Village Budget

Village of La Grange Park Budget Cover 2021

The Village Board approved the new fiscal year Budget, which began on May 1. It includes a number of revisions made in anticipation of fiscal impacts related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The revisions are both structural and procedural and intended to prepare the Village for greater financial resiliency. It includes reductions to both revenues and expenditures but maintains capital work planned for the coming year, including the resurfacing of Meadowcrest (at Garfield), water main replacement along 31st Street, new public parking spaces on Beach (north of 31st Street), sewer lining, new financial software and a new phone system. The budget also includes a number of technology upgrades to support more streamlined services. These include new e-ticketing within the police squads, a new electronic policy and training platform (Lexipol), new scheduling software and the implementation of Geographical Information Systems for asset management. The Village was able to take advantage of some cost savings resulting from Countryside’s Police Department joining the consolidated dispatch center (LTACC) we share with La Grange and Western Springs.    

The approved budget includes the suspension of any increases to the Water and Sewer Rates for one year. This will provide some financial relief to residents,  although it will likely prolong the completion of future water main projects. Along with the approval of the Budget, the Village postponed the renewal deadline for Village Vehicle Stickers until October 31, 2020.  Dog tag renewal licenses will also coincide with this timeline.  Finally, to remain agile to changing fiscal conditions, the Village will engage in a three-month Budget review and thereafter as deemed necessary.
