EL population estimate down again

by Emmitt B. Feldner of The Review staff

ELKHART LAKE – Where is everybody going?

That might be the question they’re asking in the village.

Village Administrator/Clerk/ Treasurer Jessica Reilly reported to the Village Board Monday that the latest population estimate from the state Department of Administration showed that the village has shrunk by half a dozen people.

The DOA estimate for 2014 shows a population of 955 people, down from 967 in the 2013 estimate, according to Reilly.

“We dropped another 12 people, but the interesting part is the number of registered voters has gone up,” Reilly said, noting that there are 780 registered voters in the village.

The DOA estimated the village to have 811 people of voting age, Reilley added.

“I feel like if we took a head count there would be more people,” she said of the DOA population estimate for the village.

The board scheduled a public hearing on the proposed 2015 village budget for Monday, Nov. 17, at 6:45 p.m.

The final levy for the proposed 2015 budget would increase 4.9 percent, to $1,229,025.

Village President Alan Rudnick reported that the Administration and Finance Committee had completed its final review of the budget.

The committee voted to add $300 to the budget to purchase lake buoys for the Elkhart Lake Improvement Association.

He also reported that the committee has reviewed and will be updating the flexible spending and health reimbursement account procedures for village employees.

The board adopted an official policy governing employee direct deposits at the request of the village’s bank.
