Agreement (Grand Illinois Trail/Island

Lake Segment)

On April 26, 2007, the Village Board of Trustees of Island Lake approved an intergovernmental agreement with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) concerning the creation of Grand Illinois Trail. A copy of the IGA is attached as Exhibit A and a copy of the minutes of the meeting where the IGA was approved are attached to this memorandum as Exhibit B. Under the IGA, the Village agreed to cooperate with IDNR on the construction of the proposed trail within the Village's borders and to include certain construction obligations in its agreement with Walnut Glen subdivision, which the Village did when it approved the Walnut Glen development approvals.

We were recently contacted by the IDNR for a copy of the signed IGA which they need for their records. Unfortunately, the Village was unable to locate a signed copy of the IGA in its files. Although the Village Clerk provided a signed certification to the IDNR that the IGA was approved by the Village Board (Exhibit C), the IDNR requires that the IGA be signed by the Mayor and Clerk. Because neither the Mayor nor the Clerk served in those roles at the time the IGA was approved in 2007, we have recommended that the current Village Board formally authorize them to sign the IGA. The proposed action does not "reapprove" the IGA since it was validly approved in 2007; instead, this action merely authorizes the current Mayor and Clerk to sign the IGA in the form approved in 2007.

I will be at the meeting on January

12th to answer questions

about this issue.

as he became Mayor, same said ta him that he is very fortunate ta be able fo choose the majorify that theMayor MayorHydesaidthatsomepeopleevensalcf Itwasadlfficultsituatlan. offhe Trusteesthatheworkswifh. chose yes people, When the Mayor chose Trustees, he looked for experience and he asked for a commitmenf fa the Village and fo vote far yourconsciousness. Mayor Hyde asked these Trustees to closely evaluate decisions and to make decisions based on the bestinterests of the community. Mayor Hyde stated that there's no question, one Trusfee has strong, negative feelings towards fhe Police Chief andif's been placedin front af everyone. Mayor Hyde presented some Special Voting Cammittee Meeting Apri/26, 2007- page 3 of 5
Mayor Hyde stated fhaf

facls and thoughts ior considerefian before the Board votes on this ordinance. He stafed fhat as you look at all the employees in the Village, including the Department Heads, Clerical, Wafer Dept., Public Works, Police Department, etc., our Police Chief wi(i be the only personnel in the Village naf to receive a raise this year. The only personnel in the Village. Mayor Hyde said thaf as the Board looks back, there were some different peaple up here; however, the same situation came

aur Public Works Director. He was the only person not to receive a pay raise. At that point and time, it wes vetoed, the budget, and carried baclr and fhe Board approved a raise for that employee. Mayor Hyde said, as you look al the Department Heads this year, they will receive a 6-7% pay raise which is in!ine. Our Police Chief will be making less than the subordinates that he is working with. That generally doesn't fit. Mayar Hyde said thaf he daesn't know of any alber PolIce Chief fhat he can find that is working without insurance covered. He reported fhaf he made quite a few calls today asking that question. Mayor Hyde said our Police Chief does not have health insurance coverage which equates to a $ 13,000 to $14,000 expense. Mayor Hyde passed aut an updafed study. The last time the Board saw this study, it's been updated since then, there are some changes. Mayor Hyde said that this sfudy is a Nldeer municipal survey. There are 18 communities most like island Lake on fhe study. Mayor Hyde said that larger communifies do pay higher salaries. Island Lake would not pay a salary obviously like Arlington Height or Scheumburg or fhe li/&e. He said if yau look at population, Island Lake is tl&e fauifh largest in the survey. When you looir at the salary, Island La/(e is at the boftom af the survey, the second to the bottom. The anly community lower than island Lakeis Sleepy Hollow. As you look at the service calls, Island Lake is the second from the highest and again on the bottom for salary. When you look at personnel, Island Laice is third from the highest and again on fhe baftom for salary. Mayor Hyde stated that the vacation schedule, he can naf find a Police Chief that is on a one year staifing employee vacation. When's hired as a Police Chief, you'e a Senior employee, hired because of your experience and background andin many circumstances, one probably comes from an extensive employment somewhere else such as our Police Chief did. He said you'e coming in as a Senior employee and as a senior employee, you don' stan out with ane week of vacation. Mayor Hyde said it's different when you'e walking in wifh 30 some years of Police force experience. He said one wouid normally nat accept a one week vacatian in a contract. He said that the ordinance also takes away the vehicle. The 18 communities an the survey, in 17 of them, the Police Chief takes home a vehicle. Mayor Hyde said that what fhe Boardis looking at doing here, they are 100% wrong. He said that communication is strong and important. In the first year of Chief Fe//mann's hiring, the Police Committee had two meetingsin a year. He feels that it is not righf that the Chief did not receive an invitation fo those meetings. The communication back and forth, between the Board and the Chief, end the Chlefback to the Board, don't match at all, the Mayor repoiter. Mayor Hyde said fhat communication fram the Chief baclr fo fhe Board is daily as well as is extensive. Mayor Hyde said that when the Board asked far more feedback fhey received itinstantly on every area that fhey asked for. Mayor Hyde said that Monday of this week, Trustee Guida asked to negotiate with the Police Chief. if the Mayor said, there were no negotiations, he thin/cs each Board Member wauld know what he ls say(ng. It was put on the table and said "that's it". He does not believe that' appropriate at all. Mayor Hyde stated that he is ask!ng the Board to sit down with the Police Chief, an execuflve meeting among the Board, to iron out and take a look at the specifics of the negativity that's been alleged against fhe Police Chief. He said thaf in our Country, we are guaranteed the right to a free trial, a prior trail, a fair trial and he feels that nothing has been fairin the communication back and forthin fatal of this Board. He said evenin fhe execufive meeting that the Baard held, to review this matter, on a Saturday, the Pa/ice Chief was notinvifed to the meet/ng to review concerns. He said there Mayor Hyde is asking the Board tonight, before they vote, ta fake a look at has nat been that overall communication. He said fo the Board thaf fhey've gof the time, to take an evening next week, bring fhe Boar d together, pick consideration. aut those elements that the Board has concerns with and allow the Police Chief fo address those concerns. Mayor Hyde said that there isn't one bit of statisfics that says that this ls righf, The salary Isn't right. The car isn't rig/it. The vacation isn't right. There's nothing right with this. Mayor Hyde said that as you step back and take a look at politics, unfortunately himself that word has been stepped on he beiieves. He hapes the Board will give the Police Chief the opportunity to a/law Members. If the Board decides then after that, that this is the only wey to go and right to review these areas with the Board matters that they have way to go, at least he'l feel that fhe Board has given the Chief fair and proper attention to the concerns with. To this poinf, this has not been done.
