II. PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE: The Pledge of Allegiance was led by a visiting Cub Scout Troop. III. POLICE DEPARTMENT PROMOTION: The promotion oath was given by Deputy Clerk Chris O'Grady to Sergeant Patrick Barron. IV. PUBLIC COMMENTS: George Vlasis of 10412 Linus Lane spoke about his displeasure with the proposed Property Maintenance and Management Ordinance. At a scheduled meeting with the Village Manager and Trustees Olejniczak and Quinlan last Monday (Nov. 26), a group of landlords and realtors presented a number of points that were pertinent to the the proposed Property Maintenance and Management Ordinance. Trustees Olejniczak and Quinlan took notes of their concerns and stated that there would be an amendment to the Ordinance. Pat Vlasis of 10412 Linus Lane stated that the Property Maintenance and Management Ordinance is not only looked at by the landlord, but the renter. She makes mention that renters are not second class citizens. They have rights to decide if they are going to be residents of Oak Lawn. They should not feel ashamed of renting property. Joan Berngen from Coldwell Banker located at 5840 West 95th Street would like to see a task force formed that could investigate for review the proposed Property Maintenance and Management Ordinance. Chuck DiNolfo of 10024 South Major Avenue stated that his business is in real estate and that he has dealings with landlords and tenants. The main thing he wanted to mention is that the Property Maintenance and Management Ordinance is tough on the landlords. Tom Joseph of 6655 Main Street, Downers Grove spoke about the Property Maintenance and Management Ordinance. Realtors are licensees to the State of Illinois and they abide by federal housing laws. This ordinance does create some concerns. He had concerns regarding many points listed in the ordinance. Mike Wallace of 4828 West 92nd Street spoke regarding traffic enforcement and street maintenance on 92nd Street at Cicero Avenue. There is a "No Right Turn from 4-9 p.m." sign posted southbound on Cicero Avenue at 92nd Street however, cars use 92nd Street to travel west to 49th Avenue, then south to Southwest Highway to avoid the long wait on Cicero because of commuter trains. The middle of the street needs to be repaired because of this. The street has not been repaved since 1994. He remembers this well, as it was when his daughter got married, and the Public Works Department sprayed the street so she wouldn't pick up asphalt on her dress. Kevin Olszewski of 5715 Edge Lake Drive spoke about the Property Maintenance and Management Ordinance. As a certified appraiser and real estate broker in the State of Illinois, two things missing in the ordinance are a grandfather clause and board up policies. Nancy Czerwiec of 10513 South Long spoke about the North America Union, a plan to merge Canada, the United States and Mexico. Erik Wiatr of 9929 South Cook spoke about the Property Maintenance and Management Ordinance. He does not feel that the property inspections are fair to Oak Lawn as a whole. Small time investors get hurt when the government imposes new fees and regulations on properties. He would like to see this ordinance reviewed by a formal committee of concerned residents and business people. James Reilly of 7035 West 182nd Street spoke about the Property Maintenance and Management ordinance. As a real estate broker, he manages property in Oak Lawn. He would like there to be discussion with business owners and landlords on this issue.

V.P. & B.O.T. REGULAR MEETING MINUTES #2007-26 (11/27/07)

Mary Wallace of 9409 South Sproat spoke about the Property Maintenance and Management ordinance. She states that the ordinance will affect so many people in Oak Lawn. The ordinance needs more time to review. V. APPROVAL OF MEETING MINUTES: Regular Meeting Minutes dated November 13, 2007. Trustee Rosenbaum moved, seconded by Trustee Quinlan to approve regular meeting minutes #2007-25, dated November 13, 2007 and authorize the Village President and Clerk to sign same.

