Title

Authority to enter into intergovernmental agreements with the City of Northlake, Village of Stone Park, Village of Melrose Park, Village of Bellwood, Village of Westchester, and Village of Broadview for Contract 11-187-3F, Addison Creek Channel Improvements

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

Authorization is requested to enter into Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs) with the City of Northlake, Village of Stone Park, Village of Melrose Park, Village of Bellwood, Village of Westchester, and Village of Broadview Village (Municipalities) establishing certain responsibilities associated with the design, construction, and maintenance of the Addison Creek Channel Improvements.

 

On May 21, 2015, the Board of Commissioners authorized the District to negotiate IGAs with the Municipalities for the Addison Creek Reservoir and Channel Improvements.  The proposed channel improvements are broken into nine reaches along approximately 15,300 feet of Addison Creek beginning at Hirsch Street in the City of Northlake and continuing to Cermak Road in the Village of Broadview.  The Addison Creek Channel Improvements along with the proposed Addison Creek Reservoir will provide flood reduction benefits to approximately 2,200 properties. The District and Municipalities have agreed in principle to the terms of the IGAs, which include design and construction of the channel improvements by the District, and future maintenance of the channel improvements shared by Municipalities.

 

Based on the foregoing, it is requested that the Board of Commissioners grant authority for the District to enter into IGAs with the City of Northlake, Village of Stone Park, Village of Melrose Park, Village of Bellwood, Village of Westchester, and Village of Broadview for the Addison Creek Channel Improvements project.  It is further requested that the Chairman of the Committee on Finance, Acting Executive Director, and Clerk be authorized to execute said agreements on behalf of the District, as well as any documents necessary to effectuate the transaction and conveyance of the agreements, upon approval by the Director of Engineering as to technical matters and by the General Counsel as to form and legality.

 

Requested, Catherine A. O’Connor, Director of Engineering, WSS:JK

Recommended, John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

Respectfully Submitted, Debra Shore, Chairman Committee on Stormwater Management
