Title

Resolution creating one temporary full-time equivalent in the Stormwater Management Commission and authorizing a line item transfer in the amount of $140,242 in Fund 212 Stormwater Management Commission (SMC) Fund to fund a temporary Capital Improvement Program Manager full-time position.

 

Staff Summary

                     On April 25, 2022, Lake County received a $30 million grant agreement for regional stormwater projects from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO).  The Stormwater Management Commission currently has 14 stormwater remediation projects located across Lake County that will proceed immediately upon receipt of the grant funding.

                     Immediate support is necessary to the Executive Director to manage the initial 14 projects, and all associated design consultants and contractors.

                     The Fiscal Year 2022 budget included the intergovernmental revenue from municipal project partners that was expected to offset project grant administrative costs borne by the SMC. This was initially all budgeted in engineering services and must now be transferred to accommodate personnel-related expenses instead.  Project partner intergovernmental agreements have been drafted and will be executed upon Lake County’s acceptance of the grant agreement. The revenue associated with those agreements is expected to be received when each associated project is initiated.

                     This line item transfer will provide 12 months of funding for the position and will be reimbursed with municipal revenue. As with all grant-funded employees, the employee will be terminated after this funding is exhausted unless another alternate source of funding is determined.  Should municipal revenue not be obtained to fund the position, the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission’s budget will be reduced accordingly.

                     Additional staffing requests will be forthcoming at future meetings in coordination with the Lake County Administrator’s Office.