MOTION PASSED UNANIMOUSLY. VI. NEW BUSINESS BY THE VILLAGE TRUSTEES: Trustee Hurckes congratulated the Public Works Department on a wonderful Christmas presentation on our Village Green. He also commended the Special Events Commission for their work on the Santa Parade. Trustee Hurckes commended Gene Wesolowski and the Oak Lawn Partnership along with a group of children who helped rake leaves on two Saturdays in November. They did a wonderful job. The 1st District Christmas Decorating Contest takes place the week of December 17th. Trustee Olejniczak also commended the work of our Public Works Department and our Special Events Commission on their hard work. On a serious note, Trustee Olejniczak received a complaint from a resident about a contractor. The contractor tried to do substandard work that was not within our Village Code and got caught. The resident had already given the contractor $12,500. He would like to bring the contractor up in front of the Board of Trustees and remove his business license. President Heilmann asked the Village Attorney, David Freeman what the correct process is regarding this matter. Village Attorney Freeman stated that if there was going to be a hearing that is a predicate to the contractor losing his license, the Village would have to give him notice and then have a hearing. The fraud provision in our Village Code would give us the ability to question the contractor with regard to the allegations. If the contractor wishes to continue doing business in Oak Lawn he will have to appear and explain himself or the Village can pull his business license. President Heilmann asked that Trustee Olejniczak inform our Village Attorney and the Village Manager when we can inform the contractor of a public hearing to explain himself. Trustee Hurckes spoke about the importance of making sure that residents use contractors that bonded and licensed in Oak Lawn. Trustee Olejniczak will proceed on this matter. Trustee Streit had nothing to report. Trustee Rosenbaum commended staff on the Santa Parade. He stated that the Holiday decorations look fantastic. Trustee Quinlan spoke with CSX Railroad regarding the train stopping in the morning affecting the crossing at 108th and Central. She has asked residents in Eagle Ridge to keep her posted on the traffic flow in that area. President Heilmann mentioned that if a Capital Bill is approved by the General Assembly we need to look into an underpass which is needed at that crossing. Trustee Quinlan stated that CSX has Federal money for this project. The State needs to release the money. Trustee Phelan commended the Special Events Commission on the great job at the Santa Parade. Trustee Phelan stated that there was a report regarding the Police and Fire Pensions. A two year investigation was conducted starting in December of 2005. Two years ago we were in our budget meetings and were discussing that we were assessed a $300,000 levy for the pension funds. At that time we asked the finance person a number of questions about the funds and then asked subsequent to that to get a full report on this. In the intervening 11-12 months we asked again a couple of times for that report, but it never came. Trustee Phelan also discovered during the investigation that the bank involved in the underpayment of interest was also involved in the management of the pension funds. It was at this time that we recognized it may have been a manpower issue. At this time Mayor Heilmann consulted the search team who helped the Village look for a Village Manager. He wanted them to find a finance person to bring in on a contractual basis to work on a couple of matters. This matter and other issues hadn't been worked on by the Finance Director in a timely matter. When it was announced about the hiring of a contractual finance person, our Finance Director gave her resignation that day.

Trustee Phelan stated what a significant issue this is. There is $120 million dollars in the Police and Fire Pensions. This is money that the Police and the Fire Departments own. Trustee Phelan and Village Treasurer James McGovern in May of this year, started on an investigation in to what we were doing with our Police and Fire Pension Funds. Trustee Phelan mentioned the things that were discovered. He stated that we had a structure that was ineffective. Five independent groups were working with pension money and none of them knew what the others were doing, and no one was coordinating their efforts. When statements were ordered from the bank for effectively $80 million dollars, fixed income on a bond portfolio we received statements from another bank. When Trustee Phelan called the number on the statement, the gentleman who answered the phone paused then said this was a sub-account of a sub-account directed through the other bank. Trustee Phelan requested performance information on the $80 million dollars. He was told that it was not set up to give performance information. An annual statement was requested. He was told that the account was not set up that way. The bank involved stated that the account was managed internally. $80 million dollars was managed by the staff. Pension Board Trustees were provided with reports that showed no performance information. Trustee Phelan stated that the Pension Board Trustees were provided with internally generated reports that showed no performance information, among other problems. Trustee Phelan reported that, of the $40 million that was invested in equities, approximately 75% of that was in Large Cap equities or funds. That area has done well in the last two to three years. However, the investment manager who had $30 million (of the $40 million) lost about 17% per year, each year, between 2000 and 2002. Of the two equity managers involved ($40 million), neither had made any changes in their investment strategies in years, one almost 10 years. The money just sat there. Two other stock managers who handled $10 million dollars hadn't made any changes in 10 years. The money just sat there. Trustee Phelan had concerns about the reporting that was done. Bonds were listed as assets that didn't exist. There were reports that were generated from the Village to the Department of Insurance and to the actuary who does the projections as to how much needs to be added to the funds each year. Those people rely on our reports. One error came to light recently. Our Finance Director, Brian J. Hanigan discovered a $1 million dollar bearer bond certificate in a file cabinet, with coupons still attached. Someone thought it a good idea to purchase a negotiable instrument from a New Jersey broker for a Village retirement account. The bond does not indicate that it is for Police or Fire Pension Funds. Anyone could have cashed this bearer bond. The bond was called in 2004. At that point in time all the coupons attached to the bearer bond were considered worthless. That $1million dollar bond sat in a file cabinet for 3 1/2 years and collected no interest. In a conservative estimate, this will cost the pension funds $180,000.00. More troubling is this particular bond is still listed on a Department of Insurance report dated 12-31-06 as an "active" bond, paying 8.25%, valued at $1,038,000.00 and having a cost basis of $380,000.00. All of this is erroneous. Trustee Phelan mentioned that more things were looked into by himself, James McGovern, Village Treasurer and Brian Hanigan, Finance Director. They noticed that the actuary changed his assumptions and his presentation a few years back, with no explanation. One year the actuary would list specific investment returns, and the next he would not. When pressed as to why changes were made, the actuary said it was due to political pressure. At that point, we were alarmed. As of today, we tendered the $1million dollar bond to the bank that is handling our affairs now. We are waiting to hear from the bank to see if the bond is still good. We should know something by December 4, 2007. Calls have been put into the former Finance Director at least five times in the last two weeks for a simple explanation. No return calls have come back. There is so much from a management standpoint that is so alarming. The Pension Board Trustees are the ones that have to make decisions. Three months ago half of them didn't have insurance. President Heilmann thanked Trustee Phelan, Finance Director Brian Hanigan, Village Treasurer James McGovern and Village Manager Larry Deetjen for their efforts in investigating this matter. Trustee Phelan added that in July of 2007, the Pension Board made a decision to move the $40 million in equities to Money Market accounts until they could get a better handle on the overall funds management, and because the advisor managing $30 million (of the $40 million) left his firm for another firm. That moved likely preserved about $4 million in asset value given the equity market down-turn since then. President Heilmann stated that Trustee Phelan is being shy about this whole matter. Trustee Phelan is the one who initiated an investigation.

