Joint resolution authorizing an agreement with the Village of Lake Villa (Village) relating to the intersection improvements at Fairfield Road and Monaville Road.

Staff Summary
* The Village has an existing sanitary sewer forcemain that must be relocated to accommodate the intersection improvement.
* A majority of the forcemain is located within a superior easement which causes Lake County to be responsible for the cost of its relocation, estimated to be $70,000.
* The Village has requested the County also pay for relocation of the portion that is not within the superior easement in exchange for vacation of the superior easement, estimated to be $40,000, and the Village would be responsible for all costs should the forcemain need to be modified or relocated in the future.
* The Village would also like to provide a future non-motorized connection from Amber Lane west to the Grant Woods Forest Preserve trail for which the County would participate in accordance with the non-motorized policy.
* This project is included in the Transportation Improvement Program with construction planned to begin in 2021, and designated as Section 15-00120-06-CH.
