Scott Weisbruch – Highway Commissioner
The Township Highway Commissioner is responsible for the construction and maintenance of all roads and bridges in the road district. The Highway Commissioner submits an annual levy for the following year. Levies are submitted to the Township Board of Trustees for certification prior to the last Tuesday in December. The Highway Commissioner’s levy may be subject to review by the Trustees, but the Board cannot alter the levy. Thirty days before adoption of the budget and appropriation ordinance for roads and bridges, the Highway Commissioner submits to the Township Clerk and Township Board of Trustees a tentative budget. The proposed budget is then available for public inspection and review for 30 days before final action. Once the budget and appropriation ordinance is adopted, the Highway Commissioner has statutory power to expend the funds according to the line items established in the appropriation ordinance. In many respects, the Township Highway Department is a separate government. Neither the Township Board of Trustees nor the Supervisor has any jurisdiction over the Highway Commissioner or the road district employees.
NEW BRUSH PICKUP POLICY EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY FOR UNINCORPORATED WAUCONDA TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS ONLY
To increase the efficiency of our department, brush pickup will only be done on the second Monday of each month May – October. Brush should be placed in the right of way no later than 7am on the day of pickup as our equipment will only make one pass through all neighborhoods. Brush should be placed with cut ends facing the street. No metal, garbage, weeds, leaves or yard waste will be picked up. Storm damage will be dealt with on a case by case basis, by appointment only.
