Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

On April 21, 2022, the Board of Commissioners granted authority to award Contract 14-253-AF, Diversion Channel for Flood Control Project on Midlothian Creek in Robbins, Illinois (“Project”). As part of that Project, the District will be constructing a diversion channel that crosses Cal-Sag Channel Parcel 14.02 in the Village of Robbins.

 

Pursuant to the Intergovernmental Agreement with the Village of Robbins for the Project, the Village is responsible for the long-term operation and maintenance of the Project improvements, including the diversion channel. As a result, the Village requires a 25-year easement to fulfill its operation and maintenance responsibilities.

 

The District’s technical departments have no objections to the easement. A nominal fee of $10.00 is recommended as is customary for governmental entities using District property for a public purpose.

 

It is requested that the Executive Director recommend to the Board of Commissioners that it grant to the Village of Robbins a 25-year non-exclusive easement on Cal-Sag Channel Parcel 14.02 to operate and maintain a diversion channel as part of the Flood Control Project on Midlothian Creek in Robbins, Illinois (Contract 14-253-AF). Consideration shall be a nominal fee of $10.00.

 

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

 

Requested, Susan T. Morakalis, General Counsel, STM:MTC:BJD:vp

Recommended, Brian A. Perkovich, Executive Director

Disposition of this agenda item will be documented in the official Regular Board Meeting Minutes of the Board of Commissioners for September 1, 2022
