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, 2009. 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




                 11
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:          August 16, 2010

Subject:       Annual Budget for Fiscal Year 2011


I am pleased to submit the Village’s Fiscal Year 2011 (FY11) Budget. Amidst the national economic downturn that commenced during the
fall of 2008 and subsequent loss of Village revenue, the Village’s fiscal affairs are challenging. The FY11 budget strives to continue to
navigate the challenging economic times through significant cost saving measures, maintains the Village’s tradition of careful financial
management, and preserves Village services.

Notwithstanding the new revenue from the recently approved utility tax, the Village departments were challenged to prepare austere
budgets. I am pleased to report that the departments responded to the challenge. The operating budget is less than the previous year for the
second consecutive year. In 2009-10 the budget was reduced by ($554,238) from the prior year. This year, the budget is further reduced by
another ($456,024).

Even through these difficult financial times, the Village maintains its standards of service with fully accredited Public Works, Police and
Fire Departments, along with Class I ISO rating for fire service, making the Village of Skokie the first municipality in the nation to achieve
these distinctions. In addition, the Village has one of only seven 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 was incorporated in 1888. 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
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 directors of the Village’s departments. The Mayor and Trustees are elected to four-year terms.




                                                                                                                                                 12
The following detailed information is divided into major sections including: FY11 Village goals and priorities, an overview of the
expenditures and revenues, and finally a review of activities and accomplishments over the past year.


I.       GOALS & PRIORITIES FOR FISCAL YEAR 2011

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
2010-2011 fiscal year. The goals and priorities set forth by each department reflect the overall Village goals. Detailed descriptions of each
are located within the respective departments’ narratives and summaries. The Fiscal Year 2011 Annual Budget is, in large part, the
Village’s effort in response to the following goals:

     •    Continue the Village’s tradition of careful financial planning.
     •    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.
     •    Provide professional administration and execution of Village codes, ordinances and directives.
     •    Continue employee training and development.
     •    Strive for service excellence and best and efficient practices in all program areas.
     •    Maintain departmental accreditations and certifications.
     •    Continue to operate in a fiscally responsible manner and strive to maintain healthy reserves. 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 FY11 budget addresses a number of issues and priorities, including the following:

     •    Controlled spending due to the state of the economy while maintaining core services.
     •    Navigate the difficult financial condition due to the downturn in the economy that is causing reduced revenue. As a priority, the
          Village will control spending while maintaining service levels.
     •    Skokie continues to place an importance on economic development and will continue the practice of attracting developers interested
          in development and redevelopment, albeit at a slower pace prior to the downturn in the economy. Ensuring progress in economic
          development in the Downtown area remains a priority including constructing the Downtown Skokie Swift Station and implementing
          the Downtown Action Plan. Progress on West Dempster Street will also continue to be a priority this year with creation of a Tax
          Increment Finance District (TIF).



                                                                                                                                                13
      •   The construction of the new police facility continues with an anticipated completion during fall 2010.
      •   Considerable reinvestment in the aging public infrastructure, including roadways as well as water and sewer facilities, continues to
          be a priority in the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and is partially supported by grant funding.
      •   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.
      •   The FY11 Budget continues to maintain a General Fund balance, but it is projected to decrease to 22.4%. While lower than the
          Village’s stated goal of 25%, the fund balance has had to be relied upon in light of the revenue contraction experienced during FY09
          and FY10.

II.       EXPENDITURES AND REVENUES
                                                                                                     Operating Expenditures vs. Revenues
Due to the state of the economy and the resulting decrease in revenues or cash
receipts, departments were once again instructed to strive for efficiencies and
                                                                                      $50,000,000
cost savings without affecting core services and ultimately prepare reduced
budgets when compared to the previous fiscal year. The departments responded          $48,000,000
remarkably well submitting responsible budgets.
                                                                                      $46,000,000

A considerable amount of the savings is achieved due to the hiring freeze that is     $44,000,000
eliminating vacant positions in several departments. The Village implemented a
hiring freeze during December 2008 and since its inception twenty positions           $42,000,000
have been frozen. The hiring freeze is continuing with the FY11 budget.                             FY08 Actual    FY09 Actual     FY10      FY11 Budget

Thirteen frozen positions were eliminated in the FY11 budget and inclusive of                                                     Actuals
all funds results in an estimated savings of ($735,963).                                                          Expenditures       Revenues




A. General Fund

The General Fund includes all operational departments and, with a few exceptions, the entire Village workforce. The General Fund totals
$47,739,911, which is a decrease of ($456,024) or 1% under FY10. Over a two year period the budget has been reduced by ($1,010,262).
Prior to the economic downturn the budget was $48,686,912. The Final FY11 General Fund budget includes the value of a 1% wage
adjustment approved by the Village Board during the April budget hearings.

The initial department budget submittals totaled $48,155,743 which is ($40,192) less than the FY10 approved budget. Furthermore, due to
the state of revenue receipts and through careful review and collaboration between the Manager’s Office and the departments, services and



                                                                                                                                                           14
programs were reviewed and additional savings were found. The gross reductions were in excess of ($580,000). The savings are detailed
within each budget. Within this budget eleven staff vacancies have been eliminated resulting in a savings of ($687,459) in the FY11
General Fund.

Notwithstanding the noted savings, the Village has mandatory increases over which it has little control. One of the Village’s largest
expenditures is employee group insurance inclusive of medical, dental, and life, and the insurance budget increase this year is $243,711 or
4.5%. The net budget increase is $180,592 due to premium and reserve contributions. A portion of this increase amounting to $27,718 is
attributable to the Public Safety Employee Benefit Act (PSEBA) that requires the Village to pay the entire medical insurance premium for
fire and police sworn personnel and their family if the employee suffers a catastrophic injury or is killed in the line of duty. PSEBA is an
example of the State General Assembly imposing a mandate that has financial implications to the Village. The Village now has three
former employees receiving these benefits for a total expenditure of $45,432.

The FY11 Budget is balanced, meaning that revenues are projected to pay for the expenditures in the budget. As a result, the budget does
not require the use of reserve funds or the Village savings as the past two fiscal years required. This is partially due to the recently
approved Municipal Utility Tax becoming effective with the commencement of the new fiscal year (FY11).

The prior utilization of reserves was due to the downturn in the economy and subsequent underperforming revenue despite the Village’s
cost saving measures. The General Fund reserves are projected to be $9,086,747 or 19.0% at the conclusion of the current fiscal year on
April 30, 2010 which is less than the Village’s policy. This is down from $10,865,481 at the start of the fiscal year. Prior to the economic
downturn, the fund balance was $14,064,426 which was 28.9% of the expenditures. The Village has a long-term policy of requiring a
minimum of 25% General Fund balance. The 25% is equal to three months of the Village’s expenditures and provides sufficient funds for
the Village to avoid the possibility of short-term borrowing to meet current needs. The fund balance is a factor that has assisted the Village
in achieving the highest bond rating possible. The Village has historically been able to maintain the fund balance policy as evident by the
28.9% fund balance prior to the economic downturn. The fund balance has been used as it is designed for the short-term economic
downturn.

The Village revenue sources continue to be affected by the economy. The General Fund revenues for Fiscal 2011 are estimated at
$47,569,734 which represents a decrease of ($562,940) or -1.2% from the prior fiscal year. This decrease would be greater except the
Village’s Municipal Utility Tax becomes effective immediately in Fiscal 2011 and the estimate to be realized by the General Fund from the
new tax during the fiscal year is $2,300,029. The balance of tax is used to fund pension programs and the self-insurance liability fund.

The Village Board will be able to continue the property tax freeze, levying the identical amount of taxes as in 1990 of $15,456,695.

A detailed report of all revenues is included in the Revenues section of this document.




                                                                                                                                                 15

The pension and retirement funds, inclusive of the Fire Pension, Police
Pension, and Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF), total
$13,244,949. This is a $412,321 increase or 3.2% over FY10. For the
Fire and Police Pension Fund, the increase reflects annual statutorily
provided increases for current pension recipients and projected
additional retirements of Fire and Police personnel. The Illinois
Municipal Retirement Fund increase of 5.1% is the result of an                 Pensions                                       Operating
increase in the requisite Village contributions. In addition to the                                                          General Fund
annual pension expenditure obligation, the appropriate time to
recognize and fund the cost of pension benefits is at the time they are
earned, when the employee is employed, not when the benefits are
paid. As a result, the Village regularly conducts actuarial valuations to assess the funding levels of the Fire and Police Pension Funds.

In 1999 the Fire and Police Pension funds were funded 114.8% and 110.7% respectively. In the recent actuarial analysis presented to the
Board in October, the Fire Pension fund was at 60.5% and the Police Pension fund was at 70.3%. This actuarial deficiency requires an
estimated increased contribution of $2.5 million annually to the Fire Pension, Police Pension, and Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund
(IMRF). This amount is required to arrive at 90% actuarial funding basis for the Police and Fire Pension Funds. The increase in pension
contributions is primarily due to benefit enhancements mandated by the State of Illinois for Fire and Police but also because of a reduction
in investment earnings to the funds.

The Village Board recently approved a Municipal Utility Tax to assist with funding pension obligations, and this is the first budget that the
Municipal Utility Tax will be in effect. It is estimated that $2,570,652 of the revenue from this tax will be attributed to the pensions. The
Village is striving to achieve acceptable pension funding levels that the Village has traditionally maintained.




                                                                                                                                                16
Water Fund
The Water Fund (Water and Sewer, Water Meter and Flood Control), including operations and CIP, totals $10,013,195. A water rate
increase of 2.0% was approved and became effective at the beginning of the fiscal year (FY11). 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 effect 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. The significant CIP project in the budget is the rehabilitation of the water tank at Fargo/Long for a cost of
$910,000.

Capital Improvement Program (CIP)
There are several traffic and roadway improvements included in the FY11 Public Improvements component of the CIP. These
improvements are funded in part through Motor Fuel Tax (MFT), Local Motor Fuel Tax, Economic Development (EDF), Community
Development Block Grants (CDBG), Tax Increment Financing District (TIF), and Special Service Area (SSA) contributions. A number of
these projects will be supplemented with federal, state and county contributions as well.

Several significant projects commencing in FY11 include:

   •   Street Resurfacing and Improvements - $1,700,000
   •   Golf Road and Skokie Boulevard Intersection Improvements - $218,353
       (Additional state and federal funding of $4,949,656)
   •   Construction of Downtown Skokie Swift Station - $6,067,492
       (Additional federal funding of $14,108,000)
   •   Main Street Resurfacing - $170,000
       (Additional federal and state funding of $2,178,937)
   •   Skokie Boulevard & Searle Parkway Intersection Improvements - $645,000
   •   Skokie Boulevard Streetscape Improvements (Oakton to Main) - $674,000
       (Additional federal and state funding of $858,000)
   •   Multi-Use Path: Oakton Street to Dempster Street - $1,440,000
       (Additional grant funding $720,000)

Design will start for the following projects in the coming fiscal year, but construction is expected during FY12.

   •   Old Orchard Road/Skokie Boulevard Intersection Improvement - $52,500
       (Additional funding of $357,000)



                                                                                                                                             17
The Buildings and Grounds and Equipment portion of the CIP consists of a number of capital projects. Most noteworthy is the $12 million
for constructing the new police facility. The increase in the Simplified Municipal Telecommunications Tax effective January 1, 2008
created the revenue source to pay for the Police facility. With the opening of the new police facility the Village will commence using the
new Emergency Operation Center. In addition, the Village has received an energy efficiency grant that will fund facility improvements
including windows and lighting for the Village Hall. Two other significant projects that will be completed during the year include rolling
out the new Reverse 911/Community Messaging System and implementing a new internal Village telephone system.

