MEETING CALLED TO ORDER
The meeting was called to order on February 3, 2020 at 7:02 p.m. at Countryside Fire Station #1, 801 S. Midlothian Road, Mundelein, Illinois 60060 by President, James Melledy.
HOMEOWNER FORUM – PUBLIC COMMENT
Rose and Werner Brisske announced that they were recording the meeting. Marilee C.C. Rusiniak and Nicki Sullivan officially objected to being recorded and requested the objection to be recorded in the minutes. Nicki Sullivan announced she would also record the meeting.
Nathan Wysocki requested information regarding the fee for new construction homes connecting to the WSPC water Main. It was explained that the fee had been in place prior to the installation of the well and has been assessed to all “new” homes built in the subdivision since the 1980s. Unfortunately, due to a miss-communication somewhere between WSPC, Village of Lake County, construction manager, and the homeowner of the new construction, the water-hook-up fee had not been clearly outlined to the new owner. There will be an investigation of where the communication break-down occurred to avoid possible miscommunication in the future regarding the water system hook-up fee.
