Council Action Items

A.

Consideration of the 2022 HIDTA Sub-Contract Award from Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation

For more than 20 years, the Green River Police Department has received grant funding through the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) as part of the federal HIDTA program.

In recent years, this funding pays the salary and majority of fringe benefits for one task force officer assigned to the DCI Southwest Drug Enforcement Team. Personnel changes at the Sheriff’s Office during the past year have resulted in an additional open grant-funded position on the task force. DCI leadership has offered this additional position and the funding that accompanies it to the Green River Police Department. The Police Department has been allocated $171,505.52 for the two positions for calendar year 2022. 

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the 2022 HIDTA Sub-Contract Award from Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigation, in the amount of $171,505.52 and authorize Mayor Rust and Chief Jarvie to sign the agreement upon approval by the City Attorney.

B.

Consideration to Release the Retainage for the ADA Improvements Project Phase II

The ADA Improvements Project-Phase II has been completed by DeBernardi Construction and advertised for Final Acceptance. 

Suggested Motion: I move to release the retainage for the ADA Improvements Project - Phase II, in the amount of $8,076.50 and authorize the Mayor to sign the WYDOT Certificate.
