"Working for you"
 

Along with the management company, Hanover Square also has a board of directors that supervises operations. Owners choose to serve on the Board for various reasons, because they want to improve the neighborhood, because they feel a need to participate, because they want to increase property values, because they feel no one else will do it or just for the fun of it. Whatever the reason the Association appreciates their efforts.

The affairs of the Association are governed by a Board of Directors. The Board has the powers and duties necessary for the administration for these affairs. The Board of Directors consists of three (3) members each is elected for a term of three (3) years with one (1) director position up for election in May of each year.

To be eligible for a position on the Board, you must own property in the Association and your Association fees must be paid to date in full. Board members receive no compensation (are not paid) for their service on the Board.

The principal officers of the Association are a President, a Secretary, and a Treasurer, all of whom shall be elected by and from the Board of Directors. The Directors may elect one or more Vice-Presidents, an Assistant Treasurer, and an Assistant Secretary, and such other officers as in their judgment may be necessary. The offices of Treasurer and Secretary shall not by filled by the same person.

The President is the chief executive officer of the Association. The President presides at all meetings of the Association and of the Board of Directors. The President has all of the general powers and duties that are usually vested in the office of a president of an Association.

The Vice-President shall take the place for the President and perform his duties whenever the President is absent or unable to act. If neither the President nor the Vice-President is able to act, the Board of Directors shall appoint some other member of the Board to so do on an interim basis. The Vice-President shall also perform such other duties as shall from time to time be imposed upon him by the Board of Directors.

The Secretary shall keep or cause to be kept the minutes of all meetings of the Board of Directors and the minutes of all meetings of the Association. The Secretary shall have charge of such books and papers as the Board of Directors may direct and shall, in general, perform all of the duties incident to the office of Secretary.

The Treasurer shall have responsibility for Association funds and securities and shall be responsible for keeping or causing to be kept full and accurate accounts of all receipts and disbursements in books belonging to the Association. He shall be responsible for the deposit of all moneys and other valuable effects in the name, and to the credit of the Association in such depositaries as may from time to time be designated by the Board of Directors.

 

CURRENT BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Board President - Thomas Schaefer President / Webmaster
     Thomas Schaefer    Email hanoversquarepres @ yahoo . com

Tom has been a resident of Hanover Square since 1989. He has been an active member of the community since that time and has volunteered on the board of Directors since 1996. He has also been an active part of the neighborhood watch as well as done several hours of volunteer work on the property.

in 2001 Tom took over as President after the former President moved. This was the worst possible time to take over as president. In 99 the 7603 building burnt down causing the associations insurance premiums to raise a significant amount, then in 2001 the fire at 7601 had taken that even higher! Raising our insurance from about $38,000 a year to over $100,000. YES ALMOST TRIPLE the cost. Not to mention the ageing buildings and grounds needing work.
Well since then he and the board have managed to get the insurance down in the the $60,000 range with hopes of it getting lower soon if no claims are made. They have planned and executed ALL the roofs on ALL 24 building being replaced, gotten several lights replaced, new one installed, worked with village to get 3 new street lights installed on Kingsbury and Bristol, Fixed pot holes and are in works with village to get all roads in complex redone completely. Also working on getting yet MORE lighting done as well. New Street signs have been installed, New signage by entrances, several sidewalks mud jacked, New drain tile installed and more approved for this year. Not to mention having several dead or dieing tress removed and FREE chips for residents with more coming.

All in all the last 6 years started out bad, got worse, but is on a very strong upward swing now with many exciting things to come.

Tom often goes far above and beyond the call of duty in the complex. HE has filled pot holes, fixed signs, shoveled snow, painted curbs, trimmed trees, built and maintained web site, clean out dumpster corals, parole complex all hours day and night, as well as replaced EVERY GARAGE LIGHT BULB ( with help from former resident Dave B) at no cost to the homeowners. He has also saved money by printing, stapling and delivering the newsletters, that Larry had put together, in the past himself.
He is a very hands on person. He has even spent his own money to repair the swings as well as has gone to court on several occasions in behalf of the association on things from Trespassing to issues to dealing with Horizon Management.

Some of the things Tom enjoys are improving the neighborhood, helping others, building web pages, and acting. Tom has performed on stage in Madison WI, Milwaukee WI, Chicago IL, Normal IL, Los Angels CA and In Hanover Park! He has also been in the films "Major League" and "Hoffa" and the soon to be released  "5-25-77"

If you see a Stormtrooper from Star Wars walking around the neighborhood that's Tom as well. He is a proud member of The 501st Legion, a Star Wars Imperial Costuming group. They make appearances at Sci-Fi conventions, Movie openings, and sometimes do Escort Duty for the actors in the Star Wars films. As a part of the 501st he has also participated in a few charity events such as visiting children's hospitals and other fund raising events.

Tom and 7 other members of the Midwest Garrison of the 501st Stormtrooper legion performed with the band "No Doubt" and were guests on stage with them at their April 6th show at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago.

He and the other troopers were at the Chicago Premiere to Benefit Children's Charities of the new Star Wars film "Attack of the Clones" on May 12th at the McClurg Theater and also at the dinner following the film at the Adler Planetarium. Tickets for this event are $500.00 to $100,000.00 and all proceeds went to children's Memorial Hospital.

 

Locally Tom has had a long connection with the village of Hanover Park. 
Former Village President Lou Barone was the Deacon at both his children's baptisms.
Tom had a very good working relationship with late Hanover Park President Irv Bock.
And has a great relationship with current Mayor Rod Craig as well as many other village officials.
