October 28, 2015 Park Board Meeting

Stormwater Management
Executive Director Rogers stated that after discussions with each Board Commissioner, a proposal letter will be sent to the City addressing the two major outstanding points that both parties have yet to agree on – how to, if possible, include all five sites in the IGA and compensation for use of the park sites. The Board’s subcommittee will further discuss the proposal with the City at the October 29 meeting in City Chambers. Board President Ubriaco stated that the City is aware of the District’s constraints on the property purchased with IL Dept. of Natural Resources (IDNR) funds. The District cannot approach IDNR with a formal proposal to convert park property without an IGA with the City.
