Title
Resolution dissolving the Ad Hoc Drainage District Consolidation Committee and establishing the Ad Hoc Consolidation Review Committee of the County Board to provide recommendations on units of local government that might be dissolved or consolidated with another existing governmental entity.

Staff summary
* The 2018 report from the Lake County Commission on Government Reform and Accountability recommended the establishment of a commission to actively explore potential collaboration, consolidation, or service-sharing opportunities, based on data that includes the impact on taxing bodies and potential cost savings.
* The Ad Hoc Drainage District Committee has met a number of times over the past year with a primary focus on drainage district research within Lake County. An additional focus has been on providing data-driven recommendations regarding consolidations where practical.
* At its last meeting, the Committee provided a recommendation to dissolve the Beach Park drainage district and consolidate its functions with the Village of Beach Park and the City of Waukegan. Discussion at the committee also resulted in an identified need of the committee's work to expand to other units of local government in Lake County. The committee provided direction to staff to amend the current committee tasks to allow for this expansion of scope.
* This resolution dissolves the current Ad Hoc Drainage District Consolidation Committee and creates the Ad Hoc Consolidation Review Committee with the same membership and expanded work that will allow for discussion and recommendations related to other units of local government in Lake County.
