Only incumbents will appear on the Kendall Village Board ballot in April, as no newcomers were nominated at caucus Monday night. 

Board members Mike Crneckiy, Marlin Prell and Eric Schoenfeld will fill the three open spots.

• The village will have a public-survey meeting from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, when community members can express ideas on how to develop Glenwood Park. The meeting will be at the Kendall Community Hall. A chili feed and raffle fundraiser for the park also will be part of the event. 

• During his report, Public Works Director David Gruen noted that the village had a water main break on N. Railroad Street on Nov. 25. 

Also, volunteers recently had insulated and partially remodeled the Glenwood Park shelters, according to Gruen. “It looks good, and I think it’s really helping,” he said. 

The recent cold snap caused troubles at the village’s wastewater treatment plant, Gruen said. 

“Just one spot kind of froze up, and then water didn’t get to move like it should move, and then it caused a domino effect on things that kind of failed. It took us about two days of just spraying warm water up there and moving some pipes around. Down to zero up there, it looks like a million bucks, but if you start getting below zero … “

Gruen said a similar incident had never happened before. 

• The scaffolding is up for the new wellhouse at municipal well No. 2. Also, temporary power and water service are installed, though some backfilling still needs to be done. Difficulty in obtaining specialty parts for the project continues to be a problem.
