Title
Joint resolution revising an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between Lake County Planning, Building, and Development (PBD) and the Village of Fox Lake.

Staff Summary
* PBD currently conducts plumbing plan reviews and inspections within the Village of Fox Lake.
* The Village has requested an expansion of the County's IGA services to the Village to also include building inspections and plan review for all trades, electric, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and structural on an as-needed basis in order to accommodate temporary gaps in Village staff capacity and other exigencies that may arise.
* The additional work will not have a significant effect on the overall PBD staff capacity and can be absorbed by our department given staff's daily presence in the area and the limited expansion of the contract.
* As PBD already provides services to the Village through an established process, the additional work can be added seamlessly with no additional equipment, training or costs to the County.
* The revised contract has been reviewed and approved by the State's Attorney's Office.