The Village maintains a Fleet Maintenance CIP to provide oversight and ensure the Village is funding the fleet at a level that maintains it in
an acceptable manner. Staff has projected that the Fleet Maintenance CIP requires an annualized funding level of $2.2 million. The FY11
budget includes $1.4 million in funding. The Village is refurbishing several of the more expensive vehicles as a cost savings measure and
to effectively extend their life. In future budgets this funding level will need to be increased in order to replace vehicles in the Village’s
fleet to maintain it at its existing level. The more significant vehicle replacements and refurbishments in the FY11 budget include:

   •       Fire Tower/Ladder 16 Refurbishment               $350,000
   •       Police Patrol Vehicles                           $256,850
   •       Refuse Packer Truck                              $232,702
   •       Road Grader                                      $166,464
   •       Front End Loader                                 $146,232
   •       Fire Pumper Truck Refurbishment                  $ 85,000
   •       Dump Truck Refurbishment                         $ 30,000

III. FY10 IN REVIEW

The past year has proven to be very busy and challenging financially for the Village Board and Village employees. In addition, there were a
number of significant events and accomplishments. Some examples include:

   •   The economic downturn continued to plague Village revenues, necessitating the continuation of the hiring freeze of non-critical
       positions and tight spending controls.
   •   The Board endorsed an action plan for Downtown Skokie consisting of two phases. Phase One, 2009 to 2012, centering on pre-retail
       recruitment site preparation and Phase Two, 2012 and beyond, includes active retail recruitment.
   •   During October through December 2009 the Village’s Health Department led an H1N1 vaccination campaign, administering the
       distribution of 40,000 doses of vaccine to Skokie residents and residents of over 192 other Illinois municipalities.
   •   The groundbreaking for the new police station was held.
   •   The Village of Skokie sponsored a Regional Immigrant Symposium focusing on immigrant integration issues and resources for
       municipal officials.

•   In conjunction with regional public health officials and healthcare partners, the Village’s Health Department hosted a large scale
    pharmaceutical dispensing exercise at Niles West High School as part of the Village’s emergency preparedness efforts.

    four e-payment options available through the Village’s website.
•   During FY10, the Village received its third and final installment of a $135,000 Immigrant Integration grant initiative through The
    Chicago Community Trust. FY10 funds were used to hold the International Citizen and Youth Police Academies, an International
    Leadership Academy, a spring 2010 Know Your Neighbor Week program and to conduct an immigrant integration assessment to
    develop a long-range immigrant integration plan for the Village.
•   The Village was awarded $654,200 in stimulus funding under the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program.
    Recommendations for funding include an LED Lighting Pilot Program, replacement of windows and interior lighting at Village Hall
    and improvements to the HVAC system at Village Hall.
•   The Village’s FY10 Budget received the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Award, marking
    the 17th consecutive year the Village budget has received this designation.
•   The Village participated in the 2009 National Citizen Survey that returned excellent results from residents about Village services
    and staff.
•   Based on staff’s recommendation, amidst increased employee pension obligations due largely to benefit increases mandated by the
    State of Illinois General Assembly and to sustain Village services despite dramatically reduced revenue receipts from most tax
    sources, the Board approved a 5% Utility Tax.
•   The Board approved a $25,000,000 20-year bond issue for the police station.
•   The Downtown TIF Redevelopment Plan was amended to increase the capacity for the last four years in order to continue to
    enhance the marketability of Downtown Skokie for more retail activity and redevelopment.
•   Staff completed an audit of the Village’s internal business telephone service and effectively decreased annual operating
    expenditures.
•   The Village received a $100,000 grant from the Regional Transportation Authority to develop a land use, parking and circulation
    plan for the West Dempster Street area.
•   The Village Board selected a firm to provide architectural and engineering services for the construction of the Downtown Skokie
    Swift Station. In addition, the Board selected a construction manager to plan and manage the station construction on behalf of the
    Village.
•   The Village, in collaboration with the Independent Merchants of Downtown Skokie, the Skokie Park District and the Skokie
    Chamber of Commerce held the third annual Backlot Bash.
•   The Board approved an intergovernmental agreement between the Skokie Fire Department, Human Services Division and the
    Skokie Park District, formalizing a plan for mass care functions whenever a disaster or emergency is declared.
•   Fitch Ratings, Inc. evaluated Skokie’s credit rating and assigned the Village with an “AAA” bond rating.




                                                                                                                                         19
   •   The Village received $858,000 in federal stimulus funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for the Skokie
       Boulevard beautification project.
   •   The Board approved an intergovernmental agreement for wireless alarm monitoring, which modernized the manner in which
       fire/police alarms are monitored and saves the Village $150,000 annually.
   •   The Village’s Mutual Aid Ambulance billing procedures were enhanced.
   •   Procedures were implemented for the Foreign Fire Board pursuant to state legislation modifications.
   •   The Village’s internal Emergency Management Public Safety Consortium continued its efforts and ultimately enhancing the
       Village’s capacity to respond to emergencies.

       Skokie Boulevard and Crawford Avenue.
   •   The Board approved a contract for an Oakton Street Corridor Study consisting of traffic and parking analysis, traffic speed study
       and a model of the impact of reducing the number of lanes on Oakton Street.

Although challenging financially, 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 through a very difficult financial year, enabling staff to
continue achieving high levels of service as indicated by the most recent citizen survey results. The commitment to no lay-offs is very
much noted and appreciated. I am especially grateful to all the Village employees who have worked even harder this past year because of
frozen positions, increased workloads, and limitations on spending. It is our tradition of excellent work ethic and service delivery that has
helped ease the impact of these trying times, and I look forward to working with each of you over the next year in taking on the challenges
of the future.

Finally, I would like to thank Leslie Gooris, Karen Norwood and Nick Wyatt of the Manager’s Office for their hard work in preparing the
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 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 projected FY11 fiscal year end fund balance is
19.0% of the FY11 budget which is less than 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.

*Explanation Regarding FY11 Personnel Changes*
The FY11 Budget includes a slight reduction in the work force as the result of an administrative policy to freeze vacant positions and achieve financial
savings during another difficult fiscal year due to the economy.
      Administration - Frozen Position: One vacant FTE (Full Time Equivalent) Program Coordinator position and one vacant PTE Administrative Intern
      position.
      Fire Development - Frozen positions: Two vacant FTE Firefighter positions.
      Finance Department - Frozen Position: One PTE (Part Time Equivalent) Accounting Clerk position.
      Community Development - Frozen Positions: Two FTE positions (Deputy Director and Licensing Officer). Additionally, the equivalent of 0.6 FTE of a
      Planner position was relocated from the Planning Division to the CDBG budget, with an increase reflected in the latter.
      Police Department - Frozen Positions: One FTE Police Sergeant and one FTE Police Officer position.
      Federal Aid - The 0.3 FTE associated with the vacant Economic Development Secretary position was frozen. Due to more focus on economic
      development, 0.2 FTE associated with the Economic Development Coordinator Position was shifted to the Economic Development Budget (the latter
      shows an increase of the same amount). The equivalent of 0.6 FTE of the Planner position responsible for CDBG duties was shifted to the Federal Aid
      Budget from the Community Development budget. This reflects more professional resources being allocated to CDBG without filling the Secretary
      position and the Economic Development Coordinator shifting focus. In addition, the full-time Disability Services Coordinator position was replaced by
      a new 0.5 part-time Social Worker position in the CDBG budget. The net impact on the Federal Aid budget is a 0.9 FTE decrease and 0.5 PTE increase.
      Economic Development - The equivalent of 0.2 FTE associated with the Economic Development Coordinator was relocated to this budget. However,
      the equivalent of 0.7 FTE associated with the vacant Secretary position was frozen. The net impact on the Economic Development budget is a 0.5 FTE
      decrease.
      Tax Increment Financing - One FTE Economic Development Specialist position was added for FY11 due to the increased workloads resulting from
      the addition of the Village's third Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district, the West Dempster TIF. The position is funded entirely by TIF funds.

Sales Taxes
Sales taxes account for approximately 22.1% of all
recognized Village revenues. A significant portion of sales taxes received, 9.6% for fiscal 2011, will be dedicated to such projects as
the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie (including both operations and debt service) and debt service for the
Village’s commitment to the Old Orchard Shopping Center as well as other prior capital projects.

Property Taxes
This tax source accounts for 14.2% of all Village revenues excluding special service area levies. The Village has had a nineteen-year
property tax freeze that is expected to continue as a result of the adoption of the utility tax a portion of which will be used to provide

                                                                                                                                                           31

                                            FUNDING SOURCE SUMMARY
additional funding for the Fire and Police Pension Funds. Annual actuarial valuations of these two funds will be performed to assess
the sufficiency of the utility tax in funding the Village’s pension obligation.

Interest
The Village’s revenues from interest and other investment earnings account for approximately 8.7% of all Village revenues
(including returns from water fund investments). The Village’s aggregate investments for all funds at May 1, 2010 amounted to
almost $169.2 million. Of this total, the Fire and Police Pension Funds accounted for 75.4% or $127.7 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 5.4% of all recognized
Village revenues. Other taxes accounting for 16.5% of Village revenues include Village imposed taxes (hotel/motel (6.0% of this
category), communication utility tax (24.1%), real estate transfer (4.3%), local fuel tax (6.9%), utility tax (35.8%) and other State
allocated taxes (corporate replacement (7.3%), use (5.0%) and motor fuel tax (10.6%).

Water Revenues
Water rates in the Village were also adjusted effective for billing cycles beginning in August 2010. The new water rate will be
$29.55/1000 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 $29.55 rate reflects an
approximate 2.0% increase over the prior rate of $28.97. 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.
Water revenues account for 10.5% of all recognized Village revenues.

Miscellaneous Revenue Sources
The Village has several sources of miscellaneous revenue including licenses & permits (2.8% of all Village revenues), fines (1.9% of
all Village revenues), service charges (3.2% of all Village revenues), and other agencies (2.6% of all Village revenues).

Other Revenue Sources
This revenue source accounts for 8.1% of all Village revenues. This category includes sources such as employee contributions for
pensions, gains from fixed assets, etc.

                                                    VILLAGE OF SKOKIE
                                                         FY2011
                                                   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 funding provided
for 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 generally over the projects’ 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 Village has also issued debt for other major projects over the years. The projects funded included a parking garage and water
detention facility at the Old Orchard Shopping Center, the construction of public improvements in eight special service areas,
improvements to the Village’s water system, construction of the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie, a new Fire
Station #17, renovation of the Village’s Public Works facility, support for the development of the Illinois Science + Technology Park,
a new Police Station, and renovation of the Skokie Public Library. These projects are discussed in more detail in the narrative of the
General Obligation Bond Fund.

The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for Fiscal 2011 totals approximately $31.16 million. Budgeted equipment replacements,
building improvements, and other public improvements will be financed through the General and Capital Projects Funds ($16.05
million), motor fuel taxes ($.91 million), Community Development Block Grant ($.15 million), Economic Development Fund ($.65
million), water revenues ($2.48 million), Local Fuel Tax Fund ($1.02 million), tax increment financing ($9.69 million), economic
stimulus funds ($.08 million), and special service areas ($.13 million). Of the $31.16 million in projects in Fiscal 2011, $12.25 million
will be paid from debt issued in 2009 for the Police Station. The Village does not anticipate issuing debt in Fiscal 2011.

                                                       DESCRIPTION OF DEBT
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 $35.74 million which is in addition to the Village funded CIP of $31.16 million.

Although the Village uses general obligation debt as the primary financing mechanism and has no revenue bonds outstanding, it has
supported about 95% of its debt service payments through non-property tax sources. Of the $69.0 million outstanding, only $3.2
million is paid completely by broad-based property taxes. The Village's debt equates to .45% of property values and $228 on a per
capita basis based on the 2000 Census. Overall debt totals 2.16% of property values and $1,090 per capita. The Village’s debt is rated
AAA.

The following is a summary of outstanding debt for the Village of Skokie as of May 1, 2010 which totals $81,020,920. The summary
is presented both on the basis of the project financed by the debt and by the source of funding for the debt.

                                            NUTS AND BOLTS OF BUDGETING

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 prepared 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.




