and $887 per capita. The Village’s debt is rated
AAA.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

The purpose for the discussion on nuts and bolts of budgeting is to introduce an overview of policies that establishes the Village of Skokie’s
framework for planning short and long term financial matters. The aim or goal for evaluating the short and long term policies is to view the
current financial conditions and future outlook and trends. This brief overview is divided into three sections outlining the Village’s Budget
Process, Introduction of Basic Funds & Fund Types and Major Financial Policies.

The financial policies have been formally adopted by the Village Board and have guided the Village in maintaining long financial stability.
The scope of these policies includes not only operating and capital budgeting but also accounting, debt management, auditing and
investment management.

I.     BUDGET PROCESS

Skokie's Annual Operating budget is prepared by fund, function, and activity, and includes information for two previous years, current year
estimates, requested appropriations for the next fiscal year, and final Village Board approved figures.

Budget preparation serves as an evaluation period for departments. It provides department directors an opportunity to review their programs
and operations. It is incumbent upon department directors to critically review existing methods, procedures, and overall effectiveness of the
various activities under their jurisdiction. By doing this, they can determine improvements that are needed to bring about a more efficient
and economical operation.

All departments of the Village submit requests for appropriation to the Village Manager. The Manager's Office reviews initial requests.
During informal meetings with individual departments, the Manager and the Assistant Village Manager recommend cuts and/or additions to
the budget requests. A proposed budget is then printed, bound, and presented to the Board of Trustees for review during the formal budget
hearings. During these hearings, the Board may add to, subtract from, or change any requested appropriations. After the public hearings,
the pursuant revisions are made on all appropriate forms including the narratives and spreadsheets. The Manager's office compiles Village
Board approved figures along with all accompanying budget support documentation in a single volume that operates as the Village's annual
budget.




                                                                                                                                                 40

                                             NUTS AND BOLTS OF BUDGETING

The Manager is authorized to transfer budgeted amounts between departments within any fund; however, the governing body must approve any
revisions that alter the total expenditures of any fund. The Village of Skokie annually adopts a balanced budget where operating revenues are
equal to or exceed operating expenditures. Expenditures may not legally exceed budgeted appropriations at the fund level. In cases where such is
necessary, a formal amendment is required from the governing Board of Trustees.

II.    INTRODUCTION OF BASIC FUNDS AND FUND TYPES

The manner in which governmental units present or account for results of transactions differs fundamentally from that of profit-seeking
entities. While standard business accounting details the operations of a single economic entity such as a corporation or sole proprietorship,
governmental accounting focuses more specifically upon an organization's various projects and activities. These projects and activities are
grouped into related accounts called "funds.” Fund accounting is designed to demonstrate legal compliance and to aid financial
management.

The following is a brief description of the three basic fund categories accompanied by an explanation of the fund types that belong in a
particular category and are contained in this budget document.

       A.      GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS
               Resources in these funds are intended to be expended within a specific period of time, usually a budget year. Their primary
               function is to measure the flow of resources, in the form of revenues and expenditures, into and out of the funds.

               1.      General Fund:
                       Includes all general governmental financial operations not accounted for by any other fund type. Revenues in this
                       fund are derived from taxes, fees, and other sources that are not designated for any specific purposes. These
                       revenues finance ongoing governmental services such as administration, maintenance and police and fire protection.

               2.      Special Revenue Funds:
                       Account for the expenditure of revenue, which have been provided to the government for specific programs or
                       projects. However, expenditures for building programs, major equipment purchases or similar undertakings,
                       normally classified as capital improvements, are excluded. The Village’s special revenue funds consists of the

                                NUTS AND BOLTS OF BUDGETING
            Motor Fuel Tax, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF) North
            Shore Convention & Visitor’s Bureau, East Church Street TIF, Downtown TIF and CTA parking lot fund.

     3.     Debt Service Funds:
            Account for resources earmarked to make interest and principal payments on long-term debt. The Village of Skokie,
            as a home rule community of the State of Illinois, has no debt limit under the Illinois Constitution. If Skokie were a
            non-home rule community, the debt limit would be 8.625% of equalized assessed valuation, or would have a
            maximum debt limit of $211,320,760. The Village of Skokie’s actual debt total is $56,170,605, 1.71% of property
            values and $660 per capita. Debt service fund consists of the Public Benefit Fund along with the General Obligation
            Fund.

     4.     Capital Projects Fund:
            Capital Projects fund are governmental funds used to account for financial resources to be used for the acquisition or
            construction of major capital facilities. This fund also provides funding for major computerization and equipment
            purchases. Major Capital Improvements are identified early in the budget process sometimes years in advance of the
            actual improvement. A number of methods used for identifying capital improvement needs include the surveying of
            community residents. Smaller organizational capital improvements are handled internally and sometimes in
            cooperation with other governmental agencies. Smaller capital improvements are proposed by Village staff through
            the budget document and then prioritized accordingly based on organizational needs and funding capabilities.

B.   PROPRIETARY FUNDS
     The resources in these funds are not meant to be exhausted within a specific time period. Their activities more closely
     resemble ongoing profit making businesses in which the purpose is to conserve and add to basic resources while meeting
     operating expenses from current revenues. However, instead of adding to existing resources the primary intent of
     proprietary fund transactions is to break even or recover the cost of operations.

     1.     Enterprise Funds:
            Account for activities, which are usually self-sustaining principally through user charges for services, rendered. The
            specific fund administered in this budget under Village control is the Water Fund. Other enterprise activities relate



                                                                                                                                     42
                                                                                                                                                        43



                                                   V I L L A G E O F SK O K I E

                        to the administration, operations, maintenance, construction and fee collection of a commuter parking lot adjacent to
                        the Skokie Swift Rapid transit line.

                2.      Internal Service Funds:
                        Account for services or goods provided by one department to other departments or funds within the Village
                        government.

        C.      PENSION TRUST FUND OPERATIONS
                These funds are used to account for those activities in which a governmental unit is acting as a trustee or agent for other
                individuals or governmental units. They are used to demonstrate how well the governmental unit has carried out its
                fiduciary responsibilities with regard to the assets entrusted to it. The Village of Skokie maintains two pension trust funds
                mandated by State law, one for firefighters and one for police officers (other employees are covered by the Illinois
                Municipal Retirement Fund).

III.    FINANCIAL POLICIES

As stated in the “Statement of Purpose,” the Village’s financial policies not only include operating and capital budgeting but also accounting,
debt management, auditing and investment management. The Village Board has adopted a policy of permitting only minimal annual increases.
The FY 2008 Budget increased by $3,751,899 or 4.4%. The capital budget is setup as “pay as you go” therefore funding is available for CIP
projects either in whole or in part through Federal, State, County, private developers or other financial sources. Skokie’s philosophy is to provide
funding from existing revenue sources where possible in other words funding sources are identified long before they are needed.

Accounting:
The Village’s finances are accounted for in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles or GAAP as established by the
Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB).

The annual budget is prepared on a modified accrual basis with appropriated budgets adopted for the general fund, certain special revenue funds,
debt service funds, capital projects funds, water (enterprise) fund and proprietary funds. In the annual budget, revenues from the specific
accounting period (coming fiscal year) are presented as available for the liquidation of incurred liabilities during that accounting period (based on
                                                    V I L L A G E O F SK O K I E
                                                             FY2008
                                               NUTS AND BOLTS OF BUDGETING
revenue estimation studies). Appropriations for expenses are presented as the anticipated overall liabilities to be incurred during the fiscal year.
All annual appropriations, therefore, lapse at fiscal year end. Furthermore, the Village’s budget is prepared based on fund accounting, where
different funds (i.e. general fund, water fund etc.) are separate accounting entities comprised of various accounts, detailed appropriations for
which are presented in line-item format. Under the modified accrual method, revenues are recognized when they become measurable and
available to finance current expenditures. Available means collectible in the current period or soon thereafter; for this purpose the Village
considers revenues to be available if they are collected within 60 days of the end of the current fiscal year. Similarly, under the modified accrual
method, expenditures are generally recognized when the transaction is expected to draw on current spendable resources.

The modified accrual method explained above is the Village’s basis of accounting for the governmental funds explained in previous sections such
as the General Fund, Special Revenue Funds, Debt Service Funds and Capital Projects Fund. The non-governmental fund types, inclusive of
proprietary funds utilize the full accrual basis of accounting. Accrual basis accounting records the financial effects of transactions and other
events and circumstances that have cash consequences in the periods in which those transactions, events and circumstances occur, regardless
of the timing of related cash flows.

Debt Management:
The Village of Skokie only issues debt for projects for which there does not exist sufficient financial resources to pay for the project up front.
Debt is not issued for routine capital purchases as it is the Village’s policy to pay for routine items through the CIP. Consideration of the issuance
of debt for CIP projects at the time they are identified in the CIP assures that there are no negative effects on current or future operations of the
Village of Skokie

Major projects benefit the community for extended periods of time. Thus, rather than tax for the full amount of the projects up front, the Village
issues debt and therefore the costs of such projects are spread over the useful life of the project. By spreading costs over the useful life of the
project, it is the taxpayers who benefit from the project and who pay the tax and not just those who were taxpayers at the time the project was
performed. A detailed description of debt can be found in the Debt Summary section.

                                             NUTS AND BOLTS OF BUDGETING
Auditing:
At the close of each fiscal year, within a three month period of time, an audit of all Village accounts is conducted by an independent auditor.
The auditor for the Village is approved by the Mayor and Board of Trustees.

Investment and Cash Management:
The Village has adopted a comprehensive investment and cash management policy (the “Policy”) addressing the administration of all funds
governed by the Mayor and Board of Trustees of the Village.

The establishment of the Investment Policy is the responsibility of the Mayor and the Board of Trustees. The Management &
Administrative responsibility for the Investment Program is delegated to the Village Manager or designee who, under the delegation of the
Board of Trustees, shall establish written procedures for the operation of the investment program. The Director of Finance provides an
investment report to the Village on a quarterly basis. The Village’s investment policy is to minimize credit and market risks while
maintaining a competitive yield on its portfolio. The Village’s formal investment policy, which was adopted in 1999, requires deposits in
financial institutions to either be federally insured or collateralized if deposits in that institution exceed FDIC protection at 110% of the
value of the Village’s deposits. All collateral for deposits was held either by the Village or a third party financial institution.

The Village’s investment objective, as summarized in the Policy, is to preserve capital, diversity investments, provide liquidity and
maximize investment income. Further, the Policy establishes a standard of prudence which states the Investments shall be made with
judgment and care, under circumstances then prevailing, which persons of prudence, discretion and intelligence exercise in the management
of their own affairs. Such a standard, therefore, avoids unwarranted speculation; emphasis is placed on the probable safety of capital rather
than probable income to derive.

GOALS

       1.     Maintain the Zoning Chapter and the Comprehensive Plan as effective planning tools for the comprehensive physical
              development and stability of the Village, with provision for a fair and just avenue of administrative relief.
       2.     Develop and recommend policies that concern the future land development and redevelopment of the Village, to
              protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Skokie.

DIVISION DESCRIPTIONS:

The Plan Commission (9PT/$33,934) is comprised of eight regular members and a Chairperson, who are appointed by the Mayor and
Board of Trustees. The Community Development Director serves as an ex-officio member of the Commission. The Legal
Department and Planning Division act as staff advisors. The Plan Commission is an advisory body in most circumstances, and almost
all recommendations require action by the Mayor and Board of Trustees.

The Zoning Board of Appeals (9PT/$33,934) is comprised of eight regular members and a Chairperson, who are appointed by the
Mayor and Board of Trustees. The Deputy Community Development Director serves as an ex-officio member of the Board. The
Legal Department and Deputy Director of Community Development act as staff advisors. The Zoning Board of Appeals is a final
hearing body with only specific types of appeals requiring actions by the Mayor and Board of Trustees.

PROGRAM REVIEW

The Plan Commission is expected to hear 81 cases in FY08, a level similar to the number of cases from FY06 and FY05, but slightly
lower than the record-breaking number of cases in FY04. The number of submittals in FY07 dropped from the FY06 and FY05 levels
due to a slow down in residential development as large-scale previously approved residential and mixed use developments were
absorbed by the market. The Plan Commission continued to focus on redevelopment in the Village, Comprehensive Plan review,
Zoning Chapter amendments, and implementation of the Village’s alley vacation program. One case in particular was extremely labor

intensive, the redevelopment of the Illinois Science + Technology Park.

