A small number of Kronenwetter residents will not have to bare the brunt of the costs to improve the village's water draining system.
The decision comes after a vote by the village board last night.
Originally about 250 residents could have been assessed nearly $5,000.
Many of those say they have never had any issues with flooding in their homes and did not understand why they would be responsible for the repairs.
Nearly 40 people spoke out against the proposal at Thursday's meeting.
After more than four hours the village board made their decision.
The village will move forward with the project itself, which is designed to reduce flooding in residential areas.
The project will be paid for by all of the village's taxpayers.
