During the West Chicago City Council’s December 5 meeting, the Council adopted the annual budget for the City of West Chicago.
The City’s Annual Budget serves as a comprehensive financial plan and strategic guide for the City as an organization. It provides a forecast for anticipated revenues for the coming fiscal year, as well as adopted expenditures that guide the services provided to the residents and businesses.
The 2023 Annual Budget totals $52.3 million, which is an increase of 6.31% as compared to the 2022 Budget.
Some highlighted larger expenditures for the 2023 Fiscal Year include the following:
- $600,000 for costs associated with the remediation of property along West Washington Street;
- $1.7 million for the engineering and construction improvements to the City’s Sanitary Lift Station #5; and
- $3.1 million for City-wide road improvement projects.
Also, as part of the 2023 Annual Budget, the City will be proceeding with other substantial projects that include conducting a space need analysis as the preliminary phase of the process of building a new City Hall facility, and renovating Sesquicentennial Park into a larger grounds display in partnership with Ball Horticultural.