The Plan Commission had three special objectives to complete during FY07. The first was to continue to implement the
Comprehensive Plan, especially area and sub-area plans. The Plan Commission updated Appendix C – Near North Suburban Housing
Activity Study, which was first completed in 2003, and also reviewed Appendix D – Multifamily Housing Study. Both these updates
will be used to revise chapters of the Comprehensive Plan in FY08. Work also continued in FY07 on a final Sector A – Downtown
Plan to replace the interim plan. This final Sector A plan should be brought to the Plan Commission in early FY08. Their second
special objective was to continue reviewing and revising the Zoning chapter. The Commission reviewed text amendments regarding
caterers, construction fences, permitted obstructions in side yards, medical and dental labs, and medical facilities and clinics. The
most comprehensive amendment was the creation of a new B6 Downtown Science and Technology district, which included a major
revision and standardization of the use table. The Plan Commission’s final special objective, to continue the street and alley vacation
program, continued to make great progress in FY07 with the review and approval of 48 additional alley segments. Since FY05, the
Plan Commission has reviewed and recommended vacation of 72 of the 123 locations in the program. This program will continue in
FY08. In addition to the Plan Commission’s special objectives, several major developments were reviewed, including the site plan
approval for the Illinois Science + Technology Park and the revision of the previously approved redevelopment of a transit oriented
development at the Dempster-Swift Shopping Center site. Numerous other special use applications, subdivisions, and map
amendments were also considered.

The number of cases heard by the Zoning Board of Appeals remained extraordinarily high in FY07 and is expected to remain high in
FY08. The continued level of cases is due, in part, to multiple zoning amendments approved in the last four years that affected a large
number of residential properties as well as requests for non-conforming second-story additions. Exception permits for fences are by
far the most common requests. Most of the other cases involved deficiencies in lot coverage, side yards, impermeable surfaces, floor
to-area ratio, front yard setbacks requirements, and cases initiated due to code enforcement efforts. Almost all cases were for existing
structures, not teardowns.

BUDGET ISSUES

The Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals Budget for FY08 is reduced by $2,000 from the FY07 funding level. The
reduction is due to a $1,500 decrease in the court reporter budget because of fewer and shorter cases. Many of the printing and
photography functions necessary for Plan Commission meetings and Zoning Board of Appeals hearings are now done in house
allowing a $500 reduction in the photography and blueprinting budget. It should be noted that, as in FY05, FY06, and FY07, the
budgeted amount only allows for one of the two chairpersons to attend the national American Planning Association conference.

FY08 OBJECTIVES

The FY08 objective of the Plan Commission is to hold hearings as set forth in the Cities and Village's Act of the State of Illinois, as
amended, on all requests for:

       1.   Changes in zoning                                    5.   Special use permits
       2.   Creation of new zones                                6.   Planned developments and site plan approvals
       3.   Amendments to the Zoning Chapter                     7.   Amendments to the Comprehensive Plan
       4.   Vacations of public rights-of-way                    8.   Subdivisions, consolidations, and dedications

Special FY08 objectives for the Plan Commission include continued implementation the new Comprehensive Plan, especially area and
sub-area plans, continued review and revision the Zoning chapter of the Village Code in order to implement the policies of the
Comprehensive Plan and make the chapter more user friendly, and continued implementation of the Village-wide street and alley
vacation program. There has been a very significant increase in workload since FY01 due to a continued prolonged strong economic
environment and Comprehensive Plan review. Despite the slowdown in mixed-used development in FY07, the workload is expected
to remain strong in FY08 as the Comprehensive Planning efforts, Downtown redevelopment, and the expansion of Westfield Old
Orchard Shopping Center continue as well as the realization of other developments Staff has been working on during FY07 that will
be filed will the Plan Commission in FY08.

HUMAN RELATIONS COMMISSION
GOALS

The goals of the Human Relations Commission are:
1. To encourage understanding and respect between Skokie residents of various racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds in the hopes
   of reducing fair housing and neighbor disputes;
2. To promote the amicable settlement of disputes between neighbors; and
3. Promote understanding between different cultures through the participation in various community events and activities, including
   the Festival of Cultures, Black History Month, Block Parties, and the Diversity Contest.

COMMISSION DESCRIPTION

The Human Relations Commission ($14,125) is composed of 23 members of the community who reflect the various racial, ethnic and
religious groups in the Village and whose training, interest and background will aid the Commission in its work. The commission is
staffed by the Human Services Director.

Each Commission member serves on one of the Commission's four committees, which include the following:

              EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATION AND YOUTH
              HOUSING
              RESIDENT LIAISON
              SPECIAL PROJECTS

The Commission is also charged by ordinance to monitor real estate transaction and compliance with the Village's Fair Housing and
Equal Opportunity Ordinance.

PROGRAM REVIEW

Promotion of neighborhood Block Parties remains an important part of the Commission's efforts to enhance understanding, respect
and friendship among Village residents. Fifty-Five Block Parties were held throughout the Village this past year. In order to try to
encourage more Block Parties a new flyer and more publicity will be given to Block Parties. Letters were sent to all who had a Block
Party encouraging them to apply for Block Party of the Year.

During the 2006 Festival of Cultures the Human Relations Commission participated by manning the Information Booth.

The winners of the annual commission arts and writing contest were announced at the closing ceremonies of the Festival of Cultures.
Artwork was displayed at the library for a month after the winners were announced.

During the year the commission focused on diversity issues. There is a comprehensive plan to promote understanding in various ways
in the community. The commission will again sponsor a Black History Month project with the library.

There were no confirmed housing complaints. A brochure is available to all landlords explaining our ordinance.

TRAFFIC SAFETY COMMISSION
GOALS
The goals of the Traffic Safety Commission are to:
1.    Develop a safer environment for vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the Village by carrying on educational activities in
      safety matters.
2.    Improve general safety of vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the community through Traffic Safety Commission Condition
      Reports.
3.    Improve general conditions of vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the community through recommending certain positive
      actions to the Board of Trustees and Village Administration.
4.    Work towards long term improvements of vehicular and pedestrian traffic matters in the region through offering opinions,
      etc., to state legislation, State officials, etc., when certain safety related issued are being evaluated as a whole.

DIVISION DESCRIPTION
The Traffic Safety Commission ($3,240) is appointed by and responsible to the Village Board of Trustees. The Commission has the
responsibility for coordinating traffic safety activities, providing educational activities and preparing traffic safety reports. The
Commission also makes recommendations to the Board of Trustees on ways to improve traffic safety conditions and
proclamations/programs on traffic and pedestrian safety matters.

PROGRAM REVIEW
The previous year has seen continued emphasis in public awareness programs as part of the Commission's projects, in particular, again
hosting Bicycle Safety Day. Also, issuance of Proclamations was used as another measure to expand public awareness of traffic safety
issues, their own and other programs. Providing suggestions regarding safety issues continue to be a goal, and the education of children on
a variety of issues continues to be a main concern. Traffic Safety Week and Bicycle Safety Day is one means used to achieve these goals
while use of Traffic Safety Commission Condition Reports remains a viable means to notify appropriate Village departments of safety
conditions needing attention.

BUDGET ISSUES
The Commission’s FY08 Budget reflects a $535 increase which is associated with Bicycle Safety Day and membership dues increases.

LIQUOR CONTROL COMMISSION
GOALS

To administer judiciously and effectively the appropriate provisions of the State of Illinois Liquor Control Act and all Ordinances and
Resolutions relating to the production, distribution, sale and consumption of alcohol, as enacted by the Board of Trustees.

DIVISION DESCRIPTION

The Liquor Control Commission ($2,650) is required by state law. The Mayor of the Village of Skokie serves as the authority to grant
and suspend liquor licenses, to authorize any law enforcement officer to enter any licensed premises to determine if any rules or
regulations are being violated, to receive complaints from citizens and to receive local license fees. The Liquor Commission also
investigates and responds to complaints about liquor licenses in the Village.

PROGRAM REVIEW

The Commission is concerned primarily with keeping accurate records of licenses, collecting annual fees from license holders and
investigating and responding to complaints regarding liquor licenses. During FY06, the Village established a new liquor license
classification E. The new classification added several liquor licenses in the areas with highest commercial density, five of which
became available during FY06 and the remaining became available during FY07. For FY08, four liquor licenses remain available,
three of which are dedicated to businesses interested in the Downtown area.

FY08 OBJECTIVES

        1.     Maintain an efficient system for the receipt and recording of local license fees;
        2.     Respond promptly and efficiently to citizen complaints pertaining to local liquor control statutes.

FINE ARTS COMMISSION
GOALS

The Skokie Fine Arts Commission's mission statement is "to encourage, support and promote the arts, and to develop an active
awareness and appreciation of the arts, thereby enhancing the quality of life in Skokie."

The goals of the Skokie Fine Arts Commission are to:

1.     Promote and encourage community organizations and individuals who are active in the arts.
2.     Invite, enlist and encourage public and private agencies, as well as the general public, to support arts and culture in the Village
       of Skokie.
3.     Inform the general public about the activities of organizations whose efforts advance arts and culture in Skokie.

DIVISION DESCRIPTION

The Fine Arts Commission ($21,467) was established in 1966 and may have up to 20 members whose training, interest and
background will aid the commission in its work. The Chairman and members are appointed by the Mayor with the advice and consent
of the Board of Trustees. The term of the office of each member is for two years and remains in effect until a qualified successor has
been appointed. The members of the Fine Arts Commission serve without monetary compensation.

PROGRAM REVIEW

The Educational Arts Enrichment Grant Program, which was launched in FY93, enjoyed a successful year. The program allows
schools to apply for a "Program Grant," not to exceed $250, to present a performing art group of their choice.

The Fine Arts Commission is a re-granting agency of the State of Illinois Arts Council. Grant funds are disbursed through the
Commission’s Project Grant Program. The Village receives between $5,000 and $6,000 annually from the Illinois Arts Council.

The Annual SOAR (Students’ Outstanding Artistic Recognition) Program, held at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in
Skokie in March, was a huge success. The talent of Skokie children representing 21 Skokie schools was showcased as part of Youth
Arts Month. A reception held to honor the students was attended by over 1,500 Skokie residents.

BEAUTIFICATION AND IMPROVEMENT COMMISSION
GOALS

The goal of the Beautification and Improvement Commission is to maintain and improve the physical appearance of public and private
property within the Village.

DIVISION DESCRIPTION

The Beautification and Improvement Commission ($14,450) consists of twenty members concerned with the beautification and
improvement of public areas in the Village.

PROGRAM REVIEW

The Beautification and Improvement Commission uses many approaches to make the Village aesthetically appealing. The
Commission has become involved in replacing trees removed along the North Shore Channel Park, professional landscaping at public
areas, clean-up activities, and street decorations as well as overseeing the street banner program. Each year, the Beautification
Commission sponsors a tree planting ceremony for Arbor Day. Last year, the Commission in cooperation with the Skokie Park
District and the Village Public Works Department, sponsored tree planting ceremonies and involved the student body of several public
schools throughout the Village. An important program that fosters citizen involvement is the Commission's merit award program
identifying and awarding homeowners and businesses that take good care of their properties.

BUDGET ISSUES

There has been a nominal increase of $250 to cover increasing costs to print the program for the Homeowners Award ceremony and
other commodities related to that event.

FY08 OBJECTIVES

1.     Conduct a professional design by a landscape architect of several public areas in the Village including landscaping at Village
       arrowheads, municipal lots and corporate entrances to the Village.

APPEARANCE COMMISSION

GOALS

       1.     Promote the public health, safety, morals, comfort, and general welfare of the citizens of the Village;
       2.     Enhance local property values;
       3.     Protect and stabilize the general appearance of property;
       4.     Ensure adequate light, air, and privacy for property; and,
       5.     Encourage and promote acceptability, attractiveness, cohesiveness, and compatibility of new buildings, developments,
              remodeling, additions, and signs so as to maintain and improve the established standards of property values.

