Roselle to host Sept. 14 forum on investing in infrastructure
Over the next decade, Roselle has to complete a number of critical and mandated infrastructure updates that will require the village to secure additional funding for infrastructure.
In order to build a strong future for Roselle and develop a funding plan that strikes a balance between creating new revenue sources and borrowing funds, village officials and staff are seeking the community's input.
There are a few ways to join the conversation.
An "Investing in Infrastructure" community forum will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, at the village hall, 31 S. Prospect St.
Learn about solutions to increase funding for infrastructure and share your questions and feedback. No registration is required.
Members of the board also will be available at village hall to discuss your questions and hear your feedback in an informal setting during "Coffee with the Board" at 10 a.m. Saturdays, Oct. 7 and Dec. 2.
Take the "one-question" survey: Which funding solution is the best fit for our community?
The survey open until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17.
To maintain the community's infrastructure, the village manages several annual infrastructure improvement programs, such as: street and storm sewer improvements; street maintenance; sidewalk, streetlight and water main replacements; backflow prevention; and yard flooding assistance.
The village systematically reviews infrastructure needs to prioritize and plan for future updates. Go to the website to view the "2023-2027 Capital Improvement Plan" in the FY 2023 budget, which also includes more information about the annual infrastructure programs.
