ComEd had a representative present to the Board a review of their efforts to improve service and reliability. ComEd plans to continue with improvements to their system throughout 2016. Some of the work presented included additional feeder lines and infrastructure improvements. Their hard work is paying off for residents.  Last year there was a drop in the frequency of outages and the duration of outages. Customers are encouraged to log on to ComEd.com to see where planned work will be initiated. They also have an app that residents can download. Trustee Alex Olejniczak spoke highly of the commitment to service that ComEd has with residents. Trustee Terry Vorderer appreciated the accessibility he has had with their staff.. 

St Gerald Parish was approved for the Annual Pumpkin 5k. Last year there were about 200 participants and about 100 "Little Pumpkins."  Altogether they raised over $10,000. Mark your calendars for a day of fun in October.

Finance Director Brian Hannigan gave an overview Oak Lawn's pension liability. Our goal is to reduce this number while keeping taxes low for residents. However, caution was given that strict discipline will be required for the Board over the next 10 years. The Board was presented with details regarding the the requirements for the future. A formal funding policy will be voted on at the next Board of Trustees Meeting on May 10th.  This formal funding policy will ensure that rating agencies are able to evaluate Oak Lawn in a realistic fashion.
