7:12:02 PM Rombach Introduced himself as Jerry Rombach, Executive Director of the Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois. He said he is responding to discussions the Trustees had regarding the pursuit of public improvement fees to be levied against development of new homes and new subdivisions in the Village of Maryville. He said they understand the pressures that communities face in dealing with growth, particularly the growth at the level the Village has experienced the last few years. He said they think there are alternatives that might be pursued, and they also believe that the benefits of the new housing development that occurs is a benefit that goes beyond the addition of new families. They think there might be aspects of this consideration that the Village has not explored. He said he has given the Mayor a copy of a report he has prepared for his Association that summarizes 18 research projects that were done on the subject of consequences to communities and to the development community in towns and Villages where impact fees are pursued. He asked the Village to consider all aspects. He said they would like to create a working group for Maryville as they have done for other communities to look at the ordinance being proposed, and hopefully they can collaborate on an approach to funding public improvements that is fair to the community, fair to the citizens, and is also fair to the housing industry.
7:17:53 PM Gulledge Commented he has not given the Board a copy of the report.  Normally, this type of thing is discussed in the Caucus meetings, and he plans on giving a copy to each trustee for discussion then. He commented also, for the record, there has been nothing discussed other than road improvements, and this is strictly in the discovery area at this time. No decisions have been, and he and the Board will consider anyone's point of view. He said they are at least 30 days, minimum, before gathering any information. He told Rombach he will call him and let him know when the meeting would be.
7:19:30 PM Rombach Responded that he would appreciate it. He commented that he knows from experience that this is the right time where they want to be regarding this matter. He spoke about being too late with presenting their position when the tap fees were raised.
7:21:46 PM Gulledge Went to Trustee Comments.
7:21:57 PM Schmidt Commented that he wanted to take a minute to tip a hat to Southwestern Electric. This is the second year in a row that they have not charged customers for electric service in November.
