A review of the village of Romeoville's 2019-2020 budget showed some good financial news.
The village board heard a review of the budget at a meeting last week, according to a news release.
"The village continues to be in strong financial shape,” Romeoville Mayor John Noak said in the release.
The review showed an anticipated general corporate fund balance of nearly $31 million at the end of the year. In addition, over $20 million in capital projects will be completed by April 30, according to the release, including:
• Resurfacing of over 35 roads
• Decorative street lighting
• New public works facility
• New and upgraded water and sewer facilities
• Lighting at Romeoville High School baseball fields
• New fire engine
• Purchase of property for a future dog park
• Tennis court improvements
• K9 and officer memorial
• Village hall paths and sidewalks additions
The village also said its 2020-2021 budget could include a tax rate that would be its lowest since 2011.
There are more projects on the village's agenda, including the expansion of its athletic and events center along Route 53, construction of an adjacent fitness and pool facility, road resurfacing and a new bike path between Weber and Taylor roads.
