Maywood considers playground equipment, police car, computer purchases
Playground products, police cars and policy matters topped the agenda at Maywood’s recent Legal, License and Ordinance Committee meeting.
Mayor Edwenna Perkins began the meeting by presenting a report with the theme “A shift is coming, things are changing in our favor, when the people get a mind to work."
Village Manager Willie Norfleet Jr. reported on an array of topics ranging from financial service agreements to public park equipment, specifically a quote received from NuToys Leisure Products Inc. for $14,515.15 to remove old playground structures in the town's parks and install new equipment.
Norfleet also reviewed a status report by the Cook County Sheriff's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) concerning renewal of the OIG program.
The board also discussed tobacco-licensing and water-billing issues.
Additionally, the committee discussed purchasing a used vehicle outright for the Maywood Police Department for $10,645 and waiving the bid process, as well as purchasing two computers for the Fire Department for $7,230, also without a bid process.
Norfleet reminded participants about the Cook County Community Development Block Grant 2016 application. The federal Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) strives to carry out Title 1 objectives of the 1974 Housing and Community Development Act, primarily for low- and moderate-income residents.