DIVISION DESCRIPTIONS
The Appearance Code Commission ($24,830) is comprised of 7 members who are appointed by the Board of Trustees on a part-time
basis. In addition, 4 full-time staff members act as technical advisors to the Commission: the Village Building Inspector and Building
and Zoning Supervisor from the Building Division of the Community Development Department, and the Community Development
Director and Planner from the Planning Division of the Community Development Department. Salary figures for the staff advisors
are contained in their respective departmental budgets. The Appearance Code Commission budget contains a $55 increase for
reimbursable travel expenses for staff attending Appearance Commission meetings in FY 2008. However, this has been offset by a
reduction in the budgeted amount for photography and blueprinting, and postage. Photography and blueprinting has not been used in
recent years as petitioners are now required to submit photos with their applications. Postage has been reduced in anticipation of a
lower caseload in FY08.

PROGRAM REVIEW
The Appearance Code Commission was established in 1973 by the Mayor and Board of Trustees to promote greater aesthetic design
quality in the Village. During FY 2007, the Appearance Code Commission reviewed a total of 169 cases or approximately 14 cases
per month. This is a decrease of 33 cases from FY 2006, possibly a result of the slowing housing market during 2006. The great
majority of cases were home remodeling and new home construction petitions, continuing the trend begun in FY 2003. Prior to that
year, sign cases greatly outnumbered new residential construction. The number of home remodeling cases decreased from 131 in FY
2006 to 92 in FY 2007. New residential construction cases remained strong at 57 cases, up slightly from 54 in FY 2006. The

caseload reflects the continuing high demand for larger homes in Skokie. Many residents want to remain in their homes and
improve/expand them, while other homes are being razed and replaced with larger homes. With the slowing of the housing market
and potential rise in mortgage rates, the number of cases for single-family detached homes may decrease in coming years. It should
be noted that there were 2 new multifamily construction cases this year, the same number as last year. Staff has received inquiries and
preliminary plans for new multifamily developments, so new cases are expected in FY 2008.

Village-wide commercial sign installation cases continued to drop in number from previous years, because most replacement sign
cases are now reviewed by staff. Caseload trends for commercial uses in specific areas of the Village continue from previous years.
There were fewer cases in the East Dempster Street area (1) and the West Dempster Street area (3), but continues to be more cases in
the downtown (6) and throughout the rest of the commercial areas of the Village (5 overall).

A substantial redevelopment of a portion of the Old Orchard Shopping Center was underway during FY2007, but no major cases at
Village Crossing.

Staff anticipates the number of combined cases reviewed by the Appearance Code Commission in FY 2008 to remain the same or
slightly decline. Zoning changes in 2002 encouraging mixed use development near the Skokie Swift station has resulted in a number
of development cases, and the anticipated completion of the downtown plan may encourage mixed use development in that area.
Although the softening of the housing market may result in a decrease in the number of cases from the recent strong years, the number
of cases should remain high by long term historical standards.

The Appearance Commission successfully completed all of its FY 2007 objectives.

of the economic development tax to property transfers and other documents received by the Village. The OCC prepares letters and
responses to inquiries made to the Village.

The OCC participates as a member of the Village’s Special Project Task Force, Zoning Review Committee, Code Enforcement

subject matters of the committees. The OCC assists in the development of solutions or drafting of ordinances that address these
problems or concerns.

The OCC provides a variety of prosecutorial services to the Village. On a weekly basis, the OCC prosecutes traffic offenses and

PROGRAM REVIEW

In addition to coordinating the day-to-day activities of the Village's seven departments, the Manager's Office was active in
implementing and completing a variety of projects affecting a wide range of Village operations during the past year.

The Village Manager’s Office continued to work with the Community Development Department to coordinate a number of projects,
including the Illinois Science + Technology Park. The site plan for the project was approved by the Board during FY07. The
Manager’s office working closely with the economic development coordinator, finance director and corporation counsel negotiated
and executed the economic development agreement with Forest City, the developer of the science park. A special service area was
also established for the site as part of the project.

In late summer 2006, the Village contracted with the National Research Center (NRC), Boulder, Colorado, to conduct a written survey
of Skokie residents to rate life in the community and satisfaction with specific Village programs and services. A total 1,200 surveys
were mailed to randomly selected Skokie single- and multi-family households, with 480 surveys returned for a 40% response rate.
The Village partnered with the NRC in 2003, as well, and the results of the 2006 written survey were compared to the
prior data. Once again, the survey revealed that Skokie residents are, overall, highly satisfied with the quality of life in the Village
and with Village services.

The Manager’s Office worked closely with the Economic Development office to recommend before the Board a grant to the
Independent Merchants of Downtown Skokie (IMODS). The Board approved this grant that will be used for conducting research
regarding the operations and functions of other downtown associations, printing and distributing a quarterly newsletter, publishing a
business directory, assisting the Village in marketing available downtown properties and more. The Manager’s Office continued its
focus on the downtown by beginning the process for the development of a parcel on Oakton and Lincoln. A request for qualifications
(RFQ) was issued with several developers responding.

The Village Manager’s Office also continues to administer a number of grant agreements through the State of Illinois that have
provided financial assistance for public improvements throughout the Village. FY07 was also the second year that the Village
participated in the ICMA Comparative Performance Measurement Initiative, Chicago-area consortium. Data was collected and
analyzed and was issued to departments as a planning tool for the future. Additionally, the Manager’s Office continues to oversee the

Village’s GIS development. In FY07 the Village renewed its contract with Municipal GIS Partners for the provision of GIS services
as part of the multi-community consortium.

The Village Manager and the Police Chief researched options for modernizing and/or building a new police facility. Alternatives
were researched including site and land options. Also, tours of modern Police Stations in neighboring communities were completed.

The Village Manager increasingly works on legislative issues which impact municipalities. The Manager coordinates with the Mayor,
Corporation Counsel, Illinois Municipal League, and Northwest Municipal Conference to protect municipal interests in Springfield.

The Manager’s Office assisted in numerous efforts involving intergovernmental coordination, including:
   • A formal agreement with the Illinois Department of Transportation for grant funding to reimburse the Village for design fees
      relating to Phases I and II of the Downtown Skokie Swift station.
   • Working with the Engineering division, coordinated a Local Agency Agreement for Federal Participation – Phase II for the
      Golf Rd./Skokie Blvd. intersection improvement project.
   • Renewed a 10-year agreement with the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park for the display of statues at the Channel Park.
   • Working with the Engineering division, executed an intergovernmental agreement with Cook County relating to the East
      Oakton Street project, for cost sharing and reimbursement.
   • The continuation of two School Resource Officers in High School District 219 based on a 70-30% share of the cost between
      the Village and District 219.
   • Continued representation on the District 219 Financial Advisory Committee.

In addition to administering personnel policies, the Personnel Division is responsible for coordinating many other initiatives. In
overseeing the general personnel programs of the Village, the Personnel Division continually reviews policies and practices. New
policies or procedures are developed and modified in compliance with applicable law. The Village continues to develop and
administer personnel policies to meet operational needs. Articles 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 and 9 in the Personnel Manual were revised and
distributed. Updates and revisions to the remaining Articles will continue through FY08.

The Personnel Division is in negotiations for a successor collective bargaining agreement with the Firefighters and Fire Lieutenants.
The parties did not reach agreement at the bargaining table nor with the assistance of a federal mediator. The parties are presenting

the issues in dispute to an arbitrator. The fire union also filed four unfair labor practice charges against the Village and there is one
open grievance. Labor relations with Police have been minimal with only one grievance filed during FY07.

Benefit administration, though not exclusively allocated to insurance programs, is dominated by monitoring current trends, responding
to employee inquiries as well as anticipating future needs. In an effort to minimize the increase in health care costs and be responsive
to employee complaints regarding customer service, the Village changed medical insurance vendors. The Personnel Division will
continue to review alternatives to insurance benefits, programs and vendors. In addition, we are continuously responsive to revisions,
updates and new federally mandated insurance programs such as the Medicare Modernization Act (Medicare Part D), COBRA and
HIPPA.

The Personnel Division continues to review and evaluate compensation and classification of positions as vacancies occur and changes
are made during the budget process. Job descriptions continue to be updated for the 109 job titles and positions. The remaining job
descriptions will be completed during FY08.

The Personnel Division initiates the recruitment process for all vacancies throughout the Village. There were 40 vacancies as a result
of retirements, resignations and promotions. This does not include the 39 seasonal positions that we recruit for. On an annual basis,
we receive and process over 2,000 applications for non-fire and police personnel.

The retirement of a police commander position created a vacancy. In addition, the promotional process was completed for the Fire
Captain Eligibility List. The Personnel Division coordinated and participated in the promotional process for both positions.

The Personnel Division continues to provide secretarial services and support to the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners. The
Personnel Division coordinates the in-house selection process for entry level Fire and Police positions, as well as all promotions
governed by the Board. During this fiscal year, an entry-level Firefighter testing process was commenced. The physical agility
portion of the process will be administered in FY08. A promotional process was coordinated for the Police Sergeants and a
promotional process was commenced for the Fire Lieutenants. Both Eligibility Lists will be in effect for 2 years. In addition, the
Rules and Regulations of the Board of Fire and Police Commission, the Promotional Manual for Police Sergeants and the Selection
Manual for Police Officers were all updated.

The Multi-Media Division continued to keep current with new federal regulations on a range of telecommunications issues (wireless,
cable, right-of-way (ROW) management, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) etc.). All Village Board meetings were recorded and
broadcast on SkokieVision municipal cable channel three days per week. The division provided as-necessary support for the Village’s
website regarding graphic design. The Division also provided oversight and technical support assistance to users of the Skokie
Community Institutional Network. The schools continued to implement new services using the fiber. The Village’s agreements with
various users of the rights-of-way require oversight and management to resolve issues of concern and non-compliance. Pending
legislation at both state and federal levels was reviewed for impact on the community and correspondence to Representatives and
Senators were distributed. New in FY07 was the added responsibility of overseeing the Village’s municipal Wi-Fi system,
SkokieLINK. The pilot program was successfully launched during the middle of the fiscal year and is tested and monitored on a
weekly basis for performance issues. The division continued to provide support services to the Cable Advisory Commission.

The Marketing & Public Information Division implemented programs included in the Marketing and Communications Plan as well
as other initiatives:

Economic Development Communications Outreach
During FY07, in cooperation with the Economic Development Division, the Marketing Division worked closely with Forest City staff
on Illinois Science + Technology Park public relations matters. An outreach piece was developed and issued to all Skokie businesses
that included a magnet with relevant Village department contact information. A year-long ad Crain’s Chicago Business advertising
campaign ended in October 2006, and a year-long radio advertising campaign on WGN-Radio began in January 2007. The Village
hosted a Skokie Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event on November 2, 2006 at the North Shore Center for the
Performing Arts in Skokie to begin the Center’s 10th Anniversary weekend celebration.

Additional Communications Outreach
The Marketing Division continued publishing NewSkokie, Quick Takes, SkokieNews and Skribbles, newsletters and other marketing
and communications initiatives geared toward Skokie residents and businesses, residents and businesses outside Skokie, Village
employees and the media. The Marketing Division also coordinated the Annual Employee Party, an employee Halloween party, and
the October Village Open House that was attended by 400 Skokie residents. Additionally, the Marketing Division coordinated the
Village’s Festival of Cultures display and served on the Festival of Cultures Board and Executive Committee, also chairing the
Festival Food Committee. Marketing Division staff continued to represent the Village of Skokie on the board and executive
committee of the Chicago’s North Shore Convention and Visitors Bureau, and oversaw operations at the North Shore Center for the

Performing Arts in Skokie, serving on the Centre East Authority Board and Rice Endowment Committee and auditing North Shore
Center for the Performing Arts Foundation Board meetings. Marketing Division staff provided oversight for public information
outreach regarding a number of FY07 initiatives and events, including Downtown redevelopment efforts. Additionally, the Village
continued to mail New Resident’s packets to all new property owners. This program complements the web site New Packet Request
Form that is often used by new occupants of apartments. A recent addition to the packet was a survey regarding the helpfulness of the
information. All surveys returned to date have been complimentary. A revised general information guide was designed and printed.

The Marketing and Public Information Division also oversees the Freedom of Information Act Requests. This represented an ever-
growing responsibility for the division. These requests require considerable administrative time to process. Annual requests have
grown steadily from nine in 1989 to over 350 requests this year.

