The Village and Hanson Material Service Corporation have agreed on the terms of a settlement agreement related to the 2016 litigation brought against the Village. The settlement agreement establishes a framework for the design and construction of the 50th Street Storm Sewer in La Grange and necessary connecting pipe infrastructure to convey storm water to regional waterways.
Funding for the 50th Street Storm Sewer was obtained through a 2015 voter-approved La Grange referendum. The Village will now further develop plans and approvals with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD).
"The Village would like to thank U.S. Representative Dan Lipinski, U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, MWRD President Mariyana Spyropoulous, and McCook Mayor Jeffrey Tobolski for their strong support of La Grange residents' flooding concerns. Now the real work begins", said La Grange Village President Tom Livingston.
The Village website will include a dedicated section on the status of the project until it is completed.
