  • The 2015 budget will be presented at the 11/11 COTW and its first reading will be on 11/18. It will receive three readings prior to year end.
  • The village has signed with Benefit Strategies and Medical Mutual for the Village’s 2015 healthcare coverage with an increase of 11.87% from 2014. There have not been any changes in coverage.
  • The village has signed with PEP for property and liability insurance for coverage in 2015.
  • There is a resident whose previous employer was incorrectly withholding North Baltimore Tax from his paychecks.  The tax years span from 2008-2013.  Per CCA this is a legitimate claim and they mentioned he is due a refund.  The issue is that tax years from 2008-2010 are out of statute and can only be paid with the Village’s consent.  Years 2011-2013 will be going through the process automatically.
  1. From 2008-2013, this refund is roughly a few hundred dollars.
  1. The Income Tax Review Board has agreed to refund the entire amount from 2008-2013.
  • I have been in touch with PEP and Huntington regarding the check fraud. It appears this will be an approved claim with PEP, and we will be potentially reimbursed for the full amount.
  • During this period of transition, both April and myself were able to effectively complete utility billing procedures, and the utility bills were sent out on time. It is worth noting that April Dick has been a large part of this smooth transition – she has been a valuable asset in the operation of the administrative office.