                                                                                                                                                 44
                                                  V I L L A G E O F SK O K I E
                                                           FY2011
                                             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



                                                                                                                                                   45

            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 $276,172,680. The Village of Skokie’s actual debt total is $69,040,920 (exclusive of Skokie
            Public Library Debt), or 2.16% of property value and $1,090 per capita. Debt service fund consists solely of the
            General Obligation Fund since the Public Benefit Fund was closed when the last assessment associated with that
            fund was paid in the FY06 budget year.

     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




                                                                                                                                     46

                                                             FY2011
                                               NUTS AND BOLTS OF BUDGETING
                        specific fund administered in this budget under Village control is the Water Fund. Other enterprise activities relate
                        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 include not only 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.
With the current difficult economic environment and the subsequent downward adjustment in anticipated revenue, the FY2011 General Fund was
reduced by $456,024 or -1 %. 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,




                                                                                                                                                         47
                                                    V I L L A G E O F SK O K I E
                                                             FY2011
                                               NUTS AND BOLTS OF BUDGETING
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
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.

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

The goals of the Mayor and Board of Trustees are to:

1. Enact legislation necessary for the effective management of Village activities and operations;

2. Establish the Village plans, programs, and policies; and

3. Provide a forum for the discussion and presentation of information and opinions from all citizens, their representatives and other
   parties on matters relating to the activities and policies of the Village government.


DIVISION DESCRIPTION

The Board of Trustees ($242,925) is responsible for all legislative matters and public policy determinations. The Mayor also serves as
President of the Board of Trustees and presides over Board meetings. The Mayor also serves as the ceremonial head of the Village.

Six Village Trustees determine policy as expressed in ordinances and resolutions that must be approved by a majority vote.

BUDGET ISSUES

The budget includes a mandatory increase for the Village’s annual audit, amounting to $500 (offset by a reduction of $2,500 in the
cost of the annual Boards and Commissions Reception). Additionally, an increase of $2,766 is required to cover ordinance-mandated
merit increases.

       1.     Maintain the Zoning chapter of the Village Code 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/$25,292) 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/$25,292) is comprised of eight regular members and a Chairperson, who are appointed by the
Mayor and Board of Trustees. The Zoning Administrator serves as an ex-officio member of the Board. The Legal Department and
Zoning Administrator act as staff advisors. The Zoning Board of Appeals is a final hearing body in most circumstances with only
specific types of appeals requiring action by the Mayor and Board of Trustees.

PROGRAM REVIEW

The Plan Commission is expected to hear 51 cases in FY11, a slightly higher level than in FY09 and FY10 but lower than the number
of cases in FY08. The number of submittals in FY10 continued to be down, attributed to the continued slow economy. The Plan
Commission continued to focus on redevelopment in the Village, implementation of the Village’s alley vacation program, and to a
lesser extent zoning chapter amendments. Significant development cases included Chicago Jewish Funerals, expansion of both Swift
Childcare and Mosaic Early Childhood Center, Kehilat Chovevei Tzion synagogue, a new Shell gas station, major amendments to the

Skokie Hospital site plan, and the renovation of Alden Skokie Estates skilled nursing care facility. Numerous other special use
applications, subdivisions, and map amendments were also considered.

The Plan Commission had three special objectives to complete during FY10. The first was to continue to implement the
Comprehensive Plan, especially area and sub-area plans; however the Commission did not hear any long-range planning cases during
the year. Their second special objective was to continue reviewing and revising the Zoning chapter of the Village Code. The
Commission reviewed text amendments regarding commercial planned developments in industrial districts, antique and thrift shops,
manufacturing and wholesale trade uses, recommendations and determinations by the Plan Commission, crematories, and continued
clarification of selected definitions. The Plan Commission’s final special objective, to continue the street and alley vacation program,
continued to make progress in FY10 with the review and approval of 2 additional alley segment vacations and portions of 2 others.
Since FY05, the Plan Commission has reviewed and recommended vacation of 96 of the 125 locations in the program. This program
will continue in FY11; however, as were the cases this year, the remaining alleys will be more difficult, costly, and time consuming to
vacate.

The number of cases heard by the Zoning Board of Appeals dropped significantly in FY10, and FY11 is expected to increase slightly
as investment begins to increase after the severe disruption in the residential market in FY10. Exception permits for fences are by far
the most common requests. Most of the other cases involved lot coverage, side yards, impermeable surfaces, floor to-area ratio, front
yard setbacks requirements, and cases initiated due to code enforcement efforts. Almost all variation cases were for existing
structures, not teardowns.

BUDGET ISSUES

With the full implementation of video-recorded public meetings that began in FY10, an additional savings of $3,900 for professional
services will occur in FY11. There is also some savings in the travel and training budget due to decreased projected expenses for the
national American Planning Association conference, which will be in Boston this year. It should be noted that the FY11 budget
assumes only 42 of the 48 advertised meetings will occur because of a lack of cases and staff only scheduling Village initiated cases
with meetings that already have cases on the agenda. The budget will need to be adjusted in future years to accommodate the
reestablishment of a full schedule of Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals hearings.

FY11 OBJECTIVES

The FY11 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 FY11 objectives for the Plan Commission include continued implementation of the new Comprehensive Plan, especially area
and sub-area plans; continued review and revision of 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. Despite the slowdown in development in FY09 and FY10, the workload is expected to increase slightly in FY11 as
responsibility for comprehensive planning efforts and Zoning chapter amendments shift back from the Temporary Zoning
Commission to the Plan Commission, numerous smaller redevelopment projects occur, and the realization of other developments that
Staff has been working on during FY10 are filed with the Plan Commission in FY11.

PLAN COMMISSION/ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS
The FY11 objective for the Zoning Board of Appeals is to review and render decisions on requests for exception permits and
variances to the Zoning chapter. In FY11, it is anticipated that the number of cases will remain slightly lower than recent years as a
result of the continued national economic slump in housing but increase slightly from FY10 as the housing market begins to improve.

              Police and Fire Departments as prescribed by the Skokie Board of Fire and Police Commission Rules and Regulations,

              Departments or to hear the presentation of charges by the Chiefs of these departments.

DIVISION DESCRIPTION

The Board of Fire and Police Commissioners (5 PT/$18,900) is a five-member appointed board that meets on a regular basis to
maintain a system to allow for a pool of qualified candidates to meet Fire and Police Department staffing levels. This system includes
the components of recruitment, testing, selection, promotion and disciplinary hearings.

PROGRAM REVIEW

During fiscal year 2010, the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners did not administer any entry-level testing processes or
promotional processes due to the hiring freeze implemented by the Village. The Commission reviewed and evaluated service
providers who administer psychological examinations for public safety positions. The Commission also revised the Rules and
Regulations and is working on developing a Selection Manual for hiring firefighters.

PROGRAM REVIEW

During the 2009 Festival of Cultures the Human Relations Commission participated by staffing the Information Booth.

The Education Committee developed an new program called D.A.Y. – Diversity Initiative by Youth. The program invites High
School age students to volunteer a service related to diversity and to then write an essay describing the impact of this service on the
student volunteer. Winners of this new program will be presented at the Festival of Cultures.

The commission focuses on diversity issues throughout the year and works to promote understanding in various ways in the
community. The commission sponsors annually a Black History Month project with the Skokie Public Library. The Commission also
participates in the “Know Your Neighbor Week” and hosted the first annual Community Pot-Luck.

Neighborhood Block Parties remains an important part of the Commission's efforts to enhance understanding, respect and friendship
among Village residents. 41 Block Parties were held throughout the Village this past year. Letters were sent to all who had a Block
Party encouraging them to apply for Block Party of the Year.

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

FY11 OBJECTIVES

1.   Monitor compliance of the Village's Fair Housing Ordinance.
2.   Promote the idea of Block Parties through articles in NewSkokie and a new Block Party brochure. Increase the amount held to 50.
3.   Continue to actively support the Festival of Cultures by working the Information Booth.
4.   Include a copy of Fair Housing Brochure in the new residents’ packets.
5.   Sponsor an annual Black History Month event in conjunction with the Skokie Public Library.
6.   Host the second annual Community Pot-Luck and support the “Know Your Neighbor Week” coffees.

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 ($2,175) 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.

FY11 OBJECTIVES
1.    Continue to expand the activities and content of Traffic Safety Week. This year's Bicycle Safety Day will again be in
      conjunction with the Skokie Park District at Oakton Park as last year's was a success.
2.    Use the Traffic Safety Commission Condition Form to inform appropriate Village Departments' conditions which warrant
      attention.
3.    Provide assistance in the community's school safety programs as requested.


                                                                                                                                              80

LIQUOR CONTROL COMMISSION
GOALS
To administer judiciously and effectively the appropriate provisions of the Skokie Village Code and other ordinances and resolutions relating
to the retail sale and consumption of alcohol.

DIVISION DESCRIPTION

The Liquor Control Commission ($1,000) 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 with keeping accurate records of licenses, collecting annual fees from license holders and investigating and
responding to complaints regarding liquor licenses. In 2005, the Village began a process of reviewing liquor license classifications and
proposing revisions for the purposes of meeting demand and fostering economic development. This multi-year process culminated in a
comprehensive re-write of the Alcohol Chapter of the Skokie Village Code adopted in April 2009. During FY11, the transition of licenses to
reflect the revisions made will be completed. The licensing revisions include: (i) changes to the E classification by (a) creating a new Class E
district for Dempster Street, with two Class E licenses being added, (b) adding a fourth E license in the North Commercial District to meet
increased demand, and (c) reinstating an E license in the South Commercial District which became null and void for lack of activity; (ii) a
new Class O license for business that sell package alcohol to go, and a required conversion of their Class A licenses to Class O licenses; (iii) a
new Class P license and a “P-Right” designed to allow property owners to designate tenants that receive a license, which will require certain
Class A licensees to convert to a P-Right; and (iv) allow all applicants to request a beer and wine only designation for their license, regardless
of class.

FY11 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 ($14,217) 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 was changed
to allow schools to apply for a "Cultural Grant" not to exceed $500, to present a performing art group of their choice. Fourteen Skokie
schools applied for funding, twelve of which were funded by the Commission. Additionally, the Commission welcomed six “Project
Grant” applications, all of which were funded based on available funds and the strength of the application. 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. Due to state-wide budget cuts, the Village received approximately $2,000 in FY10 from the Illinois Arts Council. This
amount is significantly less than in previous years.

During FY11, the Commission will begin implementing a new program, titled Artistic Excellence Award. Through this program,
individuals that have contributed significantly to the arts in Skokie will be recognized through a permanent display at the North Shore

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 ($9,985) consists of eighteen 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

The FY11 Beautification & Improvements Commission request represents a decrease of ($6,000). This is due to cost savings achieved
in supplies for public area plantings ($2,500) and non-building improvements ($1,000), as well as seasonal banner replacements
expenditures that were relocated to the Public Works operational budget ($2,500).

FY11 OBJECTIVES

1.     Award homeowners or businesses for their efforts in keeping their properties well maintained;
2.     Continue such promotional events such as Arbor Day;
3.     Assist in the replacement of trees in public ways and along the North Shore Channel Park that are no longer viable and,
4.     Replace seasonal banners that are in poor condition.

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 Commission (4FT/7PT, $9,230) is comprised of 7 members who are appointed by the Board of Trustees on a part-
time basis. Additionally, 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.

PROGRAM REVIEW

The Appearance Commission was established in 1973 by the Mayor and Board of Trustees to promote greater aesthetic design quality
in the Village. During FY10, the Appearance Commission reviewed a total of 65 cases or approximately 6.5 cases per meeting— this
is a decrease of 35 cases from FY09. The decrease is likely a result of the continued slowing of the retail sector and housing markets
since 2006. The great majority of cases were home remodeling, continuing a trend that began in FY03. The number of home
remodeling cases decreased from 59 in FY09 to 34 in FY10. New residential construction cases dropped dramatically from 18 in
FY09 to 1 in FY10. With the continued slowing of the housing market from its peak in the mid 2000s, the number of cases for single-
family detached homes is not expected to increase in the coming year. It should be noted that there were no new multifamily cases in
FY09 or FY10 (FY07 and FY08 each contained 2). The number of inquiries and preliminary plans received for new multifamily
developments has been slow, there is no indication that the number of new multifamily cases will increase in FY11.

