Fiscal Note
No City appropriation is required with the approval of this Intergovernmental Agreement. As part of the agreement, Madison agrees to reimburse Cottage Grove for road construction expenses incurred by Cottage Grove before the annexation of a property to Madison. The amount paid to Cottage Grove will be determined based on the time between the road improvement and the year of annexation. The scale ranges from a 100% reimbursement if the annexation is made during the same year as a road improvement to a 10% reimbursement if the annexation occurs 16-19 years after the road improvement. Future annexations and funding sources to cover these reimbursements would be subject to Common Council approval.