The Human Services Division regularly assumes the role of coordinator or facilitator to help residents in distress. Problems facing
the people who come to us are more complex and require referrals to many area services. Certain factors continue to effect requests
for service: a rapidly growing and aging senior population that requires more services in order to maintain independence; a larger and
more diverse general population; persons working two jobs and having difficulty managing financially in the suburbs; a number of
chronically mentally ill residents needing service who fall between the cracks of traditional services; and the downturn in the economy
causing job loss for an extended period of time.

       The Hazardous Homes Task Force meets in conjunction with the code committee when cases are active. When a case is first

       The Smith Activities Center continues to draw an average of 1,500 participants each month to a variety of educational, social
       and recreational programs. Efforts have been made to provide more educational and cultural programs. Staff is working with
       the Skokie Park District to collaborate on programs. We have also added a successful preparation for citizenship class and
       have a Russian speaking social worker from CJE who works at our site once a week.

       The staff continues to help people navigate the Medicare Part D, SHIP and Circuit Breaker programs. We have two volunteers
       that help sign up for the program.

    Between 50-60 people per month are receiving home-delivered meals. Village staff has been very responsive to our various
    programs by delivering meals for the Home Delivered Meals program. Many traditional home delivered meals programs no
    longer deliver hot meals daily, rather they give frozen meals. We have had a number of new clients who need meals delivered
    daily. We also have an increase in the number of clients who request subsidies for payment of their meals.

    The Niles Township Interagency Network, a group of 60 social service, community, government and school representatives,
    continues to meet on a monthly basis to discuss area social service needs. From this group, a mental health subcommittee was
    formed. The Human Services Division is also involved in the Continuum of Care, an area-wide group involved in obtaining
    funding for affordable and homeless housing for the north suburbs.

    This year’s Assist-A-Family provided gifts to 342 children and supplemented the families with gift certificates. Forty families
    received Thanksgiving gift cards funded by the Skokie Rotary and The Women’s Club of Skokie. Over 219 community
    members, organizations and businesses contributed to the Assist-a-Family program.

    The Village works with the Northwest Municipal Conference to provide a neighborhood mediation program. Problems
    include noise, garbage, weeds, harassment and other situations; and neighbors are referred for mediation in hopes of working
    out their differences.

    The Youth Outreach Program has completed a very successful year. The program has grown both in number of tickets and in
    services provided. The program averages 45-70 tickets per month. Community agencies continue to provide community
    services, tobacco and drug education, counseling, truancy, anger management and curfew programs. Our grant from the
    Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority ended in November and we have been unable to find a new grant as yet. There
    will be a budget request to help fund the agencies that provide assistance to the program. This year we have also assigned over
    12 youth to in-patient alcohol and substance abuse treatment ranging from 30 to 180 days of treatment.

    There are presently 292 current STAR registrants, with an average of 175 users per month. The past year has shown an
    increase in the number of turndowns. When there is any growth in the number of users, there are more people turned down for
    rides. The wait for pick-up on both ends is increasing. The number of Skokie seniors over 80 is increasing and those are the
    groups using the bus.

The Management Information Services Division continues to grow in efficiency and productivity considering the relatively small
staff. The MIS staff continues to maintain existing systems and to provide for the support of existing functions and growth into new
technological areas, such as use of our fiber optic network, disk-based backup solutions, wireless networking technologies, GIS, and
electronic document storage and management.

    The FY07 budget included approval of a new MIS position: the Network System Engineer. The position was filled and the new
    staff member began work in November 2006. The Network System Engineer completed a comprehensive review of the Village’s
    technical infrastructure and created initial documentation, including Visio diagrams of both the data and voice networks. He is
    also responsible for working on a number of technical projects to redesign and improve the performance of our network. The
    most significant of these is a project to upgrade the segment of our network that connects us to the Internet, increasing bandwidth
    and providing improved response time when browsing the web. To accomplish this we will utilize the I-Net (fiber optic)
    infrastructure and switch our Internet Service Provider to the Illinois Century Network (ICN). This project is scheduled for
    completion by the end of FY07.

    In response to user concerns over the level of email spam, MIS determined the best solution to be Postini's Perimeter Manager.
    Postini is an email protection service that filters email messages and provides each user with a Message Center where spam and
    viruses are quarantined. The service blocks blatant spam, quarantines possible spam and viruses, and forwards legitimate
    messages to the user’s inbox. Postini was implemented in July across the entire Village. On average, 60% of email is blocked as
    blatant spam, significantly reducing network traffic and unwanted email. User response has been positive, and MIS monitors the
    system on an ongoing basis to ensure the service continues to efficiently block email spam and viruses.

    A major project completed by MIS staff was the implementation of a new network backup system. The new system consists of a
    Disk to Disk to Tape (D2D2T) appliance that replaced our old tape drives and server. The new system speeds up our nightly
    backups, reduces the number of tapes used, and allows for faster restores since data can be restored directly from the disk
    appliance rather than from tape. As part of the project, we upgraded the backup software from Novell to a Windows based
    platform for more efficient administration.

    MIS staff also upgraded RightFax, the Village-wide desktop faxing application, to RightFax 9.0, the latest version of the
    software. The new RightFax software required a Windows-based server, so the old hardware was replaced with a new HP server
    running the Windows 2003 operating system.

    MIS is currently working on a project to replace our current voice mail system with a system that is integrated with our PBX.
    MIS staff met with representatives of the Fire, Police, and Public Works departments to discuss the new system. Based on
    feedback from those meetings we determined the specs for the new system and are working with the Purchasing department to
    develop an RFP. The new system and vendor will be determined through the RFP process, and implementation is planned to
    begin before the end of FY07.

    To assist the Finance department, MIS staff is currently working on a project to identify residents who have not purchased 2006
    vehicle stickers. The Finance Department will be provided the list of names, which will be used to send out letters notifying those
    residents to purchase their 2006 vehicle stickers. This project will be finished by the end of FY07.
    MIS continued to develop and administer training programs and seminars during the current fiscal year to give Village staff the
    necessary tools to work with Village installed software in an effective and efficient manner. In the first half of the year, basic
    level Microsoft Offices classes were held; in the latter half of the year, intermediate and advanced classes were offered. All
    sessions were taught in the training room at Fire Station 17. They were attended by employees from all Village departments.

    MIS staff maintained all the databases utilized by various departments throughout the Village. Over the past year, enhancements
    were made to existing databases to improve access to data and facilitate creation of reports. New databases were developed, most
    extensively for the Police and Fire departments, to automate manual processes.

    Throughout the year, MIS staff provided technical support to all Village employees. The division also upgraded users’ hardware
    and software as needed.

BUDGET ISSUES

The Manager’s Office:

      There are two budget issues for FY08 in the Manager’s Office budget. First, the membership dues represent a net increase of
      $710 due to $810 increase in the Northwest Municipal Conference membership fee, and $150 increase in the Performance
      Measurement program fee. These are both requisite increases passed through to the Village. Reductions totaling $250 were
      made to this line item to offset the increase.

       The travel & meetings accounts represent a net $380 increase. This is due to a $480 increase in the travel cost associated with
       the annual ICMA conference. Reductions of $100 offset this increase.

The Marketing and Public Information Division:

       Beginning with FY08, the Marketing and Public Information Divisions will merge to form one Marketing and Public
       Information Division budget. This consolidation resulted in a net decrease of $24,199. The Public Information Division
       section will no longer appear in the budget, and the $265,773 allocated to this division have been reduced and distributed
       between the new Marketing and Public Information and Multi-Media divisions.

       Due to the consolidation of divisions, the Marketing and Public Information budget is increasing by $167,367. $178,132 was
       transferred to this budget because of the consolidation (line item transfers are described in the Marketing and Public
       Information justification section). The amount transferred into the Multi Media division is explained under the Multi Media
       budget issues.

       There are two budget issues not related to the transfer of funds from the old Public Information division. First, an increase of
       $4,685 is due to scheduled merit and longevity increases. Second, the FY08 budget includes a $1,000 increase for the annual
       employee party. The additional funds are being requested due to increasing attendance at the party and rapid price increases
       among the few banquet locations in the Village.

The Multi Media Division:

       Due to the creation of the new Marketing and Public Information division, a total of $75,501 was transferred into the Multi
       Media budget from the old Public Information budget. The net increase for Multi Media, however, is $74,207 due to
       reductions in existing expenditures. Line item transfers are described in the Multi Media justification section.

The Human Services Administration Division

       There is a $1,102 increase in the salary line item for longevity and F+. There is a $10,000 increase in professional services to
       replace a long standing grant that ended. It will allow the Village to continue to help defray some of the costs that
                                                                                                                                          152

       Metropolitan Family Services, Peer Services and Response Center have in working with the Youth Outreach Program. Both
       Metropolitan Family Services and Peer Services send two workers to court every month to meet with youth and set up
       appointments and explain services. Also, most of the youth we send need to use their sliding scale to pay for services. The
       Village has had this grant for four years and it has ended. The Village will continue to look for other grants. It would support
       $5,000 for Metropolitan Family Services, $5,000 for Peer Services and $3,000 for Response Center.

       Request $850 in Other Commodities line item to provide monies for honorariums and payments for entertainment and speakers
       for senior events at the Smith Center. It is almost impossible to get free speakers anymore who do not want to sell something.

The Social Work Division:

       The only budget increases are salary and longevity totaling $3,000.

The Transportation Division:

       A 3% increase in cost of existing service will be implemented by PACE on May 1, 2007. An additional $8,912 is required to
       cover this increase.

The Home Delivered Meals Division:

       There are three areas of increase: First, $2,182 for salary increase. Secondly, $900 increase to replace thermal bags used to
       keep home delivered meals hot. Only a portion of the bags would be replaced. The new bags would replace several year-old
       thermal bags that have exceeded their useful life. Thirdly, an increase of $250 is included in the budget as additional funding
       for the training breakfasts for volunteer drivers.

The Management Information Systems Division:

       There are several budget issues for FY08:

       A total increase of $38,295 is requested to cover increases in the regular salaries of full-time employees. Of this total, $33,058
       is requested to cover the first full year of salary for the Network Systems Engineer that started during FY07; the remaining
       $5,237 is requested to cover merit increases and longevity for MIS staff.

       A net increase of $1,850 in maintenance services is attributed to several line item increases in maintenance contracts,
       specifically for the Postini spam filtering, firewall maintenance, internet monitoring, Symantec Antivirus and backup software
       maintenance. The net increase was the result of a ($12,500) decrease due to the elimination of the AS400 maintenance, since
       this piece of hardware will be under manufacturer warranty until FY10. An increase of $1,200 is included in the budget to
       cover increased cost of miscellaneous computer supplies used by the division.

MANDATORY INCREASES


0560          Membership Dues            A net increase of $710 is due to an increase of $810 in the Village’s
                                         contribution to the Northwest Municipal Conference (NWMC) and an
                                         increase of $150 in the performance measurement program membership
                                         fee. $150 were shifted to the new Marketing and Public Information due to
                                         the consolidation of these two budgets. A decrease of $100 in ICMA
                                         membership dues as well as the reallocation also offsets the total increase.

0580          Travel and Meetings        A total increase of $480 is included in the budget to better reflect
                                         increased costs of attending the ICMA annual conference. $100 from this
                                         account were shifted to the new Marketing and Public Information budget,
                                         which makes for a net increase of $380.

0612          Computer Supplies          A $100 increase is attributed to a need for additional laser printer toner,
                                         based on prior years’ usage from all Manager’s Office staff.

                                          $600 were removed from this budget due to consolidation of functions.

0640          Books & Publications       $200 – $250 transferred from the Public Information budget; reduced by $50.

Excluding the additional funds transferred from the Public Information and Manager’s Office budgets, when compared withFY07
the Marketing budget represents a net decrease of ($10,765). The following increases are not attributed to the transfer:

0101          Full-time Salaries         An increase of $4,685 is due to scheduled merit and longevity increases.

0330          Other Contractual          An increase of $100 is requested in the Better/Brighter Ideas Group (BIG) line item.
                                         The BIG committee, comprised of approximately 10 staff members from various
                                         departments and divisions, hosts several employee events each year such as a Halloween
                                         party, a summer picnic, an annual employee health fair held in cooperation with the
                                         Health Department, etc., that include refreshments, small prizes and other supplies.

