District Trustee Update
District 1 Trustee Dan Whittington (630) 518-2457 The end of summer means a new beginning for fall. As fall welcomes winter, winter will become
spring. I am looking forward to all of the seasons in our downtown, as they each have their festivities and fun activities. We still have great weather to enjoy the many outdoor dining patios along St. Charles and S. Park. You may need a sweatshirt or jacket but it still it’s a great experience! Next spring, we all will welcome the new pedestrian underpass. Although a bit of an inconvenience cur- rently, when completed, it will enhance the downtown experience. I for one am very excited for the underpass, as it will welcome pedestrian and bike traffi c to our downtown. As always, be safe and contact me if I can be of service to you.
District 2 Trustee Mike Fugiel (630) 212-0040 While the Village is proud to be a Tree City USA award recipient since 1990, it is diffi cult to accept the damage the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has done to our trees. EAB is now prevalent throughout the northeast United States and removing dead ash trees has been a huge task for many municipalities and homeowners. Approximately half of our 2,995 parkway trees have been removed to date. The budget for the Village’s removal program is being increased to $360,000 annually in order to hasten the removals to conclude in 2018, which is three years earlier than initially planned. Removals will continue both by the contractor and our in-house crew through the winter. I wish to thank our constituents in District 2 for their patience and cooperation. Your positive attitudes and input make it easier to serve our District. Feel free to contact me anytime.

District 3 Trustee Reid Foltyniewicz (630) 621-2861 Happy Halloween! Halloween is on a Friday this year, which means kids and adults may get a little extra rambunctious. If you see any suspicious activity, remember to call 911. Continue to shop local by purchasing your Halloween costumes and pumpkins from Lombard businesses. Speaking of shopping local, Christmas is right around the corner. Be sure to shop at Lombard’s many wonderful retail establishments for your holiday gifts this season. Let’s be friends!

District 4 Trustee Peter Breen (630) 403-5963 This fall, the Village Board, along with the Finance Committee, is performing a line-by-line review of the proposed
budget for 2015. I started this review as your Acting Mayor two years ago, and I’m proud to say it’s now an annual practice. After many years of work, the resurfacing of Grace Street between Prairie and Sunset was fi nally completed in mid-August. The work was completed using in-house Public Works Department personnel, which in this case resulted in a 21% savings over the cost of having the repair done by an outside contractor. The Village is seeking outside funding for a full reconstruction of the road and underground utilities, targeted for 2020/2021.
Thank you again for trusting me to be your trustee. Please call me at (630) 403- 5963 if I can help you in any way.
District 5 Trustee Laura Fitzpatrick (630) 426-0621 If you’ve been to the
Village’s website in the past few weeks, you’ll notice we’ve completely revamped our look. Village staff launched the new site in late summer after months spent considering how it should look and where pages should go. The goal of the new site is to have regular news and updates on the home page and the most- clicked pages in easy to fi nd locations. I’m happy with the way the new site looks and functions—and even happier to see the Village of Lombard continuing to advance its technology. Be sure to also sign up for E-News, the weekly email update from the Village. Sign up by going to villageofl ombard.org/e-news
. Enjoy your autumn months, and please don’t hesitate to call if I can be of assistance.
District 6 Trustee William Ware (630) 319-5805
Happy fall, Lombard!
A warm welcome to Z Nail Spa, which recently opened at 701
