Libertyville trustees voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve an intergovernmental agreement with the village of Grayslake to share Libertyville's Administrative Adjudication Hearings program.
Joining forces to share Libertyville's program, which covers local parking and ordinance violations, will provide a cost savings for both villages.
"It benefits both villages because they don't have to reinvent the wheel, and it helps share the cost of the expense that we already incur by them reimbursing us for about half of the cost," said Police Chief Clint Herdegen.
The intergovernmental agreement will be in place for three years.
Grayslake trustees approved the measure at their Feb. 19 meeting.
The program is expected to cost Grayslake about $1,800 to $1,900 per year, Grayslake Mayor Rhett Taylor has said, but the village would save about 10 times as much through the reduction in staff time and prosecutor costs.
Additionally, Grayslake will receive 100 percent of the fines collected through the adjudication hearings for Grayslake cases.