0885          Merit Awards               An increase of $1,000 is requested in the Employee Appreciation Party line item. The
                                         2007 party was very successful and ran approximately $800 over budget. Even greater
                                         attendance is anticipated for the FY08 party. The budget request will provide funds to
                                         keep the per-person cost low and still allow for a nice meal, entertainment and prizes.

NEW AND EXPANDED PROGRAMS

0320          Professional Services:   Requesting a $10,000 increase in professional services to pay three agencies participating
                                       in the Youth Outreach Program: Metropolitan Family Services ($5,000),
                                       Peer Services ($5,000) and Response Center ($3,000) to off-set costs that were
                                       subsidized by a five year grant that has ended. This money helps them defray costs of
                                       staff to attend court and make up for clients being referred at the bottom of their sliding
                                       scale.

0640          Books & Publications     Increase of $122 for books and publications—generally all have increased their prices.

0699          Other Commodities        Increase of $850 to provide monies to pay for entertainment and speakers for the senior
                                       center. It has become impossible to get speakers and entertainment free.

              Transfers                budget, due to reduced funding in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) for

NEW & EXPANDED PROGRAMS

0699          Other Commodities:   Request increase of $1,150: $900 increase for the purchase of 25 thermal bags to be
                                   given to home delivered meals drivers in order to keep the meals warm in the delivery
                                   process. The current bags were purchased eight years ago and are now falling apart and
                                   do not accommodate the size of the meal container. These bags will hold up to ten meals
                                   and keep them warm. They are made for meals programs throughout the country. A
                                   $250 increase in the cost of the training breakfasts for the volunteer drivers is also
                                   included in this line item.

MANDATORY INCREASES

0101          Regular Salaries                  A total increase of $38,295 is requested to cover increases in the regular salaries of
                                                full-time employees. Of this total, $33,058 is requested to cover the full annual
                                                salary of the Network Systems Engineer; the remaining $5,237 is requested to cover
                                                merit increases and increased longevity paid for MIS staff.

0430          Equipment Maintenance Services    A total increase of $1,850 is requested for services that are required to maintain
                                                critical components of the Village’s network infrastructure. Line item increases of
                                                $14,350 are being offset by the elimination of a $12,500 line item. Following is a
                                                break down of individual items:

                                                Internet Monitoring Maintenance – An increase of $2,000 is required for
                                                maintenance of a new Internet monitoring appliance that was installed in FY2007.
                                                This new appliance replaced our old software which was discontinued and no
                                                longer supported by the vendor.

                                                Firewall Maintenance – An increase of $1,000 is needed to cover the cost of
                                                maintenance on our existing firewall which renews every two years and was
                                                therefore not budgeted for in FY2007.

                                                Postini Spam Filter – An increase of $5,000 is needed to cover the annual cost of
                                                maintenance for our new spam filtering service.

                                                Symantec Anti-Virus Protection – An increase of $1,150 is needed to cover the cost
                                                of maintenance for additional Symantec Anti-Virus software licenses purchased in
                                                FY2007.

                                                ARCServe Backup Software Maintenance - An increase of $5,200 is needed to
                                                cover the cost of maintenance for our current backup software which renews every
                                                two years and was therefore not budgeted for in FY2007.

                                         AS/400 Printers and Peripherals – This line item was eliminated as a result of
                                         hardware upgrades made during FY2007. The purchase of two line printers and an
                                         LTO tape drive for the IBM i5 allowed us to cancel the maintenance contracts for
                                         the old AS/400 printers and tape back-up unit resulting in the elimination of this
                                         $12,500 line item.

0530          Telephone and Telegraph    An overall decrease of $4,600 is proposed for services that are required to maintain
                                         critical components of the Village’s telecommunications infrastructure. Following
                                         is a break down of individual items:

                                         Internet Access – A decrease of $3,500 resulted from switching our Internet service
                                         provider from Qwest to Illinois Century Network (ICN).

                                         I-Net Monthly Fees – A decrease of $2,100 resulted from the I-Net Consortium
                                         replacing its DS3 circuit with a new service from AT&T called Opti-man.

                                         Black Box/Nortech Service Calls – An increase of $1,000 is needed to cover the
                                         cost of service calls by our telephone equipment support vendor.

0612          Computer Supplies          An increase of $1,200 is requested to cover additional toner needed for the HP
                                         Color LaserJet Printer located in the MIS Division. The color printer located in the
                                         MIS Division is used by all employees at Village Hall and its use continues to rise.
                                         The approximate cost to replace the toner cartridges in the color printer is $1,200.

PROGRAM REVIEW
The Finance Department's programs can be classified into several categories. The first category is fiscal, the second is operational,
and the third is planning. Each category is addressed below.

Fiscal: As of May 1, 2007 the Village has $41,815,605 in outstanding general obligation debt. In conjunction with the Village’s
financial advisor, this debt will be monitored for opportunities to refund all or any portions of an outstanding bond issue to achieve
real dollar savings to the Village. Should the interest rate market dictate, within limits prescribed by the Internal Revenue Service, the
Village may consider refunding more of its debt during Fiscal 2008. In all, the Village has issued refunding bonds five times and
those bonds were issued in 1994, 1998, 1999, 2002, and 2003.

FINANCE DEPARTMENT

The Village anticipates incurring debt during Fiscal 2008 for purposes of funding its commitment to the redevelopment of the former
Pfizer site in Downtown Skokie as well as funding the property owners’ portion of the costs of the West Dempster Street improvement
project and the Lincolnwood Drive improvement project which will be repaid through a special service area (SSA) taxes. The debt for
the former Pfizer site, which is being redeveloped by Forest City, is anticipated to be in the amount of $12,100,000 and the West
Dempster Street and Lincolnwood Drive SSA borrowings are anticipated at $1,800,000 and $200,000, respectively. Other than these
three purposes, the Village will evaluate outstanding bond issues for possible refunding opportunities.

The Finance Department also plays in key roll in the ongoing monitoring of the Village’s fiscal condition by providing the Village
Board and Village Manager with periodic major revenue updates and annual preparation of multi-year financial forecasts as part of the
budget process.

Operational: The Finance Department will actively: 1) monitor the status of the Village’s two active TIF Districts, the Downtown
TIF (established in 1990) and the Downtown Science and Technology TIF (established in 2005); 2) monitor the debt market for
refinancing opportunities for the Village’s debt; 3) prepare an official statement (the marketing tool by which investors are informed
about the Village and its economic and fiscal health) for bonds to be issued; 4) coordinate adjudication of citations with the
Corporation Counsel’s Office to maximize compliance with the Village Code; 5) explore the utilization of the Administrative Hearing
process for parking citations; and 6) actively pursue compliance with vehicle registration requirements of the Village Code by
continuing the vehicle license scofflaw program.

Planning: During Fiscal 2008 it is anticipated that the Finance Department will play a key role in analyzing and advising the Board
and Village Manager regarding major redevelopment issues facing the Village. The Downtown TIF was the subject of a settlement
agreement in the early 1990’s. The TIF, which was expected to have completed its redevelopment projects by 2005 and which was to
have been terminated in that year by agreement with School District 69, was extended to its full 23 year life by Village Board action
in April 2005. As a condition of the extension, the Village disconnected parcels that were already developed in order to provide cash
flow to all taxing jurisdictions. In addition to the extension of the Downtown TIF, the Village established a second TIF in the

Downtown area in October 2005, the Downtown Science and Technology TIF, to provide funding for the redevelopment of the former
Pfizer site which will be developed by Forest City. The boundaries of the Downtown Science and Technology TIF were established
to include an area larger than the Pfizer site such that an anticipated Downtown Skokie station of the Skokie Swift rapid transit line
could be included in the TIF, thus providing the funding mechanism for the anticipated station project which will exceed $10 million.
The Village has also received grant funding for the Swift Station project’s design and construction. The two TIFs will require careful
monitoring of financial status by the Finance Department to assure compliance with Statutory laws as well as compliance with
understandings with taxing jurisdictions and redevelopment agreement provisions.

BUDGET ISSUES
The Finance Department's overall budget has increased by .4% from the prior fiscal year. The overall increase is due to the following
factors:

Personnel Costs: The progression of employees through the steps and achievement of longevity pay resulted in budgeted increases
totaling $4,600.

Contractual Services: This expenditure category will have an increase in the amount of $8,092. The predominant reason for the
increase is due to the implementation of an enhanced vehicle license renewal program. The program will replace the previous multi-
part/multi-purpose renewal application mailer which was generated by the Village in favor of renewal forms generated through the
services of an outside firm. Utilization of an outside firm to prepare the annual vehicle license renewal forms will take advantage of
technology that would be cost prohibitive for the Village to purchase for this single purpose and result in forms that are more legible
and user friendly.

Materials and Supplies: The slight increase in this expenditure category of $155 is predominantly the result of anticipated increases in
office supplies including laser printer cartridges.

Capital Outlay: This expenditure category has a decrease of $9,000. This expenditure category fluctuates based on departmental

the daily deposits.

NEW AND EXPANDED PROGRAMS

0320          Professional Services        $11,887 is requested for costs of enhancing the Village’s vehicle license
                                           renewal forms. The Village currently utilizes an NCR mailer that contains
                                           both a two-part application form as well as a return envelope. Due to the
                                           thickness of the multi-part/multi-purpose mailer, the print quality of the
                                           application was affected by the need to use thinner paper stock that
                                           resulted in bleed-thru of license renewal information that was pre-printed
                                           on the reverse side of the application form. Utilization of an outside firm
                                           to prepare the annual vehicle license renewal will take advantage of
                                           technology that would be cost prohibitive for the Village to purchase for
                                           this single purpose. The Village will provide the vendor with
                                           computerized renewal information and the vendor will print the forms and
                                           insert the application and a return envelope into a mailer and deliver the
                                           renewals to the Post Office.

PROGRAM REVIEW

Administration Division

In FY08 the Department will continue to refine and improve procedures to provide better service to the community, meet our goals of
protecting the health, safety, and welfare of residents and businesses, and guide the development and redevelopment of land. The
Community Development Department is a one-stop service center for handling building, planning, and zoning issues.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT
The Community Development Department works with other departments and divisions on cooperative programs to share expertise,
information and personnel resources. In addition to redevelopment projects such as Downtown, West Dempster Street, and the East
Industrial Area that require interdisciplinary services from numerous departments, Staff continues to work with the Engineering
Division on a study of the roadway system around the Old Orchard Shopping Center, focusing on determining necessary
improvements to Old Orchard Road, Skokie Boulevard, the Edens Expressway ramps and bridge at Old Orchard Road, and key
intersections. This study will continue into FY08. Community Development staff also worked with a consulting team in FY05 to
develop a new Downtown plan, Downtown 2020, that made land use and transportation system recommendations to integrate a Skokie
Swift station into the downtown. This study is now being continued by the Staff Downtown Taskforce appointed by the Village
Manager. In FY06 the Mayor appointed the Committee on Downtown Development (CDD) to, “examine issues that relate to the
future development of the Downtown area.” The recommendations of the CDD, Independent Merchants of Downtown Skokie
(IMODS), and Downtown 2020 will be incorporated into the Comprehensive Plan and will provide a solid guide for future
development. Staff will work on the development of the Comprehensive Plan amendment in FY08 for its review and approval by the
Plan Commission and Board of Trustees. The Community Development Department also worked with the City of Evanston and the
Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) on a market study of potential Skokie Swift ridership, which will be completed in FY07.
Significant effort was made by the Department to obtain grant funds for the design and construction of a Swift station in the
downtown. In FY07 Community Development and the Engineering Division started working with a consulting team to design the
station and improvements to the surrounding support areas. This study will be completed in FY08 and construction of the station is
expected to start shortly there after the bid process is completed. In FY07 the West Dempster Street Area streetscape program was
completed. In FY08, major emphasis will be placed on guiding the redevelopment of the Science + Technology Park by Forest City
Enterprises, the redevelopment of key Downtown sites, continuing to deal with issues related to the construction of the Holocaust
Memorial Museum, and working with the Engineering Division on redevelopment plans for the East Industrial Area north of Oakton
Street.

In FY07 Community Development Department staff worked on a Certificate of Occupancy Renewal Program to replace the Business
License program for most businesses. This program would require that all businesses in the Village obtain an annual Certificate of
Occupancy renewal to assure that they are operating in compliance with Zoning Chapter requirements. The program will be
implemented in FY08.

