First, understand all assets and expenses that the Village faces. Take an active role in reviewing the annual Audits and Budgets and curb unnecessary spending as applicable.

Look at ways to promote Village Growth with Community Events.
Develop a contingency plan on how to best address these type of events. Test the effectiveness with annual "mock" events and determine what worked well as identify areas that need improvement.
1.). Budget oversight - Understand how the Village spends their money and look at ways to improve their financial standing. 2.). Community growth - look at ways to entice people to want to move to the community with Clean up days and Community events for Village residents of all ages. 3.) Update and review existing Village Ordinances. The Village Ordinances have been dormant for many years with no new updates and no involvement from the existing Board for enforcement. Work with Village Residents on how to best abide by these ordinances and make changes as applicable, most importantly encourage that all residents take pride in our community. With the ultimate goal of improving the Village of Valparaiso appeal to potential new residents and current residents alike.
Encourage community involvement within the Village of Valparaiso.

I would look at having community events that would encourage the community to be more active with attending the Monthly Town Board Meetings. The board is in place to be an advocate for all Village residents.

Look at ways to encourage town residents to take pride in their community and look at new ideas to improve Valparaiso in hopes of encouraging new families to move to Valparaiso, as it is the Valley of Paradise.
