Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing execution of an interlocal agreement with Lake County for design of intersection improvements at Main Street and Lake Street.
The City of Leesburg requested assistance from Lake County for intersection improvements at Main Street and Lake Street. Construction of this improvement is in the County’s work program, but scheduled for a later time. The County will reimburse the City and this interlocal agreement will allow the City to move the design of the intersection forward. The City will use one of its continuing contract consultants, Kimley-Horn, to perform the work.
Staff will bring design plans to the Commission for approval and will also bring an additional interlocal agreement for construction of the intersection. The County must approve the intersection design prior to construction.
