The Village of Santa Clara Regular Meeting was held on Thursday evening at 6:00 pm in the Village Hall. Mayor Richard Bauch and all trustees except Mayor Pro Tem Albert Esparza were in attendance.
Bauch began his Mayor’s report by updating the community on the addressing program. The project to name, rename, and renumber the streets is moving along and will be beneficial for emergency vehicle dispatching. Bauch also said the Village is preparing for the 2020 census. Work now to make sure the Village is ready will make the process go smoothly. It is important the census is correct as it is a tool in receiving funding. Bauch also reported the Neighborhood Watch is going well.
