The Village of Glenview

2022 Village Budget


Village staff has begun drafting the Village's budget for 2022. The budget is both the legal document detailing the spending authority granted by the Village Board, but it is also the document that communicates the goals and objectives of the Board which include both core services and new and ongoing initiatives.  As part of the development of the annual budget, three public budget workshops are held to allow the Village Board and public the opportunity to review and provide direction on the various operating and capital budgets.  The Budget Workshops and their tentative agendas are as follows:

  •  7 p.m. Monday, September 13 -- Financial overview; Capital Improvement Program budget

Staff presented the initial draft 2022 budget and draft 2021 projections at the September 13 workshop. Proposed for 2022 is a zero‐based budget that is projected to have an operating surplus of $253,642. We are anticipating some of the major revenue streams in 2022 coming in slightly higher than 2021. Staff is actively monitoring the Village's economically sensitive revenues and how they are performing in the continuing pandemic economic environment.

The budget tentatively set for the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is $25.6 million, with $15.4 million going toward road reconstruction and related underground infrastructure improvements, such as water and sanitary sewers; $1.47 million for road resurfacing; $3.22 million for stormwater-related projects; and $5.51 million for design, intersection and streetscape improvements, trails and other special projects.

Staff also presented information on the American Rescue Plan Act funding allocation to the Village, Corporate Fund Balance policy, and non-profit core service funding.

2021 Village Budget

The Village Board of Trustees on December 8, 2020 adopted the Village's budget for the coming fiscal year, which runs from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021.  

All meetings prior to the adoption were held virtually on Zoom, with instructions on how the public could view and participate in the meetings. Here's the 2021 budget review and adoption schedule; staff reports and other documentation were added as they became available:

  • 7 p.m. Monday, September 14 -- Financial overview; Capital Improvement Program budget
​​Staff is still determining the financial impacts of COVID-19 on the 2020 budget, and results of the COVID-19 Financial Response Plan to reduce expenditures. Proposed for 2021 is a zero-based budget projected to continue with some of the negative revenue effects of the pandemic, particularly sales tax revenue. The draft shows operating revenues are anticipated to be $2 million lower than the 2020 budget and operating expenses $932,000 lower than the 2020 budget. 

​​The budget tentatively set for the Capital​ Improvement Program (CIP) is $20.9 million, with $13.1 million going toward road reconstruction and related underground infrastructure improvements, such as water and sanitary sewers; $2.04 million for road resurfacing; $2.31 million for stormwater-related projects; and $4.8 million for design, intersection and streetscape improvements, trails and other special projects.
