ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT
Village Administrator Steve Bosco thanked the board for the 4 years he has been with the Village of North Aurora and looking forward to the next 4 years.

Broadcasting of Village Board Meetings – Bosco said that the Village has been in contact with the Fox Valley Cable Consortium. A resolution will be presented at the next Village Board meeting. The Village will broadcast through the FVCC PEG channel. They will post to the Village’s YouTube page or provide the Village access to it so that the Village can post the video. The Village Board meeting of July 3rd will be cancelled due to the North Aurora fireworks show. Mayor Berman asked the Board is there was anything they wanted to request in terms of the FVCC broadcasting for North Aurora. Bosco said there was one thing that was not discussed at the past meeting and that was livestreaming. Mayor Berman said that when thinking about towns such as Yorkville, Plano and Batavia, who have their own stations, they broadcast their high school football games. The Village does not get such opportunities since Aurora is not part of Comcast. Berman said it would be nice to have the high school games broadcasted since our children attend high school in Aurora. Bosco said that North Aurora has a good relationship with SD129 and could inquire about their working with the consortium to rebroadcast the high school sports events on the Village’s cable page.
