HomeGoods store coming to Deer Trace shopping center

KOHLER – Two new mall tenants – one in Deer Trace, one in Woodlake – won approval from the Village Board at their Aug. 20 meeting.

The board approved a special use permit for a HomeGoods store in half of the Deer Trace building on State 28 being vacated by Boston Store. That space will be divided and another tenant is still being sought for the remaining space.

HomeGoods owned by TJX Companies and is a sister company to T.J. Maxx, Sierra Trading Post, and Marshalls, specializing in discount home furnishings.

The board approved a building permit for a Prevea eye clinic within the Woodlake Market area.

Not much progress was reported on another major project in the village, the proposed Aurora hospital off Taylor Drive east of Interstate 43.

The village is still waiting on a final developer's agreement for the project, but trustees stated that progress is imminent.

The transition between the first and second phase of the County PP reconstruction project is expected somewhere around Labor Day, the board learned.

Trustees explained that the reason for the delay is related to the concrete and curbing subcontractor, who has reportedly shown up with half a crew, toggling between different job sites without finishing projects.

A new labor agreement with the Police Department won board approval.

The village will purchase monitoring devices for the pool from Synergy Sales LLC.

The board deemed the system necessary due to occasional flooding in the school basement caused by power failures. A monitoring system will alert village officials of the problem sooner, should it occur, and would help prevent any further complications and extra expenses later on.

The purchase was not included in the village's budget, so the board approved borrowing to cover the cost of the capital project.

A new five-year contract with Advanced Disposal for garbage collection in the village was approved.

The cost under the new contract will be about 30 cents per month per household less than the current contract, with the rate fixed for the first two years of the agreement.

A letter will be sent to the Kohler Co. requesting reimbursement for fire department gear that had been damaged. The board discussed the issue in more depth at an earlier meeting.

The board accepted two grants, one a cost-share from the Bay- Lakes Regional Planning Commission for tree planting and the other from the Urban Forestry Grant and Urban Forestry Catastrophic Storm Grant programs.

July expense reports, slightly over budget in some categories but overall still within budget for the year, were approved by the board.
