Lakewood’s Movement Toward New Village Hall Has Slowed

Lakewood Village Board meets on the topic of a new Village Board.

Lakewood Village Board meets on the topic of a new Village Board.

I asked Lakewood Village President Erin Smith what was up on the public-private partnership to build a new village hall.

Her answer:

“Not much yet.

“We decided to slow things down to do more thorough research.

“We directed staff to begin the process of soil borings, etc. that are required before we can solicit a more realistic proposal.

“We are getting bids on this work and will vote on this step at our first meeting in February.”

I asked about the status of the public-private partnership and got this reply:

“Yes, we will consider the concept proposed by the consortium, but we will also consider more traditional approaches using local builders based on resident feedback.

“We deferred this discussion until after the site discovery work is completed.

“We have slowed things down a bit to provide additional opportunities for public input.”

  1. I applaud the board for doing a thorough and transparent job. Thank you.

  2. I hope the Board does a thorough job, at no taxpayer expense, as in consultants.

    Hey Erin, where is the Golden Screw Award, that Lakewood was given . . . please keep that in mind.

    Take a stand, put it up and let the residents know it will not happen again.
