September 30, 2015 Stormwater Subcommittee Meeting

The stormwater subcommittee met with the City on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 in Council Chambers with public present to continue discussions concerning the City’s request to use park property for stormwater detention.


Approximately 16 residents attended the meeting and 6 spoke during public comment.   Talks continue over many of the same issues with the City including having all five sites in the document, the extension of the maintenance facility lease, the IDNR process, funding of possible conversion properties and tree replacements.  Furthermore, the Parks District subcommittee received the latest draft of the IGA from the City the same morning as the meeting, thus there was no time to review it prior to the meeting.  Little progress was made, however,, the Park District subcommittee continues to work on ideas for resolving the stalemate.  More information will be brought to the Board as it is assembled.

The next subcommittee meeting will be held Thursday, October 29 at 7:00 p.m.. at City Hall.
