COMMITTEE ON REAL ESTATE

 

Mr. John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

 

Title

Authority to issue a one (1) year permit to the Blue Island Fire Department to install and maintain a temporary fire training facility on an approximate 75’ x 100’ portion of Cal-Sag Channel Parcel 15.06 in Blue Island, Illinois.  Consideration shall be a nominal fee of $10.00

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

The Blue Island Fire Department (“Fire Department”) has requested a one (1) year permit to install and maintain a temporary fire training facility consisting of three steel fireproof cargo containers on an approximate 75’ x 100’ portion of Cal-Sag Channel Parcel 15.06 in Blue Island, Illinois.  The training includes conducting “live burn” drills inside the containers, which the Fire Department assures will be conducted in compliance with national standards. Equipment will be stored in the containers and used during the training exercises.

 

Parcel 15.06 is leased to the City of Blue Island (“City”) under a public recreational lease that commenced June 1, 2013, and expires May 31, 2052.  Any permit issued will be subject to the City’s written consent.

 

The District’s technical departments have reviewed this request and have no objections thereto.  A nominal fee of $10.00 is recommended as is customary for governmental entities using District land for a public purpose.

 

It is requested that the Acting Executive Director recommend to the Board of Commissioners that it authorize the issuance of a one (1) year permit to the Blue Island Fire Department to install and maintain a temporary fire training facility on an approximate 75’ x 100’ portion of Cal-Sag Channel Parcel 15.06 in Blue Island, Illinois.  Consideration shall be a nominal fee of $10.00.

 

It is also requested that the Acting Executive Director recommend to the Board of Commissioners that the Chairman of the Committee on Finance and the Clerk be authorized and directed to execute said permit agreement after it is approved by the General Counsel as to form and legality.

 

Requested, Susan T. Morakalis, General Counsel, STM:CMM:MM:vp

Recommended, John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

Respectfully Submitted, David J. Walsh, Chairman Committee on Real Estate Development

Disposition of this agenda item will be documented in the official Regular Board Meeting Minutes of the Board of Commissioners for September 6, 2018
