Esperance Plans to Unplug Drainage

On April 8, 2024, the Village of Esperance met for its monthly meeting with Mayor Royce Gage and Board of Trustees, in which they:

  • Heard that the Esperance Volunteer Fire Department (EVFD) had to reschedule its last Friday Fish Fry to April 12, 2024 at 5 pm.

  • Heard that the Easter Egg Hunt at the Village Park and Commons on March 30, 2024 was a great success with 25 children participating.

  • Continue to seek volunteers for its Beautification, Planning and Zoning Boards.

  • Appointed Kyle Smart and Matt Deffer as certified fire extinguisher inspectors as of April 8, 2024.

  • Heard the consolidated local street and highway improvement program (CHIPS) monies will be used to unplug the drainage system on Church Street, in front of the Village office up to the Presbyterian Church. Project to begin next month. 

  • Unanimously approved and adopted its 2024-2025 Budget, in which there will be no increase in the tax levy. This Board conservatively anticipates an increase in sales tax revenues of $2,300 and project an increase in mortgage tax rate revenue (set by the financial institutions) of $700 to offset a decrease in property expenses by $3,000.

  • Announced the annual George Landis Arboretum Plant Sale and Village-wide Garage Sales will be on Saturday, May 18, 2024.
