Hotly debated both in governmental meetings and on the street, a measure to approve the spending of $10 million more dollars on expanding Randall Road from four lanes to five will be voted upon by McHenry County Board members at Tuesday’s meeting.
Details of the proposal are explained in the memo distributed to Board members:
Board/Committee Action Requested: For consideration is a resolution approving the acquisition of right-of-way for the Randall Road widening and resurfacing capacity improvement project in Algonquin Township and appropriating funds for said property acquisition.
Background: This resolution approves an additional $10,000,000.00 needed to continue the purchase of property for the project. On February 4, 2014, $5,000,000.00 was approved by the County Board to begin the land acquisition.
Discussion: The acquisition of land is being funded through County funds at 100% in order to expedite the land acquisition process.
Impact on Budget (Revenue, Expenses, Fringe Benefits): The MCDOT budgeted for this purchase in FY2016 and has it programmed in FY2017.
