KANEVILLE—The Kaneville Village Board on Sept. 20 discussed the proposed intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with the Kaneland School District.
“We got a call from Assistant Superintendent Julie-Ann Fuchs,” trustee Rick Peck said. “She asked us to review the IGA now that Maple Park had passed it.”
The IGA, which will be in effect for 10 years, institutes rate tables for impact fees from development on newly annexed land within the village.
“We don’t have any big development coming into the village right now,” trustee Paul Ross said. “But anything can happen in 10 years. It’s for the schools; we should do it.”
The board unanimously agreed to pass the IGA.
“Passing the IGA is the right thing to do,” trustee Paul Flamand said. “If we have any development, that’s money the schools get.”
With Kaneville passing the IGA, Sugar Grove is the only municipality to vote against the agreement.
“It puts us on a level playing field with the other municipalities in the School District,” Peck said.