                                                                                                                                         99

APPEARANCE COMMISSION

Village-wide commercial sign installation cases also declined due to the economy and as in previous years most replacement sign
cases are being reviewed by staff. Caseload trends for commercial uses in specific areas of the Village were not as concentrated as
found in previous years. In FY10 there were 8 cases heard by the Appearance Commission that can be attributed to new commercial
and institutional developments including Alden Nursing Home on Old Orchard Road, Chicago Jewish Funerals on Skokie Boulevard,
Skokie Hospital on Gross Point Road, Church Street Synagogue at Church Street and Crawford Avenue, the Arie and Ida Crown
private schools, Swift Child Care Infants & Toddlers on Lincoln Avenue; and a new Shell motor vehicle service station at Dempster
Street and Gross Point Road.

The Appearance Commission successfully completed 8 of its FY10 objectives. The Commission fell short of meeting its objective of
holding 12 meetings, rather 10 meetings were held. The number of meetings held was based on need and the extent of the market
decline affecting development that was not foreseen during the previous year. The Appearance Plan is in the process of undergoing
revisions and design standards for mixed use zoning districts were adopted.

BUDGET ISSUES

There are no issues for FY11.

FY11 OBJECTIVES
1.    Continue to implement the Appearance Plan and regulations in the Village Code;
2.    Continue to revise and update the appearance regulations in the Village Code;
3.    Consult with the Village Departments on matters affecting the appearance of the Village;
4.    Study exterior drawings, landscape and site plans, and materials for any proposed private, public works or public
      improvements and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees or the Village Manager on the architectural and aesthetic
      aspects thereof;
5.    Hold hearings on the issuance of Certificates of Appropriateness prior to the issuance of building permits in the residential,
      business, and industrial zoning districts. At these meetings the Commission considers external architectural features, materials,
      signage, landscaping, site & parking lot lighting, and site planning;
6.    Continued implementation of the Sign Ordinance;
7.    Review sign permits to assure conformance with the Skokie Sign Ordinance to promote visual quality throughout the Village;
                                                                                                                                          100

PROGRAM REVIEW

In addition to coordinating the day-to-day activities of the Village's six 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.

During FY10 the Village Manager’s Office continued its close watch on the Village’s finances, managing a lingering recession and its
negative effect on revenues. The hiring freeze was maintained while each vacant position was evaluated and expenditures were
closely monitored. Departments were asked to spend below the FY10 budget in order to contain the Village’s reserves. Revenue
options were analyzed throughout the year to address the issue of actuarial deficiencies amongst the pension funds.

During FY10 the Village Manager’s office provided the necessary oversight and leadership during the H1N1 mass vaccination.
Intergovernmental arrangements were pursued and successfully accomplished between the Village, Park District and Oakton


                                                                                                                                         150

Community College to operate the vaccination clinics. Staff members volunteered during several clinics to assist the Health
Department and other volunteers and nurses. The mass vaccination was, all things considered, a significant success for the Village.

The Village Manager along with key managerial staff from the Police, Fire and Community Development departments continued to
oversee the implementation and construction of the new police facility. During FY10 construction commenced at the site after a
ceremonial groundbreaking on July 14, 2009. Additionally several bids and requests for proposals (RFP) were issued during the year
for equipment and services necessary at the new facility. The Village Manager continues to review the executive committee’s progress
to ensure timely completion of milestones necessary for the construction of the police facility.

The Village Manager continued to provide leadership in the various economic development initiatives that the Village has embarked
upon. Specifically, progress was made on the Downtown Skokie Swift project by identifying and contracting with two different firms
for engineering and construction services. The process to establish a TIF district for West Dempster Street has been initiated. A
Downtown Action Plan encompassing Market Analysis data was developed and is underway.

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. The Village again participated in the ICMA
Comparative Performance Measurement Initiative, Chicago-area consortium. Data was collected and analyzed and was issued to
departments as a management tool. FY10 marked the last year for this program as staff prepares to research less expensive and more
efficient options for measuring and tracking performance. Additionally, the Manager’s Office continues to oversee the Village’s GIS
development. The GIS tools available to Village employees and the community continue to receive regular upgrades.

The Manager’s Office assisted in numerous efforts involving intergovernmental coordination, including:
   • A formal agreement with several municipalities and fire protection districts for the wireless monitoring of fire alarms.
   • A formal agreement with over 65 municipalities for the drafting and negotiation of a model franchise for natural gas service.
   • A formal agreement with several communities participating in Mutual Aid for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) that
      streamlines ambulance billings during mutual aid responses.
   • Formal agreements with Skokie Park District and Oakton Community College for use of facilities in instances of mass care,
      such as the vaccination of residents during the H1N1 outbreak.
   • A renewal agreement with the Chicago’s North Shore Convention and Visitors Bureau to advocate and proactively pursue the
      Village’s tourism interests. The Assistant Village Manager serves as the Treasurer of this Executive Board.

   •   Continued representation on the District 219 Financial Advisory Committee.
   •   Continued representation on the Northwest Municipal Conference Environmental Practices and Utility Regulation committees.
   •   Continued representation on the I-NET members 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. During fiscal year 2010, there were changes to
the federal laws that impacted the Village. Some of the more significant federal amendments and regulations instituted affected the
definition of a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act; the National Defense Authorization Act amended the Family and
Medical Leave Act and expanded the Family Military Leave Rights; and amendments were made to the Uniformed Services
Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. The Village continues to develop and administer personnel policies to meet operational
needs. The revisions to the entire Village of Skokie Personnel Manual were completed in FY10. The Manual continues to be
monitored and kept updated. The Personnel Division continues to identify training needs applicable to all Village personnel. During
FY10, a training program was conducted for all Public Safety supervisory personnel covering a variety of topics and Harassment In
The Workplace training was provided for all Village personnel. In an effort to minimize the expenses of training, several Webinars
such as Prevention and Control of Absenteeism and Abuse of Leave, Effective Performance Evaluations and Family and Medical
Leave Act were made available for supervisory personnel to participate in. One of the more significant initiatives was the
development of a web based tool to provide municipalities the ability to calculate and cost out wages and benefits to determine total
compensation.
The Personnel Division is in negotiations for a successor collective bargaining agreement to the 2009 – 2010 agreement with the
Firefighters and Fire Lieutenants. During fiscal year 2010, the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) Local 3033 and the
Village agreed to a one year agreement with that agreement expiring on April 30, 2010. The Village Board rejected a portion of an
arbitration opinion and award on the Fire Captain promotional process. A hearing before the Arbitrator was held. The Arbitrator
reversed his decision and ruled for the Village. There were no grievances filed by the Fire labor union during this fiscal year. The
Police Officer contract expired on April 30, 2008. The Village continued to meet with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) on
numerous issues and reached a tentative agreement, however, the FOP membership did not ratify the offer, therefore, the outstanding

                                                                                                                                        152

issues were presented to a federal arbitrator. The Arbitrator will render his opinion and award during calendar 2010. There were no
grievances filed during FY10 from the Police labor union, however a grievance filed in 2008 is scheduled for hearing before a federal
arbitrator.
Benefit administration, though not exclusively allocated to insurance programs, is dominated by monitoring current insurance trends,
responding to employee inquiries as well as anticipating future needs. The Village continues to review the benefit plan designs of the
group medical and dental insurance programs. The only change made to the group insurance plan this fiscal year was an increase to
the office visit co-pay for the HMO plan to make it consistent with the PPO plan. 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 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 that extended the COBRA
subsidy; the Illinois Young Adult Dependent Coverage Law; and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.

The Personnel Division continues to review and evaluate compensation and classification of positions as vacancies occur and changes
are made during the budget process. The Village committed to reviewing all personnel positions including salary over a three year
period. The review process includes each employee completing a questionnaire about their position as well as a review and
comparison to the job market. This plan was delayed during this fiscal year due to lack of Village finances to support any changes.
The review should resume in FY11 for positions in the Health and Public Works Departments.

The Personnel Division initiates the recruitment process for all vacancies throughout the Village. Due to the financial situation, in
December 2008, the Village implemented a hiring freeze for most positions. There were 15 new positions that became vacant during
FY10 as a result of retirements, resignations and promotions. This was in addition to the 22 vacant full and part time positions at the
end of FY09. On an exception basis, approval was given to fill six full time vacancies during FY10 and 36 seasonal positions were
filled. A Fire Captain promotional process was not administered due to financial constraints.

The Personnel Division continues to provide administrative support and secretarial services 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 the Village placed a freeze on replacing most positions, therefore, an
entry-level Firefighter testing process was not administered nor was a Fire Lieutenant and Police Sergeant promotional process
administered. It is anticipated that entry-level testing process for Firefighter and Police Officer as well as Fire Lieutenant and Police

Sergeant promotional processes will commence in FY11 since these Eligibility Lists have or will have expired.        The Board has
conducted an evaluation of psychological examination vendors as well as updated their Rules and Regulations.

The Multi-Media/Cable Programming and Compliance 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.). The
Division maintained oversight of the cable franchise agreements with Comcast and RCN. Village Board meetings were recorded and
broadcast on SkokieVision municipal cable channel three days per week. Several existing Village video productions were reviewed
and plans are in place to begin updating these productions during the coming year. The division provided as-needed support for the
maintenance of the Village’s website. The Division also provided oversight and technical support assistance to users of the Skokie
Community Institutional Network. A significant upgrade of the Village’s broadcasting system was implemented during FY10, which
provided new tools for maintaining the cable station, better reliability and streamlined emergency messaging capabilities.
Additionally, staff continued to work with Library staff and technology consulting firms to determine improvements to the
SkokieLink wireless set-up, a project that will continue during FY11. The division continued to provide support services to the Cable
Advisory Commission with a very successful Video Awards ceremony held in May, 2009.

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

Economic Development Communications Outreach
During FY10, in cooperation with the Economic Development Division, the Marketing/PI Division developed an Action Plan for
Downtown Skokie and began implementing a number of initiatives included in the plan. The Village’s WBBM-AM radio advertising
campaign, which focused on economic development, ended in June 2009.

Additional Communications Outreach
The Marketing/PI 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 division continued to focus on the Village’s web site for accuracy, timeliness of information and ease
of navigation.

The division coordinates media outreach and also emergency communications. From April to December, 2009, the Marketing
Division coordinated extensive public outreach regarding H1N1 influenza and the Health Department’s vaccination clinics.

The Marketing Division coordinated the 2009 National Citizen Survey. The survey was mailed to 1,200 randomly selected Skokie
residences in October 2009, with a 39% response rate. A comprehensive survey response information packet was developed and sent
to the Village Board in January, 2010, with the March NewSkokie featuring an article to brief residents on the survey results.

The division worked in cooperation with the Human Services Division on programs funded by The Chicago Community Trust
Immigrant Integration Grant initiative, including the June 2009 Regional Immigrant Integration Symposium. In summer, 2009, the
Village entered into a contract with Millennia Consulting to develop a long-term community immigrant integration plan. Staff
assisted with coordinating a November 2009 study session for the plan that included 40 community leaders. A final plan is expected
in spring 2010.

The Marketing Division coordinated a ground-breaking at the new Police station in July 2009. The Marketing Division coordinated
various employee and community functions throughout the year.

Marketing/PI 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/PI 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 Metropolitan Exhibition Authority Board and
Rice Endowment Committee and serving as liaison to the Fine Arts Commission. Marketing/PI staff serves on the Centre East
Planning Team and oversee operations of Centre East, Inc.

The division continued to distribute New Resident’s packets to all new property owners and, in FY10, began a concerted effort to
distribute the packets by email whenever possible. This program complements the web site New Packet Request Form that is often
used by new occupants of apartments. The Marketing/PI Division also oversees the Freedom of Information Act Requests that
requires considerable administrative time to process.

