More than 3,500 solar panels being installed at the city's water reclamation center to generate power for Naperville

Installation of more than 3,500 solar panels that could generate more than 1.6 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually is expected to begin this summer at Naperville’s Springbrook Water Reclamation Center.

When completed, the six acres of high-efficiency solar panels will produce enough energy to power 145 homes a year, according to Staci Wilson, director of government affairs for the Illinois Municipal Electric Agency.

Naperville’s solar project will come at no direct cost to the city as the Illinois Municipal Electric Agency, of which Naperville is a part and where the city gets its power, is commissioning the facility, Wilson said. A developer will build and fund the project.

Indian Prairie District 204 may hire consultant to fight new Route 59 TIF districts

Indian Prairie District 204 may hire consultant to fight new Route 59 TIF districts

Indian Prairie District 204 officials, worried that the city of Aurora might offer economic incentives to Route 59 developers that could affect their schools, may hire a consultant to represent the district’s interests.

Aurora unveiled Route 59 corridor revitalization plans Dec. 6 at an open house.

A design company was hired by the city to study its side of the Route 59 between Liberty Street and Montgomery Road in light of the changing retail landscape and the Fox Valley Mall’s loss of Carson’s and Sears as anchor stores. The other side of Route 59 is in Naperville.

Naperville planning to hike fees for annexation, building and development

Naperville planning to hike fees for annexation, building and development

Fees for services involving annexation, plan review and construction in Naperville could be increasing by 10 percent to bring the expense more in line with what it costs the city to do the work.

The city estimates the cost for employees to provide services like permitting, inspections and entitlement services is $2.8 million, but developers and business owners are only paying $2.2 million. An initial analysis found the greatest loss of revenue was in the entitlement services, which includes things as plan review, staff reports, ordinances, contract negotiation and legal review, according to city documents.

A fee increase for services involved in annexation; development, zoning and subdivision; construction and new development would bring in an additional $200,000 annually if the work level stays consistent.

Will County Clerk to take over seven Aurora precincts

Will County Clerk to take over seven Aurora precincts

On March 20, 2018, the residents of Aurora voted to dissolve the Aurora Election Commission.  This means Aurora residents who live in Will County now have a new Election Authority.   “We are going to make this transition as seamless as possible,” says Will County Clerk Nancy Schultz Voots.  According to Voots, “All Aurora residents who were registered with the Aurora Election Commission will be receiving voters cards as well as our Voter Information Guide providing them with their early voting location, polling place on Election Day, and other important information for the November 6, 2018 General Election.”

On July 19, the Will County Board approved the proposal to condense the current seven precincts Will County will be taking over into four.  “We decided to consolidate these seven precincts into four to reduce the cost of purchasing new equipment and other election supplies,” County Clerk Voots explains.