A review of the activities and accomplishments of other individual divisions of the Community Development Department is as
follows:

Planning Division

FY08 has been another busy year for development activity, indicating the continuation of a strong local economy. Staff continued to
work on the following major projects that were approved in previous years: The Metropolitan of Skokie, a mixed use
residential/commercial development at Oakton Street and Niles Avenue; Optima at Old Orchard Woods, a condominium development
on Woods Drive; the redevelopment of the northeast portion of Westfield Old Orchard; the Holocaust Memorial Foundation Museum
on Woods Drive; the continuation of the Alley Vacation Program; the redesign and redevelopment of the Dempster-Swift Shopping
Center at Dempster Street and Bronx Avenue; the Assyrian Cultural Center at Church Street and Niles Center Road; The Astoria at
Main, a mixed use residential/commercial development at Main Street and the Skokie Swift tracks; and Downtown 2020, the new
Sector A Area Plan for Downtown Skokie.

In FY07, the most significant project of the Planning Divisions was the creation of the Illinois Science + Technology Park (IS+TP),
which has redeveloped the former Pfizer facility into a state of the art biotech, nanotech, and agritech research park with employment
to far exceed what the site had produced at its height when G.D. Searle had occupied the site. The redevelopment involved the
creation of a new zoning district, a zoning map amendment, a subdivision, and site plan approval that allows for a multiphased
development. Final design and engineering for the new Skokie Swift station at Oakton Street began in FY07 and is crucial to the
success of the IS+TP. Construction on the station is expected to begin in FY08. Other major projects that were reviewed and
approved through the public hearing process included: two Comprehensive Plan amendments, one to update Appendix C – North
Suburban Housing Activity Study and the other two create Appendix D – Multifamily Housing Study; a new Swift Childcare at 8260
Elmwood, and a Brandy’s limited service restaurant with a drive-through at 3517 Dempster Street. In total, Planning Division staff
reviewed over 29 new Plan Commission cases, and it is anticipated that the strong development trend will continue in FY08.

In FY03, the Planning Division initiated a pilot program to vacate unopened and unimproved alleys in the Village. The purpose of the
program is to vacate these alleys that are unnecessary for Village transportation or access needs and present numerous problems and
costs to the Village. This program has a goal of vacating ten alleys each year. There are over 183 unimproved alleys in the Village,
123 of which were identified for vacation. Ten alleys and one street were vacated in FY05, and the program continued in FY06 with
the vacation of 48 additional alleys and in FY07 with the vacation of 14 additional alleys. The Planning Division expects to continue
the program in FY08 with the vacation of approximately 20 more alleys.

Planning Division will continue to update and develop the Community Development web pages. In FY07 Community Development
Staff has worked with MGP, the Village’s GIS consultant to integrate our parcel map into the GIS system. We expect to continue to
assist MPG and the MIS Department on the implementation of the GIS system in FY08.

Finally, in FY07 the Planning Division continued to work with other departments and divisions to develop and implement
“neighborhood” plans to improve commercial areas and their interface with adjacent residential areas. Work continued on the
Downtown 2020 plan for Sector A and will continue in FY08 to synthesize the recently approved plans for the Illinois Science +
Technology Park, the findings of the Committee on Downtown Development, input from the Independent Merchants of Downtown
Skokie (IMODS), and the findings of the Staff Downtown Task Force into a single comprehensive Downtown plan. Planning will
also update other sections of the Comprehensive Plan, including analyzing and updating Appendix B – 2003 Citizen Survey with the
results of the 2006 survey data and updating both Chapter 5 – Transportation and Chapter 6 – Housing.

Building and Zoning Division

The construction emphasis continued to be in residential multi-unit projects. Over five hundred new condominium units have been
approved for occupancy. Much of this activity occurred at the Optima development on Woods Drive, the Siena on Skokie Blvd, the
Metropolitan (4953 Oakton) and Skokie Gardens (8814-56 Niles Center). Under construction is a thirty unit condominium at 8255
Skokie Blvd. An eighteen unit mixed use development plan at 4844 Main was approved for construction. Fifty three permits have
been issued for new single family home construction and thirty five for single family teardowns. Three hundred thirty nine homes
received permits for additions or remodeling at a valuation of over fifteen million dollars.

Condominium conversion approvals continued in 2006. Locations included 9445 Kenton (44), 8610-14 Crawford (16), 8154-56
Keating (14), 4633 Madison (11), and 8350 Kimball (9). Ninety four rental units have converted this year. Under review is a large
proposed conversion of one hundred twenty units at Old Orchard Court apartments northeast of Old Orchard Road and Skokie
Boulevard.

New construction highlights in the commercial and industrial area include the Forest City redevelopment site on Searle Pkwy, the
Westfield Old Orchard redevelopment project, the Oxford–Waterford Hotel at 9599 Skokie Blvd, the Holiday Inn at 5300 Touhy Ave.
and the Holocaust museum project on Woods Dr. Two major industrial renovations at 3401 and 3601 Howard Street are under design
review.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT
For calendar year 2006 over three thousand five hundred permits were issued. Permit fees exceeded one million three hundred
thousand dollars with construction valuation in excess of one hundred twenty eight million dollars. These construction levels represent
the third highest year on record.

Property Standards Division

The Division is responsible for the enforcement of the Village adopted 2003 ICC Property Maintenance Code. Our objective is to
provide comprehensive code enforcement of all existing structures and properties in the Village. To meet this objective, staff conducts
systematic interior inspections of all multi-unit buildings and exterior inspections of all commercial, industrial and residential
buildings. Citizen complaints are handled through a Request for Service Program. It also administers the CDBG Home Improvements
Program. All Division inspection staff is ICC certified. Code enforcement activity is entered and tracked through the HTE computer
tracking system.

This year twenty nine hundred cases were processed which is a twenty percent increase over last year. Approximately one fourth of
these cases involved multi-unit inspections conducted every eighteen months. All cases generated over four thousand inspections and
reinspections. The Request for Service or complaint program continued to be an active program with over four hundred complaints.
Staff continued to devote considerable time responding to complaints of dwelling unit code violations, illegal basement apartments,
vehicle and boat storage, illegal home occupations and over-occupancy. Each complaint is investigated and enforcement procedures
are followed when code violations are verified.

The Graffiti Removal Program handled one hundred nineteen incidents, a sixty percent increase. Staff continues to work closely with
the Police Department, property owners and a removal contractor on a swift removal as required by the Village Code.

The Townhouse Inspection Program inspected four hundred sixty three unit exteriors this year. This Program entails significant staff
time in enforcing compliance of common repairs such as new parking lot paving and new sidewalks. This is due to the lack of
management associations for these older town house developments.

The CDBG funded Home Improvements Program provided grants and loan interest subsidies to seventeen owners for thirty one
projects.

The Administrative Hearing Program adjudicated 684 citations for code violations, nearly identical to last year. The Program has
provided an effective system for code compliance. Seventy percent of the citations achieved compliance. Only four requests for
appeals were filed.

BUDGET ISSUES

The following budget issues are presented for consideration in FY08:

The Chicago Metropolitan agency for Planning (CMAP), formerly Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission (NIPC), has requested
a $743 increase (5%) in its contribution from the Village. This increase in membership dues is similar to previous requests. The total
contribution to CMAP will be $15,611 for FY08.

An increase in Professional Services of in the amount of $10,000 is requested by the Building Division for plan review and code
consulting services. This is due to anticipated high rise construction development projects on Woods Drive and at the Old Orchard
Shopping Center.

$5,288 is requested to reinstate the seasonal Planning Intern in the Planning budget. This position is necessary to assist professional
staff with the large amount of Comprehensive Plan amendments as will as Sign Code, Appearance Code, and Subdivisions Ordinance
revisions that need to be complete this year.

MANDATORY INCREASES

0580   Travel and Meetings   $459 is requested to cover expected changes regarding new mandatory continuing
                             education requirements for certified planners (AICP). A further increase in the FY09
                             budget might be needed. The Planning division will phase-in implementation of this
                             program in FY08 and FY09. The Village requires that all planners achieve certification
                             within 2 years of hire. The increase is more than offset by a decrease in 0430 Equipment
                             Maintenance Services.

0611   Postage               $180 is requested to meet increasing postage expenses. Money was transferred from
                             other accounts to cover these costs in FY07. The increase is offset by an equal decrease
                             in 0612 Computer Supplies.

NEW AND EXPANDED PROGRAMS

0103   Seasonal Salaries     $5,288 is requested to reinstate one seasonal Planning Intern position. The cost reflects
                             12 weeks (450 hours) of work at the A3A level. This seasonal position is needed to assist
                             professional staff with the large amount of Comprehensive Plan amendments as well as
                             Sign Code, Appearance Code, and Subdivisions Ordinance revisions that need to be
                             completed this year.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT
GOALS
It is the goal of the Skokie Health Department to promote and protect public health and safety and to enhance the quality of life in our
community through effective Environmental, Animal Control, Personal Health Services and Health Education programs.

DIVISION DESCRIPTIONS
The Administration Division (3 FT, $222,037) formulates, approves, and directs health policy, develops the departmental budget,
approves procedural changes, provides administrative support for departmental divisions, develops educational materials, provides for
health education and public relations needs for the Department, assesses the health needs of the community and plans programs
accordingly. Health promotion programs, such as Nutrition Motivation Clinics, Blood Pressure Clinics, AIDS Education, Safety
Education, Immunization Program, and Community Health Education Programs have been developed by administrative staff.

Grant applications are developed and submitted for Health Department programs and fees are charged for some services. This resulted
in $290,321 in funding for the Health Department during the past year. This revenue is used to partially offset the cost of providing
services. The following is a partial breakdown of this year’s projected funding from grants and fees:

       Local Health Protection Grant:     $63,201                   Emergency Preparedness Grant: $72,000
       Tobacco Education Grant:           $21,838                   Vision & Hearing Grant:        $4,500
       Childhood Lead Grant:               $1,000                   Tanning Inspection Grant:        $300
       Birth & Death Certificate Fees:    $52,000                   Flu & Pneumonia Shot Fees:    $66,000
       Lipid Screening Fees:               $9,500                   Body Comp. Analysis Fees:      $1,200

The Environmental Division (5.1 FT, 1S, $310,821) protects the public from the hazards of food-borne illness through routine
inspection of all food establishments and re-inspection as necessary, investigates environmental hazards on a complaint basis, and
performs weekly inspection of all operating swimming pools and spas at 23 locations. Water samples are collected monthly to assure
a safe water supply for Skokie residents. Testing and consultations are offered regarding carbon monoxide levels and other
environmental hazards. Environmental staff conducts licensing inspections and food service inspections at local day care centers.
Day care homes are routinely inspected. Environmental staff provides educational services to business and community groups.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT
The Personal Health Division (3FT, 3PT, $367,010) provides nursing visits for the purpose of supervision and coordination of care.
Public health nurses administer immunizations at regularly scheduled clinics. Other children's health services include lead screening
and well child exams. Chronic diseases are screened through clinics such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, lipid testing, adult
hearing, and hemoccult test kits. Monthly inspections of nursing home facilities are performed in alternation with the environmental
staff. Nursing staff also inspect day care homes. Children are screened for vision and hearing difficulties in all private/parochial
schools in the Village. Replacement of blood products is accomplished through blood donor clinics held throughout the year. The
communicable disease nurse investigates the occurrence of 71 diseases required by law to be reported to the Local Health Authority.
Consultation on health matters and health literature is provided to Skokie residents. Screenings are provided routinely in the Health
Department's offices during regular business hours. Clinics are also scheduled upon request at various other sites throughout the
Village such as churches, synagogues, businesses, clubs, and other organizations. Weekend and evening screening programs are also
available.

The Animal Control Division (3.9 FT, $232,107) enforces all Skokie ordinances pertaining to domestic animals through daily patrols
and investigation of citizen complaints. Staff assist citizens in regard to wildlife and rodent control concerns. Citations may be issued
for non-compliance with animal control ordinances. Animal control staff provide educational programs to the community on request.

PROGRAM REVIEW
The Health Department continues to emphasize outside funding as much as possible. Outside funding includes grant programs such as
Emergency Preparedness, blood lead testing, stop-smoking clinics, and various health education services. Other outside funding
includes fees charged for services such as: lipid screening, body composition analysis, blood lead tests, and birth and death records.
The Department is an approved Medicare provider. This allows us to bill nearly $66,000 annually for flu and pneumonia shots.

