Staff recommends termination of the Interlocal Agreement with Lake County for improvements to the Main and Lake Street intersection.
The City of Leesburg was asked to evaluate the intersection of Main Street and Lake Street to determine if improvements are needed. Information gathered from the investigation included crash history, roadway features, which include center line geometry, curb return radius, sight triangles, super elevations, pavement structures, cross slopes, longitudinal grades, drainage and right of way. The study concluded that no changes to the roadway are recommended at this time.
The Interlocal Agreement states Lake County will reimburse Leesburg for the costs associated with the study. The County requested the City Commission take formal action to terminate the agreement, and at that time they County will reimburse the City $14,550.00 for the cost of the study.
1. Terminate the Interlocal Agreement with Lake County, approved by Resolution No. 7714, at the August 28, 2006 Commission meeting; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funding of $14,550 was available to advance this project, and Lake County will reimburse the City for the study.