V.P. & B.O.T. REGULAR MEETING MINUTES #2007-26 (11/27/07)

Myrna Jurcev of 5313 West 105th Street spoke out to commend Trustee Phelan on his investigation. She would like our Village Attorney David Freeman to hold accountable the independent accounting firm that audited the books and was replaced in 2004. Ms. Jurcev mentioned that she had made a point of order at a board meeting in 2004 with a past Village Manager after auditing the independent accounting firm previous year's complete audited financials and noticed several million dollars of interest was not reported in the pension funds. VII. CONSENT AGENDA: All items were voted with one motion. A. PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION REFERRAL: 1.

ORD. #07-26:

AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE PROVISIONS OF THE VILLAGE CODE BY DELETING CHAPTER 5 OF TITLE 6 AND ADOPTING A NEW TITLE 6A RELATING TO PROPERTY MAINTENANCE REGULATIONS

Trustee Olejniczak mentioned that this ordinance was first on the Agenda in October and he asked that it be tabled at that time. One of the concerns he had was the way this ordinance was brought to his attention. Reports and issues related to rental properties came to him by residents in his district, police reports and property maintenance reports. Several points were brought up by realtors and landlords at a meeting on November 26th with Village Manager Larry Deetjen and Trustees Olejniczak and Quinlan. One main concern was that fees were too high. Staff went back and looked at property inspection fees and projected lowering them to $100. As an incentive for an excellent evaluation there would be no inspections for 4 years. Violation penalties were addressed. Village Officials will determine if fossil fuel equipment inspections are required by a qualified service person. Mandatory viewing of video by landlord or agent has been removed. The requirement to have a renter disclose a date of birth has been removed. The disclosure of renter family relationship has been removed. The requirement for age of legal owner has been removed. There is no requirement if a person rents a house or apartment that it has to be his/her legal residence. Based on all of the concerns, the focus of this ordinance is on the residents of Oak Lawn. The real estate market is down. People are turning properties they normally would try to sell into rental homes. If the property is not maintained it becomes a bigger liability to the Village of Oak Lawn. Trustee Olejniczak made a motion to pass the ordinance with the recommended changes. Seconded by Trustee Phelan. Trustee Hurckes agrees with Trustee Olejniczak on many of the issues regarding this ordinance. Unfortunately, he believes this is a big issue. He believes that we may have to have an additional day for adjudication related to this ordinance, as well as additional inspectors. Constructive changes and constructive suggestions are always accepted. Constructive criticism has a tendency of closing our ears and moving forward. We need to work together. Some of the details may be financial. Trustee Hurckes made a motion to postpone this until the BOT meeting on January 8, 2008 because he will not be in attendance at the December 11, 2007 BOT meeting. President Heilmann mentioned that the motion was already seconded to pass the ordinance with the recommended changes. Village Attorney David Freeman stated that you must call the order from the previous motion of passing the ordinance with recommended changes before the motion to postpone can override and to be postponed until January 8, 2008. Trustee Rosenbaum seconded to postpone this ordinance until the January 8, 2008 BOT meeting. Trustee Rosenbaum mentioned a number of changes in the ordinance with some additional changes to follow. Trustee Phelan stated that the suggestions from residents were very good. He mentioned it would be better to email those to Village Officials. Understanding that this ordinance is important he has heard from 5 residents within his district who continually complain about neighbors and property issues that they have no control over. Trustee Rosenbaum stated that when a meeting is held with residents only two trustees can attend. That's not to say we're not interested. Unless it's a Public Meeting only two trustees can attend to not violate the Open Meetings Act. Trustee Quinlan was at the landlord/realtor meeting. The trustees, along with the Village Manager and the Village President are trying to do the best for our residents. We object to those not maintaining their property the way they should. Trustee Streit spoke about the debating and approving of property maintenance ordinances for as long as he has been on the Board of Trustees. This ordinance is very detailed. It defines the standards for our community. We have had several meetings with staff to define the standards of this ordinance. Jeanne Galzin, the Village Health Inspector and the Police Department had a lot of input. Our Village Manager Larry Deetjen has extensive experience with property maintenance ordinances with other communities. Our Village Attorney, David Freeman has extensive experience with the issue of property maintenance ordinances, including Bolingbrook and Addison who have property maintenance ordinances on the books for the last decade. Trustee Streit mentioned the regulations in the proposed ordinance. It's important to see the benefits as residents and investors. The ordinance defines standards at a level that will improve our property values.

