ATTENTION TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS:
The Town Board is pleased to report that an arbitrator ruled that the key provisions of the settlement agreement between the Township and the City are enforceable. The City had fought against the settlement agreement that a quorum of its City Council signed on May 31. The Township’s success in the arbitration means the following:
Detachment of eligible Phase I properties will go forward. The arbitrator not only ruled in the Township’s favor on this key point, but also ordered that the City is “directed to cooperate and as soon as practical to carry out” the detachment process and other settlement terms;
The City’s obligation to forgo annexation without property owner petition until June 1, 2018 is enforceable;
The City’s obligation to return the revenue derived from Phase I properties remains in place;
The properties previously detached from the City will remain detached.
The Town Board attempted to persuade the City to voluntarily comply with these terms. Unfortunately, the City chose not to do so for the last five months. The arbitration award means that those key provisions will be enforced over the City’s objection. For your information, the full arbitration award has been posted on the Township’s homepage. The Town Board is pleased that its position was upheld and looks forward to implementing these settlement terms.
