Jennings’ report will cover the Toys for Tots campaign, the South Jacksonville Fire Department’s Auxiliary Cookie Walk set to take place this Saturday, as well as a ditch clearing project and other items.

The Board will next hear reports from various committees such as Personnel, Finance, Public Protection, Parka & Tourism, and the Concert in the Cornfield committee.

Action items on tonight’s agenda include tax levy ordinances for the general fund and Road District #15. Trustees will also go over an ordinance for gaming licenses and discuss possibly amending an ordinance regarding liquor licensing. The Board will also review an engagement of services agreement with Benton & Associates, as well as a sexual harassment policy for the Village.
