The amount of the performance guarantee and surety shall be based on the estimated value of the improvements at the time of approval of the subdivision, insuring the village adequate coverage to secure the satisfactory construction, installation, and dedication of the uncompleted portions of the required improvements. The Village Attorney shall approve such performance guarantee only after a recommendation of approval of the amount of the guarantee is received from the Village Engineer;

(e) Any guarantee shall only be released upon the certification by the developer’s engineer (with the approval of the Village Engineer) that the public type improvements and facilities have been constructed in compliance with the drawings and specifications for such public type facilities and improvements. If construction of the improvements was commenced prior to approval of the subdivision, the developer shall pay a penalty fee as determined by resolution from tune to time by the Board of Trustees.
(7) After inspection and acceptance of the facilities and improvements, but before release of the construction performance bond for all of the facilities and improvements, a deposit shall be made to the village by a maintenance bond equal to 50% of the construction cost of the public facilities and improvements. This deposit shall be a guarantee of satisfactory performance of the facilities constructed for and within the planned unit development and satisfactory maintenance operation of such publicly and privately owned facilities necessary to the health, safety, and convenience of the tenants or successors to the applicant.
(a) Such bond for the publicly owned facilities shall be held by the village for a period of 12 months after acceptance by the village of such publicly owned facilities.
(b) The bond is to remain in effect as long as the public facilities remain in private ownership. Nothing in the above maintenance guarantee clause should be construed to prevent the filing of two maintenance guarantees, one for publicly owned public facilities and one for privately owned public facilities. After such 12 months, the bond covering the maintenance of publicly owned public facilities shall be returned if no defects have developed, or if any defects have developed, then the balance of such bonding shall be refunded after reimbursement for amounts expended in correcting defective facilities. The guarantee maintenance deposit under this division (D)(7) shall be made immediately upon inspection and approval by the Village Engineer of the construction of all facilities, but prior to release of the construction guarantee.