The Human Services Division coordinates assistance for Skokie’s most vulnerable residents. The problems facing these residents are
increasingly complex and usually require the coordination of multiple social services. Various factors continue to effect requests for

service. These factors include the financial difficulties facing many residents, Skokie’s aging population, the larger and more diverse
general population and the number of chronically mentally ill residents requiring assistance.

       The Hazardous Homes Task Force meets in conjunction with the code committee when cases are active. When a case is first
       discovered, the committee chain of command is activated and corrective action is taken depending on the state of the property.
       There were five properties addressed last year.

       Senior Services are being provided by a team including four Human Services staff. Currently two regularly scheduled senior
       leisure programs are being held at Skokie Park District facilities and all senior program offerings are being advertised in the
       Skokie Park District Program Guide. The Smith Center is becoming the center for all Village related social work services. A
       Russian speaking social worker from CJE works at the Smith Center once a week meeting with approximately 10 people each
       week. Human Services has also hosted staff from CEDA Neighbors at Work to assist residents with LIHEAP applications.

       Given the increase in the number of residents requesting assistance in applying for Medicare Part D and Circuit Breaker
       programs, a cooperative arrangement was made with CJE to provide additional staff to assist residents with their applications.
       There is also one volunteer, a retired actuary, assisting the staff with these applications.

       On average, 46 residents per day are receiving home-delivered meals. Several village staff and many community volunteers
       deliver the meals for these homebound residents. This program is unique in that a medical diet is provided. Skokie Hospital
       prepares the meals for a significantly subsidized rate.

       The Community Giving Program, formerly known as Assist-A-Family, was redesigned to assist Skokie’s most challenged
       families in a more efficient way. Over $36,000 was contributed to this effort which, to date, has benefited 52 Skokie families
       who proved income eligibility, were raising children in the household, and had experienced a catastrophic life event in
       calendar year 2009.

       The Human Services Division is responsible for Neighbor Mediation. Numerous complaints are received throughout the year
       and include problems related to snow removal, noise, harassment, etc. Mediation is available when neighbors request a more
       formalized approach for resolving differences though none were initiated this year.

    The Youth Outreach Program has completed another successful year. The program works very closely with both high schools
    and middle schools as there are now four community resource officers in the schools. The program has averaged nearly 50
    tickets per month. Community agencies continue to provide community services, tobacco and drug education, counseling,
    truancy, anger management and curfew programs. The Village has purchase of service agreements with Peer Services,
    Metropolitan Family Services and Response Center for counseling, anger management and drug and alcohol education and
    treatment.

    There are on average 150 regular STAR (Senior Transit for Area Residents) users per month.

    The Human Services Division has led an internal effort to educate Village personnel on issues related to subsidized housing.
    A relationship has been established with the Housing Authority of Cook County (HACC) and regular communication has been
    initiated with a HACC staff person assigned to Skokie. The Human Services Division has also coordinated internal training on
    mass sheltering and is undertaking the development of a plan for mass sheltering. To this end an intergovernmental agreement
    with the Skokie Park District was executed this year.

    Human Services is represented on the Nuisance Ordinance Committee, assists with the review of the social service
    applications for CDBG funding, and is working with MIS to develop a relational database for the Division.

  The Management Information Services Division 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 to provide increased bandwidth
  for data and voice traffic, remote network access for employees via Citrix servers and Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology,
  and the use of virtualization for server and storage consolidation.

  Over the year, MIS staff completed and/or started work on a number of long-term projects. One of the most significant projects
  was replacing obsolete servers with new hardware, software, and virtualization technology. In April CDWG was awarded the
  project’s contract and an order for the new hardware and software was placed. The new server environment consists of
  virtualization software (VMware) running on high-end HP servers and a HP LeftHand storage area network (SAN). By August
  we had completed the virtualization project and had converted a number of old standalone servers to virtual machines.

  In September, the MIS Division began the second phase of the virtualization project. This phase is designed to consolidate,

  upgrade, and convert the Novell and GroupWise servers to virtual machines. By the end of this fiscal year, we will have
  consolidated our four existing Novell Netware servers to a single virtual machine running Novell Open Enterprise Server 2
  (OES2) for Linux. In addition, we will have converted our GroupWise email server to two virtual machines, providing improved
  email service and redundancy. The project will be completed in early FY11 when we install the new GroupWise client software
  on each Village workstation and train employees on the new system.

  Also in September, MIS began preliminary work on another major project; this one is intended to replace our aging Nortel
  telephone system with a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone system. In the first phase of this project, MIS staff
  conducted an audit of all the Village’s AT&T telephone circuits and services. We identified a number of circuits and services that
  were no longer needed and placed disconnect orders with AT&T in January and February. The saving from this phase of the
  project will be approximately $42,000 per year. In March we began work on the second phase of the project, replacement of the
  old telephone system with a new VoIP solution. We are currently working on the RFP and are targeting early FY11 for
  installation of the new system.

  Over the past year, MIS enhanced network connectivity between our buildings. Taking advantage of the Cisco switches we
  installed last year, coupled with available I-Net fiber, we doubled the bandwidth between our sites. Previously we used a single
  fiber to provide a Gigabit connection to each site with a second, dormant, fiber available as a backup. In the event of an outage on
  the primary fiber, we would have to manually switch the connection to the secondary fiber. Utilizing our new switches, we
  connected the secondary fibers and bundled them with the primary fibers to provide 2 Gigabit connections between each facility.
  In addition, this configuration provides redundancy should any one fiber suffer an outage. Network connectivity would still exist
  on the surviving fiber, with bandwidth decreasing to a single Gigabit. As a result, we increased bandwidth and, more importantly,
  added automated fault tolerance to the network.

  The MIS Division is no longer responsible for maintaining the Village’s Website (www.skokie.org), which is hosted by E-Gov
  Link. It is now overseen by the Public Information Division. The MIS Division will continue to assist the Public Information
  Division as needed, but will no longer directly maintain and update Website content.

  Over the past year MIS has maintained the Village-wide Intranet, Fire Department Intranet (both launched late FY09), and the
  Police Department Intranet (which was launch a few years ago). An Intranet is basically an internal website designed to share
  organizational information with employees. The Village-wide Intranet is intended to be a simple, yet useful tool that provides

  employees with a centralized repository of Village information. The Fire and Police Intranets contain information specifically
  related to their staff, such as the departments’ annual reports, strategic plans, and rules & regulations, and is not intended for
  Village-wide dissemination.

  In response to a request from the Finance Department, MIS created a test environment for SunGard/HTE on the iSeries/AS400.
  The test environment was needed so that Finance staff could test changes to the Case Management module using live data and
  ensure procedures worked correctly. The test environment contains all Public Administration modules (Purchasing, Building
  Permits, etc), not just Case Management, and can be tested with live data as needed

  In June, MIS staff, working with SunGard’s support department, planned and scheduled an upgrade of our SunGard HTE
  software. The upgrade took us from version 5.0 of the software to version 6.0, the latest edition currently available from SunGard.
  The modules affected by the upgrade include GMBA, Accounts Receivable, Asset Management, Building Permits, BP Field
  Inspections, Code Enforcement, Land Management, Payroll/Personnel, Planning & Zoning, Purchasing/Inventory, Cash Receipts,
  and Utility Billing. At the same time, the Public Safety Information Specialist upgraded the SunGard HTE Public Safety
  software, which includes all modules used by Police and Fire personnel. Both upgrades were successfully performed with
  minimal disruption to our end users.

  In July, MIS staff completed a mandatory upgrade of our RightFax application and server. The upgrade was required by our
  vendor before renewal of our annual maintenance contract, scheduled to expire in August. As a result, we are now running
  version 9.4 of RightFax and have a valid maintenance and support contract in place.

  In September, MIS staff upgraded our Symantec Antivirus server application and workstation client software to Symantec End
  Point Pro MR4. In October, we applied the latest patch, upgrading the entire system to update 5. As a result, all workstations are
  now protected with the latest version of the Symantec antivirus software, and the workstations continue to be updated with new
  virus definitions from the server on a regular basis.

  In October, MIS staff worked with the Manager’s Office and Health Department staff to set up a new automated attendant and
  call tree on the telephone system to provide recorded H1NI information to the public. Over the next several months, MIS
  maintained the call tree and updated it as needed. In January the Health Department completed the H1N1 vaccination program,
  and we removed the automated attendant and call tree from the telephone system.

    In January, MIS staff upgraded our ARCserve backup software to the latest version and installed the software on each of our
    virtual servers. This new backup software allows us to backup virtual machine configurations, as well as the data stored on them.

    MIS staff maintained all the databases utilized by various departments throughout the Village. Over the past year, enhancements
    were made to improve access to data and reports were developed for existing databases, including the Towing Database, Liquor
    Database, Fire Overtime Database, Fire Sick/Injured Tracking Database, and the TIU/Range Database. A number of new
    databases were created for various departments to improve their operational efficiency and/or to replace manual record keeping.
    The two most significant new databases were the Police Overtime Database and the H1N1 Database created for the Health
    Department. The new Police Overtime Database allows for better tracking and management of overtime. Reports are included to
    track year-to-date spending of overtime on an account-by-account basis, as well as on a departmental and individual basis. A
    report was also created to streamline, and simplify, payroll entry by administrative staff. The H1N1 Database was designed to
    help Health Department staff track information related to H1N1 school-based vaccination clinics.

    Throughout the year, MIS staff provided technical support to all Village employees. The division also upgraded users’ hardware
    and software as needed. In addition, MIS continued a program designed to increase technical support for Fire Department
    personnel. Each week, the Software Systems Specialist spends Tuesday and Friday mornings at one of the fire stations. These on-
    site visits have been successful in providing much needed MIS support to Fire Department personnel and have reduced the
    number of computer-related issues at the fire stations.

    Finally, MIS staff completed a number of training classes to learn new software and hardware applications, and to acquire new
    skills needed to maintain information technology used throughout the Village. These classes include, but are not limited to,
    Upgrading to GroupWise 8, Installing and Configuring VMware Infrastructure 3, ZENworks 10 Configuration Management, HP
    LeftHand SAN Basics, HP LeftHand Advanced SAN, VMware VSphere, and Introduction to Multi-Protocol Label Switching.

BUDGET ISSUES

The Manager’s Office includes an increase of $7,500 in anticipated increased legal costs for labor relations. This is a budgetary
adjustment intended to align the budget with spending history for past fiscal years. There are significant offsetting decreases resulting
in the Division’s budget being $30,000 below the FY10 level.

                                                                                                                                            160

The Personnel Division includes an increase of $5,000 for Village-wide training due to requirements to provide training to all
employees on harassment and violence in the workplace as well as the required supervisory training on the Family and Medical Leave
Act. Offsetting reductions in several line items have resulted in a net decrease of $14,695 in the overall division budget.

The Marketing and Public Information Division includes scheduled step increases of $1,562, which are offset by several line item
reductions resulting in a net overall decrease in the division’s budget.

The Multi-Media Division includes scheduled step increases of $3,533 and a $1,350 increase for travel and meetings, due the
reinstatement of the annual NATOA conference, which was removed from the budget for FY10. Offsetting reductions in several line
items have resulted in a net decrease in the overall division budget.

The Social Worker Division includes an increase of $2,969 for scheduled step increase.
The Transportation Division (STAR Program) has realized significant savings via a grant structured as a rider subsidy. Additional
savings have been realized as the Skokie dispatcher has been authorized to use his discretion in the number of buses released each
day.

The Management Information Systems Division: The MIS Division has only one budget issue for FY11. There is an increase in
regular salaries of $3,445 to cover scheduled merit and longevity increases for current MIS employees. However, offsetting reductions
in several other areas totaling $4,100 have resulted in a net decrease in the overall division budget. The reductions include the
elimination of $2,000 in travel expense normally allocated to attend the SunGard Public Sector annual user group conference,
elimination of $2,000 usually budgeted for telephone system service calls which will no longer be needed since we are implementing
the VoIP telephone system, and a $100 reduction in the Membership Dues line item.

