2023 Fleet Budget
The Fleet Internal Service Fund is a fund that helps the Village track and pay for the maintenance and replacement of fleet vehicles, equipment, attachments, and tools for Village departments (except for Police and Fire & Rescue). Maintenance and replacement costs are factored in for each participating Village department and paid through a pay-per-use system. The fund allows the Village to avoid borrowing and maintains the equipment used to provide essential services to Village residents.

In 2023, the fund will increase its revenue by charging higher rates, generating an estimated $179,112 from general government departments and enterprise funds. The fund will also be used to purchase a sanitation truck and tandem axle dump truck for a total of $594,062.

Solid Waste Collection
What Is Solid Waste Utility?
The Solid Waste Utility provides curbside garbage, recycling, and leaf collection for approximately 7,540 homes. The utility also operates the Residential Recycling Center, which offers hazardous waste collection on the first Saturday of each month, along with free compost, mulch, shred events, and holiday tree drop-off sites.

The adoption of the 2023 Solid Waste Utility Budget includes a $2.00 increase to $23.50 per month for unlimited collection and a $1.00 increase to $21.50 per month for automated or limited collection, which uses a smaller garbage container. The new rates will begin in January 2023.
