Oswego Village Hall NEW

The Oswego Village Board meets Tuesday night at 6 p.m.

Processing criminals and getting them to trial could become easier and faster as the Oswego Police Department is looking for approval of an agreement with the Aurora Police Department.

That’s because Aurora Police have the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network System, a forensics ballistics testing lab, quicker than sending evidence to the Illinois State Police Lab, according to agenda documents. It also links evidence nationwide.                        

In the Oswego Village Board meeting, trustees also will hear an updated report on pedestrian safety on Washington Street in the Oswego downtown area. 

However, the news from the Illinois Department of Transportation is not good.  So, the village is employing another study of the street and is reviewing an option of railroad quiet zones to assist in IDOT approval.

In  committee of the whole topics, the need of an information technologist will be featured. Administrative assistants are shown as needed in every village department, according to a study.

Five village streets will have portions resurfaced by D Construction of Coal City, the winning low bid by $100,000, and six streets will have patchwork.  Streets are expected to be completed by August.

Meanwhile, a Sheridan tree service firm is expected to be awarded a bid that will be jointly shared by Oswego Township and Oswego 308, the latter in emergencies.
