The Montgomery Village Board is set to vote on the next expense in the process of building a new public works facility at its Monday meeting.

The board is set to vote on an agreement with Engineering Enterprises to put together plans for Aucutt Road improvements, site planning, and design engineering for the proposed facility at 900 Aucutt Road.

Agenda Documents say the village will pay $284,531 for the work. At the last village board meeting, the board approved a $1.2-million contract with Williams Architects to design the building and parking lot for the new facility.

Trustee Dan Gier told WSPY News earlier that building a new pubic works facility is long overdue.

The village board expects to sell bonds to pay for the new building. It's anticipated to cost around $14-million.

Also on the agenda for Monday's meeting is the first reading of the proposed tax levy. The village plans to levy for $2.2-million. That's an increase of $24,000 increase from the previous year. The village board wanted to keep the levy as flat as possible, but Board President Matt Brolley cautioned against it.

The village board plans to approve the levy request at its December 4 meeting.
