After hearing public comment and deliberation, the Glen Ellyn Village Board last night approved plans for the Diamonte Montessori school to relocate from St Marks Church to the vacant building and property located at 625 Hillside Ave, the former location of Christ Church.

GEL SHARE: Home Rule Sales Tax Decision to be Made on March 30

Last Tuesday, Village officials agreed to change the final read of the proposed Home Rule Sales Tax from Monday, March 23 to Monday, March 30 to accommodate one trustee who will be absent at the March 23rd meeting.

The Village Board is interested in having all elected officials participate in the vote on the home rule sales tax. Since one Trustee was going to be absent from the March 23 meeting, Village President Vicky Hase publicly asked Trustees at the workshop meeting of March 16 if they were available for a March 30 meeting. All trustees present indicated they were available.

GEL TEENS: Glen Ellyn Public Library Opens "AWESOME" Teen Scene

GEL_090319_TeenScene

Last November, the Glen Ellyn Public Library opened the Teen Scene, a space dedicated to teens to study, read, or just hang out. (See photos here)

When the new building was constructed in 1995 a wonderful space was created for the youth from birth through 8th grade on the first floor known as the Youth Area. The second floor was designated as the Adult Area. This approach left a void for the needs of the high school teens in our community.

Question 21: What purposes do you think cash reserves should be used for?

Terra Costa Howard: In my opinion, cash reserves should be used to balance the budget. For example, if our budget needs exceed our income, we may need to draw from our cash reserves to finance our initiatives. My belief is that is similar to a savings account that may need to be drawn on from time to time. The current economy and the potential that our future revenues will be less than our needs may force us to use our cash reserves.