MANDATORY INCREASES

0320          Professional Services        An increase of $7,500 is requested to offset the expenditure history in
                                           outside legal costs related to labor relations. The increase is offset by
                                           several reductions throughout the division’s budget ultimately resulting in
                                           a net overall decrease of over $30,000.

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, 2010 the Village had $69,040,921 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




                                                                                                                                             208
                                                VILLAGE OF SKOKIE

                                               DEPARTMENT NARRATIVE
FINANCE DEPARTMENT
Village may consider refunding more of its debt during Fiscal 2010. In all, the Village has issued refunding bonds six times and those
bonds were issued in 1994, 1998, 1999, 2002, 2003, and 2009.

The Village does not anticipate incurring additional debt during Fiscal 2011. The Village will, however, 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) as well as begin monitoring a third
TIF (the West Dempster Street TIF) to be established in Fiscal 2011; 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 refunding bonds should they be issued; 4) continue to refine the policies and procedures of the
Administrative Hearing Program for certain non-moving violations; 5) actively pursue compliance with vehicle registration
requirements of the Village Code by continuing the vehicle license scofflaw program; 6) aggressively pursue collections of debts
owed to the Village especially Administrative Hearing Program tickets; and 7) continue to market and provide web-based payments
services for the payment of utility bills, parking tickets, miscellaneous invoices, and vehicle stickers.

Planning: The Finance Department will analyze and advising the Board and Village Manager regarding major redevelopment issues
especially in the Village’s Tax Increment Financing Districts (TIF Districts). The Downtown TIF, which will reach its maximum 23
year life in 2013, will be the subject of intense planning with only several years remaining for redevelopment. A second TIF in the
Downtown area in was established 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 be approximately $20 million. The Village had received grant funding for the Swift Station project’s design and
construction and will obtain grant funding from Federal and State or County sources. The Village began the process to establish a
third TIF near the end of Fiscal 2010. The West Dempster Street TIF will be the subject of a required public hearing in early May and
the TIF is expected to be established subsequent to the hearing.

BUDGET ISSUES
The Finance Department's overall budget has decreased by 1.4% or $15,933 from the prior fiscal year. A contributing factor in the
decrease is the retirement of a part-time employee and the freezing of the position in light of the current economy.

Department wide, the overall decrease is due to the following factors:

Personnel Costs: Increases resulting from employees receiving longevity and step increases will be completely offset by savings
achieved by the freezing of the part-time position with a net decrease in personnel of $16,377.

Contractual Services: This expenditure category will have a decrease in the amount of $6,606. The reasons for the decrease are the
elimination of travel to several conferences and the initiation of a program to rotate specialty audits (hotel/motel and cable TV).
These savings have been partially offset by increased costs of the Administrative Hearing Program for certain non-moving violations.
 The number of hearings required to service the program has increased resulting in additional costs for the services of the Hearing
Officers.

PROGRAM REVIEW

Administration Division

In FY11, 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, economic development, planning, and zoning
issues.

                                                DEPARTMENT NARRATIVE
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, part of which construction will begin along
Skokie Boulevard in FY11. Community Development staff is working on the implementation of the 2020 Plan for Sector A:
Downtown that made land use and transportation system recommendations to integrate a Skokie Swift station into the downtown.
Staff, working with the Temporary Zoning Commission, is studying zoning changes to implement the plan. Temporary Zoning
Commission and staff will examine the zoning in the West Dempster Street area after planning studies are completed. The Community
Development Department, with a Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) grant under the 2010 Community Planning Program, will
work with a consultant to develop a Skokie-Dempster Station Area Plan. Significant effort was made by the Department, Public
Works, Engineering Division, and a consulting team to design a Downtown Swift Station and improvements to the surrounding
support areas. A station design has been completed and approved by the CTA, IDOT, and Village that is very attractive and will
create a focal point for the Downtown redevelopment. Construction of the station is expected to start in FY11. A consultant will be
hired to develop a plan for streetscape improvements in the station area. In FY11, major emphasis will continue to be placed on
guiding the redevelopment of the Illinois Science + Technology Park by Forest City Enterprises, the redevelopment of key Downtown
and West Dempster Street sites, and working with the Staff Downtown Taskforce on implementing the Downtown Action Plan.
Another significant project will be the design and construction of a multi-use path on the former Union Pacific right of way between
Oakton Street and Dempster Street.

In FY08, the Board of Trustees approved a Certificate of Occupancy Renewal Program to replace the Business License program for
most businesses. This program requires 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 was implemented in FY09, starting with
businesses that currently have a Business License. In FY10, all other non residential uses were brought into the program to assure their
compliance with Village codes and ordinances. In FY11, efforts will be placed on finding and adding uses to the system that may not
have received a Certificate of Occupancy in the past.

The downturn in the national economy has also affected the Village. Development and redevelopment activity has declined,
commercial and industrial vacancies have increased, foreclosures of single family homes and condominium units are at a high level,
and sales and manufacturing activity is down. In FY11, the Community Development Department will continue to emphasize
activities that stimulate economic activity such as provide the modernized zoning and other tools to promote development, increase
inspection activity to assure the maintenance of properties to community standards, and implement development incentives already

put in place by the Board of Trustees. The Department will also continue to implement the Vacant Building and Nuisance Building
ordinances that will help maintain the quality and safety of commercial and industrial buildings in the Village and encourage their use
by viable businesses.

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

Planning Division

As development activity continued to slow in FY10, the Planning Division shifted focus from current development to economic
development and worked to remove development barriers as the Village moves into uncertain economic times.

The most significant project of the Planning Division was the continued implementation of the 2020 Plan for Sector A: Downtown.
Through the efforts of both the Temporary Zoning Commission and the Plan Commission, a new R5 Transit Area Housing zoning
district was approved and zoning amendments further clarifying zoning definitions, adding commercial planned developments in
industrial districts, modifying recommendations and determinations by the Plan Commission, and reviewing antique and thrift shops,
manufacturing and wholesale trade uses, and crematories. Major development projects that were reviewed included Chicago Jewish
Funerals, expansion of both Swift Childcare and Mosaic Early Childhood Center, Kehilat Chovevei Tzion synagogue, a new Shell gas
station, major amendments to the Skokie Hospital site plan, the renovation of Alden Skokie Estates skilled nursing care facility, the
expansion of Arie Crown Hebrew Day School, and the proposed Ida Crown Jewish Academy. Numerous other special use
applications, subdivisions, and map amendments were also considered.

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,
125 of which are identified for vacation. To date, 96 of the 125 alleys have been vacated. The Planning Division expects to continue
the program in FY10, but the remaining alleys are becoming more difficult, costly, and time consuming to vacate.

The Planning Division has also secured a grant from the Regional Transportation Authority to study transportation and circulation
around the CTA Skokie-Dempster Yellow Line station as well as specific site development plans for the redevelopment of that
corridor. The finding of that study may trigger many other needed zoning amendments such as development regulations in the West

Dempster Street Redevelopment Area, review of all zoning districts in that area, and general on- and off-street parking policies. Other
increases in demand for Planning Division staff will result from the full implementation of the new Certificate of Occupancy program,
which will increase the number of Certificate of Occupancy inspections.

Staff has also spent a significant amount of time with the U.S. Department of Commerce preparing for the decennial 2010 Census and
will continue this commitment into FY11 assisting with completing the final count. Priorities will continue to be balancing the
probable increase in current development in FY11, supporting economic development, completing needed long-range planning
projects, and addressing the changing community needs due to the economic downturn. The Planning Division will reassess the
services currently provided in FY11.

Building Division

The economic downturn continued to impact construction activity. In residential construction, four permits were issued for new single
family homes. Three single family and six commercial demolition permits were issued. Fifty four new condominium units have been
approved for occupancy. Most of this activity occurred at the Optima development on Woods Drive. One hundred fifty five homes
were issued permits for additions or remodeling at a valuation of approximately $7,000,000. A high level of activity continued in the
area of residential maintenance permits for window and furnace replacements and electrical upgrades.

Commercial and industrial highlights included construction permits for extensive office renovations at 5202 Old Orchard, 4709-11
Golf and 9933 Woods Dr, a major phased project at North Shore University Health Systems at 9600 Gross Point and ongoing tenant
space construction at Westfield Old Orchard and the Illinois Science + Technology Park. The construction of the new police station at
at 7300 Niles Center is well underway and is on schedule. Regular inspections continue at the site. New construction for restaurant
spaces included a Subway at 3951 Dempster and two Dunkin Donuts at 3900 Dempster and 5150 Dempster. 210 new commercial and
industrial Certificates of Occupancy were issued this year.

In 2009 3,652 permits were issued. Permit fees were $553,000 with construction valuation of approximately $59,000,000.

Property Standards Division

The Property Standards Division is responsible for the enforcement of the Village adopted 2006 ICC Property Maintenance Code.
The primary Division objective is to provide comprehensive code enforcement for all existing structures and properties in the Village.


                                                                                                                                          243

                                                DEPARTMENT NARRATIVE
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT
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. The Division
administers the CDBG Home Improvements Program. Code enforcement activity is entered and tracked through the HTE code
enforcement software system.

This year the Division processed approximately 2,100 cases. Twenty percent of these cases involved inspections under the multi-unit
program. All cases generated over 4,700 inspections and reinspections.

The national foreclosure crisis continues to impact the Village. This year an additional 400 homes were entered into foreclosure code
enforcement process. Inspectors are assigned responsibility for code enforcement on foreclosed and/or vacant homes in their
designated areas. A notification procedure was implemented with Public Works for water shut offs to vacant homes.

The Request for Service Program experienced a thirty percent increase in cases and complaints. Staff responded to over 750
complaints of dwelling unit code violations, exterior litter, illegal basement apartments, vehicle 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 100 private property complaints, and an additional 60 incidents on public property. Staff
works closely with the Police Department, property owners and removal contractors on a swift removal as required by the Village
Code.

The Townhouse Exterior Inspection Program inspected 162 exteriors this year. This Program entails significant staff time in
enforcing compliance of parking lot repaving, replacement sidewalks and sewer repairs. This is due in part to the lack of management
associations for these older townhouse developments.

The CDBG funded Home Improvements Program provided 22 grants and 3 interest loan subsidies. A total of thirty two projects have
been completed. Program activity continues to increase.

The Administrative Hearing Program adjudicated 877 cases. A total of 396 new citations were issued, same as the previous year.
Seventy percent of the citations achieved compliance. Three requests for appeals were filed, two were upheld and one is under
review. The Program has provided an effective system for code compliance.

BUDGET ISSUES

Several staff changes have occurred in the Community Development Department providing an opportunity to review staffing, the
department’s organization, and services. As a result, the FY11 budget of $1,266,239 has been reduced by $217,602 from FY10 with
most of these changes being permanent. The Deputy Director, License Officer, and a Secretary retired and one Planner position was
not filled. Reviewing the operation of the department it was determined that the positions vacated by retirement would not be filled
and that the Planner position would not be filled unless the economy improved with more private development activity. The
elimination of the positions will save the Village almost $198,000 per year. The duties will be distributed among the existing staff and
some duties will no longer be performed that are duplicated by other departments or can be shifted to the State of Illinois. The Zoning
Technician position will be re-titled Zoning Administrator and will be responsible for working with the Zoning Board of Appeals,
overseeing the Certificate of Occupancy program, zoning compliance inspections, and all duties related to the occupancy of buildings.
Some of these duties were previously performed by the License Officer and Deputy Community Development Director. The Planner
position will be re-titled Planner/CDBG Administrator and 60 percent of the salary will be shifted to the CDBG program. This will
reduce the Planning Division personnel budget by $32,268.

The efficiency of the department will be improved by moving all of the administrative support staff, three secretaries and one clerk,
and by consolidating the purchasing of office supplies, postage and computer supplies into the Administrative Division. As one
department secretary position has been eliminated it is important to be as flexible as possible with the existing staff. The movement of
the support staff into the Administration Division has resulted in a $6,727 increase in the Personal Services budget, but, a reduction in
the Building and Zoning and Property Standards budgets. The purchasing of postage and supplies has also been centralized in the
Administrative Division to make the purchasing process more efficient and will result in an annual savings of $510, although the
budget indicates a $200 increase due to the shifting of funds. This year the Village has also stopped its annual contribution to the
Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) that has saved the Village $800 annually. This annual expenditure, that was
controversial at times, is no longer necessary as the agency is being funded by the State of Illinois.

