TRANSMITTAL LETTER FOR BOARD MEETING OF SEPTEMBER 1, 2022

 

COMMITTEE ON STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

 

Mr. Brian Perkovich, Executive Director

 

Title

Authority to amend the intergovernmental agreement with City of Northlake for the acquisition of flood-prone properties (21-IGA-25)

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

Authority to amend the intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with the City of Northlake (City) for the acquisition of flood prone properties (21-IGA-25). Under this project, the City of Northlake originally proposed to acquire two flood-prone properties that are depicted in the attached Exhibit 1.

 

On October 21, 2021, the Board of Commissioner (Board) granted authority to enter into an IGA with and make payment to City of Northlake for the acquisition of flood-prone properties, in an amount not to exceed $600,000.00. The IGA between the District and the City was fully executed on November 11, 2021.

 

Since execution of the IGA, the City has reached out to the two property owners several times, and both property owners have indicated they are not interested in being acquired. The City is requesting to amend the IGA language and exhibits that reference the two flood-prone properties in Exhibit 1 and replace it with language and exhibits to acquire different flood-prone property shown in Exhibit 2. The District has determined that the flood-prone property shown in Exhibit 2 meets our flood-prone property acquisition criteria, and said property is currently for sale.

 

Based on the foregoing, it is recommended that the District be authorized to amend the IGA with the City to acquire the different property at a cost not to exceed $300,000.00. It is requested that the Board of Commissioners authorize and direct the Chairman of Committee on Finance and Clerk to execute the amendment to the IGA after it is approved 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, KMF:JK

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
