Here is a look at the agendas for the standing committees:
Public Affairs and Safety Committee
PAS Committee members will discuss a request from the Knights of Columbus to hold an electronics drop-off at the lot next to their hall near York and Vallette. The event would be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13.
Finance, Council Affairs and Administration Services Committee
- FCAASC will continue its discussion on incentive policies regarding tax increment financing and sales tax.
- Natural gas aggregation also is on the agenda. You would think with the success of electricity aggregation in Elmhurst that natural gas aggregation would be a no-brainer. Not so, says the city's aggregation consultant. Rough estimates indicate savings of maybe only $25 to $30 a year per household. Also, comparisons between fixed-rate suppliers and fluctuating-rate suppliers are impossible, suppliers cannot guarantee savings, and no other Illinois cities are offering such a program. This might be a short discussion.
Development, Planning and Zoning Committee
Alderman Mark Mulliner has requested the city complete a comprehensive zoning review of the downtown business district to see if any changes might spur development and to "facilitate the highest and best use for the area." This is the beginning of that discussion, and the only item on the agenda.
Public Works and Buildings Committee
- Stormwater is on the agenda of the PWB Committee Monday. Aldermen will hear a sanitary sewer update and a stormwater update regarding the new-home stormwater infiltration policy.
- They also will discuss staff training and the electrical safety program at the water reclamation facility.
- And, they're working on a draft policy for disposal of fats, oils and greases by Elmhurst businesses.
All committees meet at City Hall, 209 N. York St., and public comment is welcome.
