SUGAR GROVE—The Sugar Grove Village Board voted 5-0 to authorize an Intergovernmental Agreement with Rob Roy Drainage District No. 2 to aid storm water drainage improvements for the Mallard Point and Rolling Oaks subdivisions.
According to a document from Village Administrator Brent Eichelberger, the agreement will detail the understandings between both parties regarding the design and installation of the improvements, the disconnection of the two subdivisions from the Rob Roy Drainage District, and the voluntary contribution of funds from the village to the Drainage District.
“(The agreement) does include a small contribution from the village to the Drainage District in recognition of some of the work they did to assist us on our project,” Eichelberger said.
The document states that the cost to develop and implement the agreement, including attorney consultation and engineer services in the preparation and disconnection process, and the contribution to the Drainage District, is estimated at $35,000. That cost will be allocated as part of the overall project cost, which is estimated approximately between $1.4 and $1.8 million.
