Authorization for Community Green Infrastructure Funding delayed as MWRD Board Fights for Stormwater Services for all Cook County Communities
Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) Board Meeting
November 19, 2020
Commissioners absent: Morita
The Board approved all but one of the day’s agenda items.
Agenda Item number 53 (20-1022) was deleted by Commissioner Deborah Shore following a pointed discussion with staff about making policy without Board involvement or approval. The discussion illuminated MWRD’s difficulty accepting stormwater responsibilities in communities outside the MWRD’s corporate boundaries, where it does not have a mechanism to collect revenue.
Other Agenda Items:
Item 10 20-0974. Commissioner Garcia asked that Item 10 be pulled for discussion.
Item 41 20-1018 Commissioner Shore pulled this item because it funds in part additional personal protective gear for workers.
