Task Force


An Undergrounding Utility Task Force (UUTF) appointed by the Village Council is the body that provides direction, input and feedback for all elements of the Undergrounding Program. The UUTF will advise the Village Council based on input received from members of the public, Village staff, financial advisors, assessment methodology consultants, Kimley-Horn, and others it wishes to involve in the process. The UUTF was established by Village Council via Ordinance 2017-5 on June 13, 2017. According to the Ordinance, "the jurisdiction of the Committee shall be solely advisory and shall include identifying issues relating to underground utilities and recommend solutions; investigating and reviewing possibilities of underground utilities throughout the Village; and studying and recommending solutions to other issues referred to the Committee from time-to-time by the Village Council or Village Manager".

The Committee held its first meeting on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 560 Crandon Boulevard. Meetings are open to the public and advertised. Future meeting dates, times and locations will be announced and posted on the website.
