TRANSMITTAL LETTER FOR BOARD MEETING OF SEPTEMBER 1, 2022

 

COMMITTEE ON STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

 

Mr. Brian A. Perkovich, Executive Director

 

Title

Authority to negotiate and enter into an Intergovernmental Agreement with the Northfield Township Road District for Contract 14-065-5F, Flood Control Project on Central Road from the Des Plaines River to Glenwood Lane, NSA

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

Authorization is requested to negotiate and enter into an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the Northfield Township Road District for the Flood Control Project on Central Road from the Des Plaines River to Glenwood Lane, NSA (Project).

 

On January 20, 2022, the Board of Commissioners authorized the District to negotiate a tri-party intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Northfield and Maine Townships (Townships) to outline certain responsibilities for the Project. The proposed Project consists of new storm sewers, a new outlet to the Des Plaines River, a detention facility, and other drainage improvements along Central Road, Dearlove Road, Glenwood Lane, Glendale Road, Glenshire Road and Hillside Road. The Project will reduce flooding impacts to approximately 114 single and multi-family structures as well as several roadways in the project area. Recently, we have determined that the appropriate party to enter the IGA with the District is the Northfield Township Road District (Road District) instead of the Townships. The terms of the IGA between the District and the Road District are anticipated to include design and construction of the Project by the District, and future maintenance and ownership of the Project improvements constructed in the Townships by the Road District. The District will enter a separate IGA with the Illinois Department of Transportation who will own and maintain the Project improvements constructed in their right-of-way.

 

Based on the foregoing, it is requested that the Board of Commissioners grant authority for the District to negotiate and enter into an IGA with the Northfield Township Road District for the Project.  It is further requested that the Chairman of the Committee on Finance, Executive Director and Clerk be authorized to execute said agreement on behalf of the District, as well as any documents necessary to effectuate the transaction and conveyance, 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, KMF:JK

Recommended, Brian A. Perkovich, Executive Director