In FY11 a $5,000 increase is requested for the Administrative Hearing program that is paid in part from the Property Standards
Division budget. The hearing program is used to adjudicate violations related primarily to engineering, health and property


                                                                                                                                            245

maintenance issues. The increase is requested to pay for the recording of judgments to help improve the collection process and for
increased salary costs. Also, a $5,000 increase is requested for code and design consulting services for development and construction
projects. This request is funded from the Building Division budget.

MANDATORY INCREASES

0101          Regular Salaries          An increase of $10,081 is due to several reasons, including annual adjustments for full-
                                        time personnel. One Intermediate Clerk and two Secretary positions were moved from
                                        the Building and Zoning and Property Standards Divisions to the Administrative
                                        Division. The elimination of one other department secretary position in the Economic
                                        Development Division made it necessary to better utilize the existing staff. The Building
                                        and Zoning and Property Standards Division budgets have been reduced to reflect the
                                        change. Costs are significantly offset by the elimination of the Deputy Director position.

0104          Overtime                  An increase of $505 is due to the relocation of the clerical positions and annual
                                        adjustments.

0580          Travel and Meetings       An increase of $1,620 for the Community Development Director to attend the American
                                        Planning Association national conference in Boston. This line item was temporarily
                                        reduced in FY10 because the director attended an APA conference locally in Chicago to
                                        obtain required certification maintenance credits. This increase restores travel expense
                                        for the national conference to this line item.

0610          General Office Supplies   An increase of $200 resulting from the transfer of $200 from the Planning Division
                                        budget and the elimination of the line item in Planning resulting in an overall department
                                        budget reduction of $200.

0611          Postage                   An increase of $210 resulting from the transfer of $210 from the Planning Division
                                        budget and the elimination of the line item in Planning resulting in an overall department
                                        budget reduction of $110.

0612          Computer Supplies         An increase of $250 resulting from the transfer of $250 from the Planning Division
                                        budget and the elimination of the line item in Planning resulting in an overall department
                                        budget reduction of $200.

MANDATORY INCREASES

0550          Printing and Binding   This increase of $600 is a result of consolidating the Printing and Binding line item
                                     with Photography and Blueprinting (0555) and Photographic & Drafting Supplies
                                     (0613) due to technological changes in both areas. The net change for all three lines
                                     is a reduction of $550 from the prior year.

                                                DEPARTMENT NARRATIVE
HEALTH DEPARTMENT
The Animal Control Division (3.9 FT, $236,165) enforces all Skokie ordinances pertaining to domestic animals through daily patrols
and investigation of citizen complaints. Staff assists citizens in regard to wildlife and rodent control concerns. Citations may be
issued for non-compliance with animal control ordinances. Animal control staff provides 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, diabetes screening, colorectal
cancer screening, immunization clinic, TB skin testing, and birth and death records. The Department is an approved Medicare
provider. This allows the Village to bill approximately $40,000 annually for influenza and pneumonia shots.

Highlights for the Health Department include:

   •   MASS PHARMACEUTICAL DISPENSING EXERCISE
       The Health Department staff, as well as staff from nearly every other Village department, conducted a large-scale medication
       distribution exercise at Niles West High School in FY10. To fulfill Emergency Preparedness grant requirements, and to test
       crucial response capabilities, the Village was the lead for this regional mass pharmaceutical distribution exercise which
       covered the Chicago Metropolitan Statistical Area. Hundreds of hours of work by staff resulted in an extremely successful
       exercise where the hourly output was nearly doubled with 10,683 bottles of medication dispensed which exceeded the goals
       that had been set.

   •   H1N1 INFLUENZA REGIONAL VACCINATION CAMPAIGN
       The H1N1 pandemic resulted in a massive effort by Health Department staff to prevent a major outbreak in Skokie. With the
       assistance of other Village departments and over 1,000 volunteers, the Health Department planned and implemented a multi-
       phase program to provide vaccinations to all at-risk individuals who wished to receive one. Phase 1 involved providing
       vaccinations to at risk school age children, school staff, and area EMS personnel. Clinics were held in 52 schools, preschools,



                                                                                                                                           272

     daycare centers and daycare homes with nearly 10,000 individuals being vaccinated. 258 EMS personnel from Skokie and
     surrounding communities were vaccinated when it was learned that the EMS lead hospitals would not be providing the
     vaccinations. During phase 2, four community clinics were held at Oakton Park Community Center. Due to a federal
     requirement, these clinics had to be open to any eligible individual regardless of residency. This resulted in 12,856 individuals
     from 193 different communities being vaccinated. In addition, more than 10,000 doses of vaccine were given to community
     partners for distribution. Phase 3 saw nine clinics being held at the Health Department for any Skokie resident who still
     wanted to be vaccinated but had not received one. Over 4,000 individuals were vaccinated. The remaining doses were given
     to local medical practices and other public health departments in need of additional vaccine to complete their programs. The
     Health Department received over $260,000 in Federal grant monies to help offset cost of this program.

 •   UPDATE OF ISOLATION AND QUARANTINE ORDINANCE
     The Health Director worked with the Village’s legal department to revise the Village’s quarantine and isolation ordinance.
     The original ordinance was very vague and would not stand up to a legal challenge. The revised ordinance is much stronger
     and will allow the Village to implement quarantine and isolation measures with due process to comply with state and federal
     law.

 •   PROGRAM AND FEE REVIEW
     The Health Department management team conducted a review of the Department’s programs and fees to determine program
     efficiency and fee levels. As a result of this review, the nutrition program was discontinued and the Wednesday evening clinic
     schedule was reduced. Fees were implemented for five programs where none had been charged before. Fees were also
     increased for four other programs.

 •   DIGITAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT
     A $47,000 grant from the Illinois Department of Public Health is being used in FY10 to transition the Health Department’s
     inspection and complaint programs from a completely paper-based inspection and complaint record system to an electronic,
     web-based system. The funding will cover the purchase of laptops for field use, updating current IT infrastructure, and
     incorporate existing documents into the new system. Staff is currently working with the vendor to develop the electronic



                                                                                                                                         273

       forms to be used in the field. It is anticipated that the program will go live in early to mid- FY11. This initiative will greatly
       enhance Health Department efficiency and service to the community, by decreasing the turn-around time for providing
       summary information and improving the ability to track trends.

   •   FOOD SERVICE ESTABLISHMENT FEE INCREASE
       In order to recover a greater percentage of the Village’s actual costs for environmental health inspection services, the Health
       Department proposed a change in the annual licensure fee structure for Food Service Establishments, with increasing fees
       based upon the facility risk categorization. After receiving approval from the Board of Trustees, the Health Department
       increased the annual licensure fee to $350.00 for Category II facilities, and $500.00 for Category I facilities. Category III
       facilities will continue to be charged the current $200.00 annual licensure fee. The increased fees will result in a projected total
       net revenue increase of $94,000.

BUDGET ISSUES
The Administrative Division increased its net budget by $579. The “Regular Salaries” line increased $2,990 due to salary adjustments
and step increases.

The “Travel and Meetings” line decreased $565 from a lower cost for the Director’s annual meeting.

There is a $1,300 decrease in the “General Office Supplies” line. This is due to the contractual availability for supplies for the
Department’s three laser printers.

The Environmental Health Division increased its net budget by $4,731. The “Regular Salaries” line increased $5,148 due to step
increases.

The Personal Health Division decreased its net budget by $5,649. The “Part Time Salaries” line was increased $1,241 due to a
scheduled step increase.

The “Professional Service” line was decreased by $270 due to the elimination of the nutritionist fee.

The “Medical & Lab Supplies” line was decreased by $5,600. This is due to anticipated decreased costs for the Department’s flu &
pneumonia vaccines and TB testing material.

DIVISION DESCRIPTION

     The Fire Department has five divisions:

     1.     The Administrative Division (4 FT, $438,775) 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, $457,999) 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 (65 FT, $5,459,171) 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.

                                                                                                                                       302

       4.      The Emergency Medical Service Division (47 FT, $3,964,767) 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 ($151,511) 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.

                                                                                                                                            303

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 continues to provide 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 calendar year 2009, (11) classes were conducted and 95
people received participation cards. Since its inception, 1,471 citizens have been trained. Three (3) 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 our existing fleet of apparatus with the refurbishing of Tower Ladder #16 and
Engine #17. 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 ISO Class 1 rating and the necessary requirements by which to maintain it.
In late 2010 or early 2011, the department will once again host an on-site inspection visit by representatives of the Commission on
Fire Accreditation International. Occurring every five years, this on-site will be our second re-accreditation inspection since receiving
our initial certification in 2001.

The Fire Prevention Bureau will once again prepare for our participation in the 2010 open house event. Our plan is to continue
focusing on fire safety and EMS. The third Citizen’s Fire Academy class in 2009 was another great success. Continuation of the
program is reflected in this year’s budget. Additional 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 principles, installed sprinkler systems and plan review. The Fire Prevention Bureau will continue its

                                                                                                                                            304

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 enhanced software and Geographic Information Systems
(GIS) will provide continuous tracking of 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. Providing
quality training for firefighters and officers remains a high priority. The training tower continues to be an essential element of our
ongoing training along with our continued participation in multi-company training at the Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training
Academy (NIPSTA).

The EMS Division is continuing to be successful with our 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 replacement monitor/defibrillator and improved automatic external defibrillators.

MANDATORY INCREASES

0101     Full-Time Salaries         An increase of $3,443 is requested for scheduled personnel increases.


0230     Other

         Employee Pensions          An increase of $1,332 reflects the necessary annual increase to the Fire Chief’s
                                    pension.

0320     Professional Services      An increase of $6,675 is necessary for all the associated costs of our upcoming re-
                                    accreditation site visit which is to occur no later than March of 2011. This event
                                    occurs every five years. Our last re-accreditation occurred in 2006.

0612     Computer Supplies          An overall increase in the account of $1,150 reflects a request for $3,500 to
                                    purchase NFIRS 5-Alive, an updated software package necessary to assist
                                    administration in successfully extracting statistical data and information currently
                                    stored within the H.T.E. environment. This extracted data will improve our ability
                                    to budget, strategically plan, enhance our standard of cover, and improve our
                                    annual reporting. The same account reflects a decrease of $1,000 for printer
                                    cartridges and the elimination of $350 for scanner supplies.

MANDATORY INCREASES


0330          Other Contractual Services                 An increase of $8,500 reflects the addition of the Village’s

                                                         to account for the annual cost of $17,000. The net increase
                                                         in the Fire E-911 budget is $1,813 as the result of a $2,350

                                                         associated with the old community messaging system and a

POLICE DEPARTMENT
Construction of the new Police Facility is progressing very well, and Department members are excited about the prospect of better
serving the community from this new headquarters. Nevertheless, on a daily basis staff continues to address the myriad challenges
created by the Department’s impending relocation to a new headquarters. To this end, a number of grants have been applied for in an
effort to ease the financial impact of the project. The Department has proven very successful with this initiative, and to date has been
awarded over $1,400,000 in grants with which to ensure the construction of a modern, state-of-the-art facility.

BUDGET ISSUES

Salaries
Through cuts in programs, materials and supplies, and the temporary elimination of salaries for two sworn police officer positions
frozen last year, and two additional positions (sergeant and police officer) this year, the Police Department was able to achieve a
reduction of $233,092 in its FY11 budget request.

Programs
While some traffic-related grants have expired, a new Holiday Mobilization grant in the amount of $43,953 was awarded to the
Department for the funding of overtime for traffic enforcement campaigns around pre-determined holidays. The Department was also
again awarded a Local Alcohol Program Grant, this year in the amount of $140,036, with which to target impaired drivers. Applications
are pending for additional traffic-related grants.