The Administration Division of the Health Department explores new ideas to improve the health and environment of the community.

The Health Department received Emergency “STARCOM” Radios from the Illinois Terrorism Task Force. This will be part of a
dedicated communications system facilitating statewide communications between Police, Fire, Health and other Responders.

The Director continued his involvement with various committees and training activities. He is actively involved in planning a
diversity training program for Village of Skokie employees. He is on committees that review potentially hazardous homes; help plan
Emergency preparedness drills for the Village; review personnel policies; review progress with the new GIS system; and the IPLAN
Committee to develop a long range health plan for Skokie.

The Director attended the Illinois Public Health Association Annual Meeting where he accepted an Award for “Pioneer in Smoke Free
Advocacy.” Trustee Gelder was also given an award for his efforts in support of Skokie’s smoking ordinance.

Many hours were spent preparing and participating in a March Emergency Exercise. This event simulated the deliberate release of
radioactive Cesium 137 into a food source at a hotel. The Health Department conducted a simultaneous pharmaceutical distribution
clinic using current staff and many volunteers.

In cooperation with the Cook County Sheriff’s Department, the Health Department served as a drop-off site where citizens could
dispose of their unwanted medicines during the month of May. The Department collected 3,239 “containers” of medicine.

School District #219 requested that the Skokie Health Department work with the regional school superintendents and nurses to help
them develop pandemic flu emergency plans. The Health Director met with the Regional School Superintendents to discuss Pandemic
Flu the District participated with the Village in a recent Pandemic Flu Table Top Exercise.

The Director presented an ordinance change limiting the number of cats in a single family home to four and the number in multi-
family homes to two.

The Health Director, the Environmental Supervisor and several other Village officials spent time in November researching, arranging
meetings and attending meetings regarding the last known private water well and private septic system in Skokie. Our objective is to
ultimately connect two industrial properties to public water and sewer.

The Environmental Health Division offers one of the most comprehensive programs in the state in addition to some of the most
qualified staff to be found. They are involved in numerous programs and have implemented many ideas to improve the level of
environmental protection in Skokie. Several examples of their diverse activities follow:

The inspectors worked with a movie theater regarding rodent problems

Many West Nile Virus positive mosquito pools were identified from the five traps we test in Skokie. Over the summer and fall
inspectors found numerous possible mosquito breeding sources.

The environmental specialists conducted temporary food service inspections at the Festival of Cultures, the Fourth of July activities,
and numerous other events. This type of inspection requires staff to sometimes work weekends, evenings, and holidays.

Several of the environmental health staff, along with most other Health Department staff, attended NIMS (National Incident
Management System) training sponsored by the Fire Department. This training is required by the Department’s bioterrorism grant.

The Personal Health Division also provides a myriad of services. Some of these include providing flu shots to residents; hearing and
vision screening in schools; assisting residents in the proper use of home medical testing equipment; counseling diabetic and heavy
citizens on nutrition and dieting; and providing screening programs such as blood pressure, cholesterol, lipid profile, adult hearing,
body composition analysis, Counseling and investigation of sexually transmitted disease cases and hemoccult testing.

After a cholesterol test an elderly man was counseled extensively and through resulting lifestyle changes he was able to reverse
existing cardiovascular damage and avoid heart surgery.

The public health nurses provided TB testing to fire department personnel.

Health Department staff worked with three nursing homes that had experienced outbreaks of diarrhea and vomiting among residents
and staff. Inspections were conducted, patient histories taken, and stool samples submitted. Lab results came back positive for

Norwalk virus.

During Day Care Home licensing inspections, the public health nurse found an unlicensed home with two women caring for 11 kids.
This is a violation of caregiver/child ratio standards.

Duty changes of two of the public health nurses were approved in the FY07 budget. One nurse added Sexually Transmitted Disease
(STD) investigation duties to her job description. The Communicable Disease nurse continued with other CD duties and will also
serve as the Department’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator. Funding for this change came from the Health Department’s
Bioterrorism Grant.

The response to the emergency preparedness coordinator’s initial request for volunteer nurses to assist the Health Department in an
emergency was encouraging. Twelve nurses responded to an article that appeared in “NewSkokie.”

Health Department staff spent a great deal of time preparing for and conducting three flu clinics for Skokie residents. More than
3,200 vaccinations were administered.

Health Department staff are working with the local high schools in an attempt to prevent an outbreak of pertussis. Eighteen cases
were seen in the community through November, including ten in the two high schools. With the cooperation of the Illinois
Department of Public Health, we were able to offer pertussis vaccine to many eligible students.

The Animal Control Division is responsible for fulfilling more individual service requests than possibly any division of its size in the
Village. The three animal control officers annually handle over 2,000 requests for service and over 10,000 calls and consultations
from citizens. Some activities become routine but many are interesting or unusual.

During a multiple dog survey, the animal control officer found that a resident had purchased a new puppy to replace a dog that had
died. This was a violation of the temporary exemption to the code that allowed him to keep his three dogs. No fines were issued
because he told the Hearing Officer that one of his dogs was now staying with a neighbor.

                                                DEPARTMENT NARRATIVE
HEALTH DEPARTMENT

The animal control officers continued to investigate complaints of ground feeding at the Skokie Swift station. Someone regularly
dumped seed at the turn-around. When found, the officers removed the seed. They continued to patrol the area until they caught
someone in the act. Citations were issued, fines were levied and feeding activity in this location has greatly decreased.

One of the animal control officers attended a week long National Animal Control Association training course. The course covered
animal behavior, laws and the legal system, capture techniques, animal identification, shelter operations, report writing, officer
safety/crisis intervention, courtroom testimony, and interview/interrogation techniques.

A woman lost her pet python in her car when it escaped from its carrying bag. The Police and Animal Control could not find the
reptile. The owner took the car to a mechanic who found the snake unharmed in a hidden compartment of the car.

An Animal Control Officer received a call to remove an opossum family from under a burned deck. She learned the homeowner had
set a fire under the deck to get the opossums to leave but had burned the deck as well. The unharmed opossums left unharmed.

The weekend “on call” animal control officers are answering more and more calls. In one 24 hour period, the officer was paged 12
times.

A resident called the Health Department to report a large lizard in the bushes next to his doorstep. An animal control officer found a
Bearded Dragon hiding in the bushes. She impounded the lizard and turned it over to a local pet shop.

The animal control staff continues to combat rodent infestations at numerous locations around the Village. A number of these are
near construction sites.

BUDGET ISSUES
The Administrative Division increased its budget by $3,951. The “Regular Salaries” line increased by $4,134. This is due to normal
pay step and longevity increases.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT

The “Travel & Meetings” line decreased $350 due to decreased costs for attending the APHA annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
The Environmental Health Division decreased its budget by $13,468 over last year. The “Regular Salary” line decreased $12,269.
This is due to the replacement of two long term employees at lower steps.
The “Seasonal Salary” line decreased $1,333 to more accurately reflect the number of hours worked during the summer.

The Personal Health Division increased its budget by $557. The “Part-Time Salaries” line decreased $3,362 due to the replacement of
a long term employee with one at a lower salary step.

The “Medical and Laboratory Supplies” line has increased $3,186. This is to cover the increased cost of flu and pneumonia vaccines.

The “Other Equipment” line reflects a $500 request to purchase toddler car safety seats for the Department’s car seat loaner program.
These seats will replace ones that have reached the end of their useful life.

The Animal Control Division’s budget increased $1,700. The “Regular Salaries” line increased by $2,975. This is due to normal
employee step and longevity increases.

The “Professional Services” line was decreased $1,000. This reflects lower expenditures to board and relocate lost/abandoned
animals.

The “Chemicals” line increased $250 to cover the cost of rodenticide for the Health Department’s abatement program.

                                                   longevity.

    0320      Professional Services                A $206 increase is needed to cover additional hourly costs for the
                                                   supplemental nursing staff.

    0616      Medical & Laboratory Supplies        The cost of flu and pneumonia vaccine continues to rise. An 8% increase
                                                   is expected for the coming year. The resulting cost will be an additional
                                                   $3,186 to this line.

    0799      Other Equipment                      $500 is requested for replacement of toddler safety seats that are past their
                                                   useful life expectancy. These seats are loaned to residents such as
                                                   grandparents in temporary need of car safety seats. A number of the
                                                   Department’s seats have reached the manufacturer’s expiration date and
                                                   must be replaced. This replacement will allow the Village to continue this

     1.     The Administrative Division (4 FT, $423,177) creates and administers department policy, plans and organizes
            department activities and budgets for efficient economic operation of all department divisions. In addition, the
            administration provides motivation for all department employees and ensures growth through training and education.

     2.     The Fire Prevention Bureau (6 FT/1 PT, $444,076) acts to control the loss of life and property through plan review,
            inspection, hazardous material monitoring and public education programs. Fires are investigated, codes are enforced
            and data is collected and analyzed for evaluation and planning.

     3.     The Firefighting Division (97 FT, $5,259,107) protects persons and property through fire suppression, hazardous
            materials mitigation, hazards control, commercial inspections and public education activities. In addition, the division
            assists the Fire Prevention Bureau and the Emergency Medical Service Division with manpower and equipment.

       4.      The Emergency Medical Service Division (13 FT, $3,843,244) provides pre-hospital medical care throughout the
               Village. The division ensures that a sufficient number of trained Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT), licensed
               paramedics, life sustaining drugs and modern medical and trauma equipment are available for immediate delivery of
               care to all individuals in the Village.

       5.      Fire E911 ($138,597) reflects E911 related expenditures that are predominately shared with the Police Department.


PROGRAM REVIEW

The Administrative Division has continued the department's participation in a number of village-wide initiatives as well as intra
departmental programs. Work is ongoing in our continued maintenance of the accreditation status through the Commission on Fire
Accreditation International and our Insurance Service Office (ISO) Class I rating. The department continues to focus on
implementing any changes and improvements identified in our accreditation and ISO evaluation reports. Our involvement and
membership in the Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training Academy (NIPSTA) continues as planned. NIPSTA’s build out of its
facility remains ongoing with new classes and programs offered on a regular basis.

The Fire Prevention Bureau continues to participate in the village-wide commercial inspection program. Public Education programs
are reaching school age children, the general public and the business community. Hazardous materials monitoring and control
continue to remain effective. In addition, the Fire Prevention Bureau has continued to test and record hydrant flows and review
structural and fire protection plans for all construction in the Village. Compliance under the residential sprinkler ordinance continues,
mandating all newly constructed single family residences be outfitted with residential sprinkler systems. The Fire Prevention Bureau
is continuing a comprehensive public education program, including a certified Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program. Additionally,
in cooperation with the Building Department, a more active participation in multi-family residential building inspections to ensure life
safety compliance will be implemented. The Fire Prevention Bureau is continuing its expansion of general Fire Prevention, Code
Enforcement and Fire Inspection programs. Many of the programs are designed around new computer technology which continues to
be instrumental in providing the Bureau with improved data entry capabilities, improved statistics, data for tracking incidents,
suspicious fire activity, hydrant information and enhanced pre planning to name a few. Additionally, the Fire Prevention Bureau
continues tracking and charging for all billable false fire alarms and for annual alarm user permits. The program is managed by the
department using computer software.

FIRE DEPARTMENT

The Firefighting Division is continuing to conduct all training at the Fire Fighter III level and to promote Fire Officer I and II
Certification through State Fire Marshal conducted courses. Measurable minimum personnel standards are in use and are proving
extremely helpful with new recruits as well as seasoned veterans. Work to revise and/or replace antiquated standard operational
guidelines has been ongoing. The drill tower has been providing a state-of-the-art platform for fire training evolutions, tactical
scenarios and live fire training. Additionally, new computerized simulation software is being used to further enhance ongoing fire
ground tactics and strategy.

The EMS Division has continued its popular Citizen CPR Program. During FY07 ten (10) classes were conducted and 73 people
received participation cards. Since its inception, 1,255 citizens have been trained. Four (4) firefighters became licensed paramedics.
All existing Department Paramedics and EMTs completed their required annual continuing education. Per ordinance, we continue
billing for all EMS services where treatment and transportation were provided. The program is managed through an outside agency.

