Unable to create this extruded feature due to geometric conditions

I'm trying to extrude the purple area in towards the direction of the arrow .25in.
so basically everything on that face except for the circle

and if i make the circle tangent with the top line and try to extrude it says

"The sketch has intersecting contours.
Pick a sketch entity to define an open or closed contour. To define a region, pick inside an area bounded by sketch geometry."

if the circle ends prescisely tangent to the edge, there won't be material left (this is correct but confuses the software - it doesn't what to do with the faces/surfaces). I'd suggest you make the circle diameter minutely larger and fillet the sharp corners with a very small radius just to clean it up
