  1. It would be great if the Village could see the importance of using the expensive robo-call system to inform the residents of a Public Hearing regarding the Tax Levy as opposed to last minute special event marketing.

    1. JoAnn Murphy: That would be an excellent idea. I don’t see a problem for the village of Maywood to remind the residents of the public hearing and board meeting.

  2. All I can say is that I hope that the residents in Maywood attended this public hearing and do a “public comment” to the trustees.