BUDGET ISSUES

Reflected in this year's budget are enhancements to the existing wireless computer based network. Operational for over one year, the
infrastructure has significantly enhanced our EMS documentation, Fire Prevention pre-plans and Computer Aided Dispatching (CAD)
information. Further expansion of the system will include Global Information System (GIS) technologies. Health and wellness
continues to be of primary concern. The department will continue its ongoing health risk reduction program and is looking forward to
our implementation of a cooperative wellness/fitness program of all on-duty personnel. The department will continue to be faced with
expanding the caliber of training administered and our abilities to properly handle acts of potential homeland terrorism including
nuclear, biological-hazard, and chemical incidents.

The Administration Division is continuously reviewing our Accreditation and ISO ratings and the necessary requirements by which to
maintain them. In 2006, the department hosted an on-site inspection visit and once again received Accreditation through the
Commission on Fire Accreditation International, recently renamed Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE).

The Fire Prevention Bureau will once again plan our annual open house event. Our plan is to focus on fire safety and EMS. Public
education awareness programs will continue to be offered to residents and the business community in the Village. Fire prevention
officers will attend continuing education programs that will enhance their knowledge of fire prevention. The FPB will enhance their
partnership with the Safe Schools Committee to assist in the event of a crisis. Members of the Fire Investigation Team continue to
receive mandatory continuing education hours on an annual basis. Use of software and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) will
assist in tracking false fire alarms, fire alarm user permits and provide clearer and more concise pre-plans.

The Firefighting Division will continue to ensure the utmost preparedness of the general work force and of specialty teams. Efforts to
enhance the quality and type of training is ongoing. The training tower is an essential element of our training and is required for the
department's prestigious ISO Class I rating and is recommended by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International.

The EMS Division will continue moving forward with a computerized format for all EMS documentation. The division will continue
to train all medical personnel, maintain the in-service status of all equipment, continue EMS billing and maintain the popular Citizen
CPR Program. In addition, the Division will continue its expansion of EMS equipment and lifesaving capabilities with the purchase of
a new monitor/defibrillator and pulse oximetry.

MANDATORY INCREASES



0230     Employee Pensions                   This line item represents the expense for the Fire Chief pension. The increase of
                                             $9,577 is attributable to this line item not being budgeted for in the previous fiscal
                                             year.

0320     Professional Services               An increase of $950 is due to the annual leasing cost to replace a Village owned
                                             copy machine at Station #17. The existing machine is worn and has outlived its
                                             useful life, requiring expensive ongoing maintenance costs.


0430     Equipment Maintenance Services      An increase of $500 is due to maintenance costs for administrative laptop
                                             computers which have had the manufacturers warranty expire.

0560     Membership Dues                     An increase of $663 is due to the necessary adjustments to the fees associated with
                                             the various civic organizations and memberships dues currently attended by the
                                             administration.

0580     Travel and Meetings                 An increase of $355 is due to a small increase in the cost of two annually attended
                                             conferences by Chief officers.

0590     Training                            An increase of $500 is due to the mandatory assessment fee increase of the State of
                                             Illinois Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) agreement.

0612     Computer Supplies                   An increase of $3,000 is due to the increase cost of routine computer printing
                                             supplies, ink cartridges, FAX machine ribbons and scanner supplies. In addition,
                                             new software to assist in tracking and managing the ongoing wellness/fitness
                                             program is requested.

DIVISION DESCRIPTIONS

Administrative Services is divided into three primary components:

Administrative Services (P50: 22 FT/39 PT, $2,073,100) includes the Office of the Chief, as well as Training, Field Services, Records,
Crime Prevention/Community Relations and the Identification Unit. Responsibilities of the Office of the Chief include development of
Department policies and procedures, accreditation management, grant administration, planning and research, and budget direction. The
Training function coordinates academy, field and in-service training, as well as career development. The Field Services Unit
is responsible for purchasing, fleet and facility maintenance, and prisoner security, while the Bureau of Identification manages the
property custody function. The Crime Prevention/Community Relations Unit provides school safety instruction, coordinates the
Neighborhood Watch and community relations programs, and acts as liaison with the media. Record management, retention and
dissemination are the responsibility of the Records Unit.

The second major component of Administrative Services is the Communications Division (P52: 17 FT/2 PT, $1,284,366). The
Communications Division maintains Police and Fire communications consistent with federal standards and regulations to ensure the
safety of personnel operating in hazardous situations and to provide swift, courteous response to citizens seeking aid or information.
The Communications Division also serves as the E-911 emergency telephone answering point for all emergency services in Skokie.

POLICE DEPARTMENT

The E-911 Division (P56: 0 FT/0 PT, $133,488) reflects operations and communications equipment expenses related to the E-911
dispatch and Communications Center.

Field Operations is divided into two major components:

The Investigations Division (P53: 17 FT/0 PT, $1,236,738) investigates and follows up on offenses committed in order to apprehend,
process and assist in the prosecution of criminal offenders, recover and return stolen property to legal owners and seize contraband. The
Division also provides counsel for juveniles, assists victims and witnesses, develops and disseminates pertinent information for the
patrol forces, conducts crime analysis and provides court liaison.

The Uniform Patrol Division (P54: 90 FT/0 PT, $7,154,458) provides preventive patrol, criminal and traffic enforcement, crime
prevention activities, traffic crash and incident investigations, as well as a wide variety of services to ensure the safety and security of
the citizenry.

The Supplemental Funds Division (P58: 0 FT/0 PT, $779,020) is a budget division intended to clearly identify and account for
expenditures that are funded through revenue streams not normally associated with traditional municipal revenue resources. These
sources include grants, asset forfeitures, DUI surcharges, funds from other taxing bodies, and Special Duty Detail funds.


PROGRAM REVIEW

During 2006, preliminary offense statistics indicate that Part A crime increased by 13 percent as did the overall crime rate. Decreases
were noted in the following offense categories: homicide (-100%); robbery (-28%); simple assault and battery (-3%); and theft (-2%).

Overall Department services reflect almost 36,000 calls for assistance. The Department assisted at 3,775 traffic crashes, investigated
3,195 alarm calls, responded to 2,312 E-911 telephone calls where service needs were unknown, and investigated 8,064 requests for
police assistance for suspicious or disturbing activity. In addition to those service calls, the Department wrote 11,186 hazardous moving
violations, issued 5,866 written warnings, and made contact with 26,897 drivers during 2006. Approximately 16,500 vehicles were
cited for violations of parking ordinances. This includes 549 vehicles cited for handicapped parking violations, 410 for fire lane
violations, and 788 for truck ordinance violations.

BUDGET ISSUES

Equipment & Programs
The Police Department will complete a two-year program to install rear deck directional lighting in all squad cars. The directional deck
lighting greatly increases emergency vehicle visibility, and provides motorists with clear directional instruction to facilitate their safe
passage around traffic stops, and away from hazardous roadways conditions and other emergencies. The enhanced visibility and
directional capabilities will concomitantly serve to increase motorist and officer safety at such incidents. $8,000 in funding is
earmarked for year two of this project.

Passive Alcohol Sensors ($1,900) and two Preliminary Breath Testers (P.B.T.’s) ($1,200) are also requested. Each device serves as an
important tool in the identification and apprehension of impaired drivers.

Youth and Family Issues
Justice Assistance Grant Program:
The Police Department also recommends participation in the Justice Assistance grant program. The Justice Assistance grant award
($11,658) is provided through the Judicial Advisory Council of Cook County and will be utilized to partially fund the Saturation Patrol
Program.

Traffic Unit
The Traffic Unit was again awarded a Traffic Law Enforcement Program (TLEP) grant by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
This is the third of a three-year grant funding period. The grant, in the amount of $198,399, will offset salary and benefit costs of two
police officers.

The Department was also awarded a Local Alcohol Program grant in the amount of $85,333. The program will target impaired drivers,
and grand funds will be used to offset associated overtime, travel and gasoline costs.

                                                    is a net increase of only $10 for this account.

0626          Automotive Petroleum Products         $2,052 is required to offset increased fuel costs, based upon the
                                                    recommendation of the Automotive Superintendent.

                                                    Dues in Mandatory Programs. Due to the elimination of other
                                                    memberships, there is a net increase of only $10 for this account.

0609          Minor Equipment, Tools and Hardware   $1,200 is required to offset expenses historically incurred for materials
                                                    and supplies consumed during a NORTAF major crimes investigation
                                                    within the Village of Skokie. Because the need for such a call-out is
                                                    sporadic and unpredictable, these funds would be used strictly on an as-
                                                    needed basis. The availability of funds is necessary, however, because
                                                    such an expenditure would represent over 14 percent of the Department’s

                                                         percent, likely due to shortages caused by military need. The net

                                               Department’s complement of preliminary breath testers (PBTs).
                                               Preliminary breath testers can confirm an officer’s suspicion of an
                                               impaired driver, and often permits additional evidence to be
                                               obtained in DUI arrests. The PBTs have been utilized by the
                                               Police Department for several years, and are an invaluable tool in
                                               the Department’s increased DUI apprehension and reduction

                                                   increases.

0104          Overtime Salaries                    $78,515 is requested to offset overtime expenditures incurred through
                                                   implementation of the Local Alcohol Program grant. The overtime costs
                                                   associated with the grant program, which emphasizes identification and
                                                   apprehension of impaired drivers, are completely reimbursed. Due to a
                                                   reduction of other grant funded overtime expenditures, the net increase
                                                   requested for this account is $77,783.

0107          Special Duty Detail                  $25,000 is required to offset projected expenditures based upon actual
                                                   special detail hours worked as well as contractually mandated salary
                                                   increases. The increase is more than offset by revenues generated by the
                                                   special duty detail program.

0580          Travel and Meetings                  $1,000 is required for a traffic law enforcement conference that is
                                                   mandated and reimbursed via an Illinois Traffic Law Enforcement
                                                   Program grant agreement. An additional $500 is required for travel
                                                   associated with the Local Alcohol Program grant. Each of these costs will
                                                   be completely reimbursed.

0626          Automotive Petroleum Products        $1,352 is required to offset gasoline costs incurred through
                                                   implementation of the Traffic Law Enforcement Program grant. $6,318 is
                                                   required to offset gasoline/mileage costs associated with the Local
                                                   Alcohol Program grant. These costs are completely reimbursed by grant
                                                   funds. The net increase requested for this account is $7,670.

NEW AND EXPANDED PROGRAMS

0590          Training                         $12,300 is requested for the provision of criminal traffic stop training to
                                               all sworn personnel. This training, “Criminal Patrol: Conducting
                                               Complete Traffic Stops,” supplements training received at the academy
                                               and during a recruit’s field training phase. At the academy, a recruit
                                               learns how to perform a simple traffic stop, how to tactically position the
                                               squad and themselves for officer and motorist safety, and how to complete
                                               resulting paperwork. Field training covers many of the same issues, as
                                               well as policies specific to the Skokie Police Department. What neither
                                               training event is intended nor equipped to adequately do is to instruct an
                                               officer on how to perform a “complete” traffic stop, i.e., how to best use
                                               traffic enforcement as an effective tool to detect, identify and arrest
                                               criminals. Because the requested training includes instruction blocks

                                                                                                                             408

                                               focusing on vehicle concealment areas, detecting deception, informant
                                               development and roadside interviews, officers receiving this training have
                                               experienced notably more traffic contacts, and consequently more DUI
                                               apprehensions, more drug and gang-related arrests, and greater crash
                                               reduction. This training would improve productivity and effectiveness, as
                                               well as officer safety. Criminal traffic stop training is consistent with the
                                               Department’s goals and objectives, and is strongly recommended for
                                               consideration.

0750          Fire and Safety Equipment        $1,900 is requested for the purchase of Passive Alcohol Sensors. A
                                               passive alcohol sensor is a hand-held, rapid alcohol detection instrument.
                                               The sensor combines a police-grade flashlight with a sampling instrument
                                               capable of detecting low levels of airborne alcohol from a person’s breath.
                                               The device is typically used in DUI and Zero Alcohol Tolerance
                                               enforcement, and is an ideal tool for use at roadside safety checks and
                                               roadway entrances to public events. Purchase of this type of device
                                               would provide officers with another tool with which to remove impaired
                                               drivers from Skokie’s streets.