V.P. & B.O.T. REGULAR MEETING MINUTES #2007-26 (11/27/07)

Trustee Streit stated that the input from landlords and realtors was important. He thanked them for their commitment to our community. We will continue to listen to recommendations from those concerned people.

Trustee Streit feels that it is important to move along on this issue. He commended the staff and especially Trustee Olejniczak on his diligence in seeing this ordinance through its implementation. Village Attorney David Freeman commented that he didn't know how the vote would go on this motion to table, but assuming that the motion is approved he wanted the concerned citizens to contact the staff , trustees or Mayor with their comments (in writing) as soon as possible. He had received at least 10 e-mails from concerned citizens about this ordinance. He does not want to be in a position in a month to be making more changes in the ordinance. Trustee Hurckes spoke about the Fair Housing Committee and its' prohibiting any member being a landlord. He would like to amend that and possibly have a landlord on that committee to get a feel for what's going on within our community. President Heilmann does not believe a landlord can sit on such a committee. Village Attorney David Freeman states that the Fair Housing Committee is an Oak Lawn based committee, not a statutory committee. Therefore, his guess would be that a landlord can sit on that committee. He will look into it. Trustee Hurckes added that it may impact the committee to have a landlord on the committee. Trustee Olejniczak believes that all issues have been addressed in the proposed ordinance. He is concerned on the implementation of an ordinance that needs to be passed. He is available to listen to the concerns of citizens be it by phone, e-mail or meeting. President Heilmann mentioned the concerns of people who call about problem neighbors. His thinking is that the ordinance will probably have to be revisited in about a year to see its effectiveness. The safety of our Oak Lawn residents is important in this matter. Homeowners have asked the Village for years to help with property maintenance issues. Whether this ordinance is postponed or not the Board of Trustees is taking action for the residents of Oak Lawn. Trustee Phelan is inclined to want this ordinance on the next meeting agenda. He asked Trustee Hurckes if he would withdraw his motion to postpone this to January 8, 2008. Trustee Hurckes stated that he would not have a problem with tabling this to the next meeting. Trustee Hurckes motioned to table to the December 11th meeting, seconded by Trustee Rosenbaum. ROLL CALL: TRUSTEE STREIT-YES TRUSTEE HURCKES-YES TRUSTEE QUINLAN-YES TRUSTEE OLEJNICZAK-NO TRUSTEE PHELAN-YES TRUSTEE ROSENBAUM-YES

MOTION PASSED 5-1. President Heilmann asked the concerned citizens to get their comments to a point person right away so that the staff has time to address these issues before the next meeting. George Vlasis requested a copy of the most updated ordinance. President Heilmann suggested a collaboration of all concerned citizens in writing the changes they feel are necessary in the ordinance. Trustee Olejniczak asked Tom Joseph to provide the Village with documentation of the changes the concerned citizens had with the proposed ordinance. No recommendations were received in writing. Tom Joseph brought forth a complaint from Chicagoland Apartment Association raising concerns about the Village of Oak Lawn's proposed ordinance. President Heilmann stated that the ordinance has been postponed and stated that he will proceed with the meeting. He asked Mr. Joseph to have all comments to the Village Manager by Monday, December 4th. The Board of Trustees will then review the information so that it can be forwarded to our Village Attorney. Ms. Myrna Jurcev mentioned that there was no reference in the proposed ordinance about "grandfathering" in those apartment owners that have apartment rentals and having to pay for everyone that is doing a bad job. She also thought there should be a point of sale. She also stated that a lot of people are not aware of the proposed ordinance. President Heilmann stated that the Board of Trustees does not notify everyone in the Village when there is a meeting We would have to mail to over 20,000 single-family residential homes every two weeks. Mr. George Vlasis wanted to know if this should go through the Board of Realtors or are we free to contact the Village one on one. President Heilmann does not want a debate on this issue.
