TRANSMITTAL LETTER FOR BOARD MEETING OF September 6, 2018

 

COMMITTEE ON ENGINEERING

 

Mr. John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

 

Title

Authority to Accept and Execute First Amendment to Pipeline Easement Agreement granted by the Commuter Rail Division of the Regional Transportation Authority, a division of an Illinois municipal corporation, (Metra) for the 39th Street Conduit Rehabilitation Phase I Bypass Tunnel, SSA (ROW File No. 10, Contract 01-103-2S)

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

In connection with the captioned project, a temporary easement from Metra was acquired for the construction of a temporary sewer bypass pipeline to accommodate the 39th Street Conduit rehabilitation. On September 4, 2008 the Board of Commissioners granted approval to enter into a temporary pipeline easement agreement with Metra. The fee for said easement was $50,000.00 for the first 10 years and an annual fee of $7,500.00 beginning on the 11th year and increasing 3 percent a year up to a maximum increase of 20 percent. Now, due to a change in its policy, Metra has offered this First Amendment to Pipeline Easement Agreement which does not require any further payments for continued use of said easement. The agreement will stay in place and be effective as long as the temporary pipeline is maintained and used by the District.  All other terms of the easement will remain as approved by the Board of Commissioners on September 4, 2008.

 

It is respectfully requested that the Board of Commissioners accept and approve this easement amendment in connection with the captioned project and that the Chairman of the Committee on Finance and Clerk be authorized and directed to execute said easement amendment on behalf of the District after it is approved by the Director of Engineering as to technical matters and by 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, Frank Avila, Chairman Committee on Engineering

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