GOV, Brookfield budget to be announced [BF]

Suburban Life (Debrah Bonn):
Brookfield officials are set to approve major capital improvement plans in the proposed 2006-07 budget at the Monday, April 24, Village Board meeting.

"I'm very excited that we're presenting a balanced budget," Village Manager Riccardo Ginex said. "We're looking to accomplish a lot."

Proviso Probe quoted a Pioneer Press (Angela Caputo) article about a Brookings Institute study on wealth in the suburbs.
"We're moving to a society where, like in the city neighborhoods, we're divided by rich and poor," he said. "Now the suburbs are becoming either entirely rich or entirely poor."

Brookfield is probably going to be one of the affluent suburbs. What about the other Proviso municipalities? Will they become affluent or poor?
