A. Streets – Mr. Stumpf started the discussion with the Bethany and Winter Lane Culverts.
Mr. Uhl stated that these projects were either at the Pre-Final or Final Design stage. Mr. Uhl stated that the Bethany Lane Culvert was original design as an Urban local road. This would allow for proposed sidewalks over the design culvert. Several board members believe that the project was over design for what is needed at this time. Mr. Uhl did remind the committee that the Village had looked into extended out from the existing culvert and that had created other issues. A point was brought up that the County may possible help out on the cost of the Bethany Lane Culvert if they still had plans of the improvement of Seiler Road, since Bethany Lane may be used as a detour.
Mr. Weber made a motion to recommend to the Village board to have the Contract Village Engineer along with the Village’s Engineer Technician get together and review the Winter and Bethany Culvert projects for possible bid and construction. Mr. Orrill seconded. Motion carried.
There was more discussion about street standards – Mr. Stumpf will meet with the Contract Village Engineer and Mr. Uhl and see what type of information was collected when the street standard study was done in 2011/2012.
Mr. Uhl asked the committee about the work that the committee was projecting for the D’Adrian Subdivision. If the objective was to do all of D’Adrian Subdivision or just the list of streets, in the D’Adrian Subdivision, that were approved at the September 6, 2016 Capital Project meeting. It was stated that just the streets in the D’Adrian Subdivision that was on the list for improvement. Mr. Uhl asked about the Oil and chip program, if the program was being performed every other year. It was stated that 2016 was skipped and would be cover under the 2017 program, however it was believed that there would be an oil and chip program for each year in the future.
Comments were made that the Village is looking at continuing the Lars Hoffman Crossing and that the Mr. Hughes, Mr. Catalano, and Mr. Uhl are still gathering information and working on a proposed five or more year street plan.

Mr. Weber made a motion to cancel the December 20, 2016 Capital Projects Committee meeting. Mr. Noble seconded. Motion carried.
Mr. Catalano brought up the idea of flip-flopping the Capital Project Agenda’s Old Business order. That one week the Streets, Sanitary Sewer etc. order would be in place. Then the next week the consideration of capital projects in and out of the business district would be first. No one express a problem with this idea. So the January 3, 2017 meeting agenda will start with, “Further consideration and prioritization of potential Capital Projects outside of the business district”.
