d. First and Final Reading of an Ordinance of the Village of Villa Park, DuPage County, Authorizing the Sale of Police Radios to the Harvey Police Department
In 2011, the police department purchased new portable radios to be in compliance with the new StarComNetwork. All agencies using DuComm were required to switch to the updated radio band frequency at that time. The radios that had been used prior to 2011 do not work on the Starcom Network and are of no use to the police department.
The City of Harvey, Illinois is not on the StarComNetwork, and is in need of radios and inquired if the Villa Park Police Department would be willing to sell the radios and associated equipment to their police department. Deputy Chief Jason Banks of the Harvey Police Department has agreed to a price of $3,500 for the equipment. (See attachment for inventory list.) At this time, the police department is asking the Village Board to approve the sale of 63 radios and associated equipment to the City of Harvey, Illinois.

5. First and Final Reading of an Ordinance of the Village of Villa Park, DuPage County, Illinois, Approving a Conditional Use for a Car Wash at 780 North Addison Road

6. First and Final Reading of an Ordinance of the Village of Villa Park, DuPage County, Illinois, Approving an increase in the Number of Class EEE Liquor Licenses from 5 to 6
The Village received a request from a representative of Jimmy's Street Tacos for a Class "EEE" Liquor License. If approved, the number of Class "EEE" liquor licenses within the Village will increase by one, from 5 to 6. Jimmy's Street Tacos is located at 117 W. St. Charles Road.
7. First and Final Reading of an Ordinance of the Village of Villa Park, DuPage County, Illinois, Amending the Fees for Parking in the Village's Commuter Parking Lot
The Village has invested significantly in the Metra Parking lot as of late, and staff would like to continue investment to improve customer service and enhance the user experience. These changes include offering the Passport Parking payment option in the north lot (which is a Smartphone app now available in the South lot only) and installing a new payment machine, with all payments being the same $2.00 per day in total. The new payment machine Would interface with Passport Parking so Police can more effectively patrol the lots, and would allow for much improved financial internal controls. The attached ordinance codifies these changes, as well as an increase in the quarterly permit rate from $82.50 to $100, which is a much smaller percentage increase than the daily pay rates. Public Works would need to renumber the north lot to accommodate these changes, and can increase the number of quarterly permit spaces to meet the anticipated demand. Upon approval, we would embark on an education campaign and would help parking patrons learn their new payment options and would help transition users to the new payment equipment once installed.
8. First and Final Reading of an Ordinance of the Village of Villa Park, DuPage County, Illinois, Approving a Vacation of a Portion of Harrison Street Right-of-Way
Property owners to the north and south have reached agreement on how the right-of-way would be divided.

Oakland Avenue) measures 120 point 27 feet (120.27) in width by onebhundred fifty feet (150") in depth. These lots were originally approved at different times in different subdivisions. This resubdivision will absorb the vacated Harrison Street right-of-way.
9. First and Final Reading of an Ordinance of the Village of Villa Park, DuPage County, Illinois, Approving an Administrative Subdivision for the Doan/Faith Church Subdivision
