The Village staff seeking expert advice in meetings and reviewing and preparing correspondence regarding the specific plans, plats, maps, development plans or project, such as, but not limited to the Village's Attorney, Environmental Consultant, or Architectural Consultant expertise; and

requests from the agent/developer/property owners in gathering additional information; preparing GIS mapping; reviewing materials; preparing meetings, letters, emails and other correspondence; and researching information and for existing or speculative development proposals to assure that the proposed application, specific plans, plats, maps, development plans or project are in compliance with the applicable Village, county, state or federal ordinances, rules and regulations and any approved plans or specifications.