Equipment
The Police Department seeks to replace damaged and stolen vehicle immobilization devices on an annual basis. Each year, violators
seek to circumvent the parking scofflaw program by disabling or removing vehicle immobilization boots, resulting in few units
available for enforcement. These devices are critical to ensuring compliance with parking ordinances throughout the Village. The
Police Department seeks to continue the replacement of Portable Breath Testing (PBTs) devices and Passive Alcohol Sensors as well.
These devices are integral to the Department’s DUI countermeasures efforts, and are reflected in the Uniform Patrol Division budget.

FY11 OBJECTIVES

The Field Operation objectives are to:

     state resources. STEP grants are designed to increase occupant protection usage and to reduce DUI through hire back
     enforcement. This program provides for participation in special enforcement campaigns such as “Click It or Ticket” and “You
     Drink & Drive. You Lose”. This program includes up to ten enforcement periods.
 •   Begin the replacement purchase program of emergency light bar and control head systems using updated technologies for police
     vehicle operations to enhance emergency vehicle visibility and enhance officer / motorist safety to peak conditions.
 •   Continue programs targeting youth-related problems in and around area parks through a combination of Cook County Judicial
     Advisory Council grant funding and local budget funding.

                                                    storage, and/or transfer to a state crime laboratory. This account has not
                                                    been increased in 2 years. Due to the reduction in other line items, the net

                                                    police facility. There will be numerous additional work areas and work
                                                    stations which will need supplies and materials, and these costs cannot be
                                                    absorbed into the current budget. Due to the reduction in other line items,

                                                     pay increases.

0104          Overtime                               An increase of $620 is due to annual increases for personnel.

0430          Equipment Maintenance Services         $500 is requested to offset increased costs for the maintenance contract for
                                                     police mobile and portable radios. The increase was caused by the
                                                     expiration of the initial warranty for a number of radios.

                                                     on an as-needed basis. This is part of an ongoing replacement program
                                                     and represents no increase in requested funds.

MANDATORY INCREASES

   0430       Equipment Maintenance Services        $49,774 is required to offset the projected increase in maintenance costs
                                                    associated with the new police facility. Due to reductions in other line items,
                                                    the net increase required is $47,978.

   0621       Fuel for Heating                      $21,119 is required to offset the cost of natural gas for the new police facility,
                                                    based upon the recommendation of the Public Works Director.

   0650       Fire and Other Safety Supplies        $500 is required to offset supplies and materials for special events that now
                                                    recur annually, including the Fourth of July parade and fireworks, high school
                                                    parades, the BackLot Bash, charitable runs, and the Village open house. The
                                                    operational supplies and materials needed can no longer be absorbed out of
                                                    line items earmarked for other purposes.

   0799       Other Equipment                       $2,850 is again requested for the annual replacement of preliminary breath
                                                    testers (PBTs), passive alcohol testers, vehicle immobilization boots and
                                                    similar equipment. Preliminary breath testers can confirm an officer’s
                                                    suspicion of an impaired driver, and often permits additional evidence to be
                                                    obtained in DUI arrests. Passive alcohol sensors are hand-held, rapid alcohol
                                                    detection instruments. The sensor combines a police-grade flashlight with a
                                                    sampling instrument capable of detecting low levels of airborne alcohol from
                                                    a person’s breath, and is used in DUI and Zero Alcohol Tolerance
                                                    enforcement. The vehicle immobilization boots have proven invaluable to the
                                                    Vehicle Scofflaw Program. Most of the Department’s boots are now in excess
                                                    of seven years old and showing wear and corrosion. Further, an average of
                                                    two boots are damaged or stolen annually, reducing the Department’s capacity
                                                    to fully enforce the program. This account would also be utilized to purchase
                                                    equipment necessary to enforce newly created laws such as the new statute
                                                    regarding tinted windows. The law, which is effective January 1, 2010, will
                                                    necessitate the purchase of window tint meters at a cost of approximately

MANDATORY PROGRAMS

0330          Other Contractual Services                 $8,500 is required for the maintenance and operation of the
                                                         Village’s new community messaging (reverse 9-1-1)
                                                         calling system. The system replaces the antiquated
                                                         community messaging system that had been in operation
                                                         for many years. An equal amount has been budgeted by the
                                                         Fire Department to account for the annual cost of $17,000.
                                                         There is no net increase in the Police E-911 budget since
                                                         there are savings due to the elimination of maintenance
                                                         costs associated with the old messaging system and
                                                         reduction in telephone lines that are no longer required.

PROGRAM REVIEW
1.  Departmental staff received NIMS training, defensive driving, snow plow training, Supervisory Academy and safety related
    training including confined space, trenching & shoring, chain saw safety and working around electric lines. Staff continues to
    be involved in the development of the driver’s simulator program at NIPSTA, and participated in the NIPSTA Open House
    event.
2.  Continued to assess the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of environmentally friendly “green” practices in terms of equipment
    and service provision, building maintenance, utilities and other initiatives all with the overall objective of benefiting and
    improving the environment. Skokie has achieved Gold Level Certification under the Clean Air Counts Program. The
    department continues to research other initiatives for alternative fuel vehicles. Alternative fuel options are being monitored as
    the industry and fueling options evolve. The Department continues research anti-icing and pre-wetting technologies in order to
    study their cost-effectiveness and efficiencies in an effort to reduce the amount of salt required during winter.
3.  Departmental staff continues to work with the Marketing Division on strategies to better inform residents on programs such as
    the flood control system, yard waste, leaf collection, and winter operations. Construction updates and maps are being provided
    in the NewSkokie, on the Village web page and in Village E-news.
4.  In concert with the Risk Management Office, continued the review of personal injury and property damage accidents with
    departmental Management Team and Accident Review Committee to ascertain loss exposure and to seek ways to reduce the
    chances of such accidents and lessen Village exposure to liability.
5.  Continued regular inter-departmental review of permitting and private development plan review with the Community
    Development Department. Began inter-departmental meetings with Fire’s Management team in an effort to better plan for
    equipment replacement, janitorial supply management; and create a forum for effective communication and discover potential
    cost reductions in the Buildings budget.
6.  Continued the coordination of the Commercial Recycling & Refuse Franchise Program. Departmental staff continues to
    research for methods to increase residential recycling. Single family recycling collection continues to work on a once per week
    schedule, as it has since June, 2008.
7.  Continued to be an active participant in the GIS Consortium efforts and working with the GIS consultant on the water and
    sewer infrastructure planimetric layers. The water infrastructure layer is substantially completed, and Department staff
    participated in evaluating the usefulness of a topographic layer.
8.  Public Works continued to administer the mandatory and voluntary sidewalk replacement programs. Replaced hazardous
    sidewalk in the area bounded by Dempster Street and Old Orchard. A total of 19,800 square feet of sidewalk was installed
    under the MFT program.
9.  A new salt truck was ordered with a combination-style dump body. This body will save time when converting to salting
                                                                                                                                        402

      operation. Conversion time will drop from about three hours for a standard body to about 15 minutes for the combination body.
       The remaining three quick hitches have not yet been ordered.
10.   Preventative Maintenance for fleet vehicles and emergency generators was performed, including load testing to comply with
      Fire, Police and Public Works accreditation requirements. Public Works is also participating in quarterly command staff
      meetings with the Fire Department in an effort to improve building maintenance performance and communications.
11.   Staff continually monitors new, cleaner, and more fuel efficient technologies for the Village fleet. At this time, there are no
      hybrid vehicles scheduled to be purchased or replaced. Public Works continues to evaluate the village fleet for the next hybrid
      purchase.
12.   There were 60 miles of alleyway graded.
13.   Public Works continues to utilize the Cook County Sheriff Department’s Alternative Work Program for landscape maintenance
      and litter control, specifically at the Channel Park.

      the Growth Award again for the thirteenth time.
16.   In June 2009 thirty-four (34) American Elm trees were treated with Arbotech fungicide for the American Elm Tree Fungicide
      treatment program.
17.   The tree re-inventory has been completed and all data has been updated. The areas finalized include Forestry sub-zones 12, 13,
      14, 15, 16, & 17. This area can be described as follows: From Golf Road south to Church Street, and Terminal Avenue west to
      the Village limit; and from Church Street south to Dempster Street and from the western Village limit to Kenneth Avenue.
      Because of the re-inventory, 40 hazard trees were identified for removal and two trees were noted as needing a hazard prune.
      The work will be completed in winter 2009-2010.
18.   The contractual tree pruning has begun for this year. Areas to be pruned that are targeted for this year are: from Golf Road
      south to Church Street and from Kilbourn Avenue west to the Village limit; from Church Street south to Dempster Street and
      from the west limit to Kenneth Avenue. Because of the increase in pruning costs a five-year pruning cycle is not expected to be
      maintained without future budgetary adjustment.
19.   The USDA Forest Service Re-Design grant project that includes Skokie, Wilmette, Evanston, and Winnetka was finally
      awarded. The project is called “A Tale of Four Cities” and hopes to integrate the continuous forest concept with the
      technologies of GIS/GPS, Stratum/i-Tree urban forest management tools, and hyper-spectral and satellite imagery. The project
      is just getting underway.

BUDGET ISSUES
The FY11 Public Works budget has increased by $26,749 or 0.26%, due exclusively to a 1% annual wage adjustment effective on May
1, 2010. The original budget request represented a total decrease of $30,984 when compared to FY10 (or 0.3% overall). Significant
reductions include the removal of building maintenance for the new Skokie Police Headquarters. The Laramie Headquarters will
remain in Public Works’ budget in a minimum maintenance capacity as the station and site are prepared for sale or redevelopment. For
at least FY11, Facility maintenance and cleaning will be located in Police Department accounts. A significant reduction in Refuse
Disposal is attributable to the reduction in disposal of large branches and logs, as well as an increase to the Village’s credit from
SWANCC. A significant increase in the proposed budget in the Traffic Engineering Division was eliminated by moving the planned
change-out of mercury-vapor street lamps into the Capital Improvements budget. These lamps are planned to be replaced with metal
halide ballasts and lamps, which consume less electricity and are environmentally friendly. This switch-out is also indirectly mandated
by legislation. The remaining general-fund accounts for Public Works will see little to no increase outside of salary and contractual
requirements.

FY11 OBJECTIVES
1. Continue to implement and provide specific specialized training to appropriate departmental staff including life/safety issues,
   customer service, diversity training, driver’s training and field operations, and diagnostics. Assist in the formalized provision of
   training through NIPSTA including driver simulation.
2. Continue departmental efforts in replacing equipment and augmenting existing fleet with requisite safety features. Install and
   evaluate equipment augmentations that will allow the department to improve efficiency and the effectiveness of its operations such
   as plow quick-hitches.
3. Continue departmental efforts to improve preventative maintenance programs as they pertain to fleet and building maintenance.
4. Continue to assess the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle options.
5. Continue to assess the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of environmentally friendly practices in terms of service provision,
   building maintenance, utilities and other initiatives to increase environmental benefits.
6. Improve and build upon the public information that is disseminated on the storm management program to provide better citizen
   understanding on how the system is designed to work. Furthermore, work with the Marketing Division on roadway construction
   updates and other programmatic changes such as recycling, yard waste collection, and other highlights.
7. Continue to administer the mandatory and voluntary sidewalk replacement programs.

MANDATORY INCREASES

0101          Regular Salaries                  $22,112: This increase reflects annual adjustments and salary steps for
                                                employees.

0330          Other Contractual Services        Charges for disposal - $5,000 Increase: The cost of hauling away and
                                                disposing of concrete, asphalt, and street and alley sweepings continues to
                                                increase. This request of an additional $5,000 will bring this line item
                                                inline with actual costs over the past few years, and will be offset by
                                                reductions in 0655.

0440          Rentals                           Increase of $416: The rental items that come out of this account cost
                                                $118.00 per month. This increase brings the line item in-line with actual
                                                costs and will be more than offset by reductions in 0590 and 0614.
