Badass Brews LLC applied for a new microbrewery liquor license on January 13, 2023. The application was sent to the State and has been approved. The public hearing was advertised on January 19th, 26th and February 2nd, 2023. This is the final step to approve this license.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has opened the application period for the FY22 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. Staff is requesting permission to submit a grant application for this program requesting $298,009.29 in federal funding for the purchase of 45 self contained breathing apparatus. The SCBA's would replace the Fire Department's current SCBA's that are no longer manufactured and present concerns regarding support and replacement parts.
Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the submission of a FY22 Assistance to Firefighters Grant to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, in the amount of $298,009.29 with a required match of $14,900.46.
Since the Police Department opened we have had issues with the LG VRF units. These are uncommon units in Wyoming and no local technicians exist to service and repair the units. When they have issues we have to hire certified LG contractors out of Utah to make repairs. This is expensive and often they cannot respond for several weeks. This agreement allows for Long Building Technologies to send our regular technician to training to become LG certified and we will split the cost with them. As part of the agreement, they will service and repair the units at the Police Department. This will provide savings and security to the City.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the training services agreement with Long Building Technologies for training on the LG VRF system at the Police Department, in the amount of $2,755.
The WWTP Replacement Facility is financed using loans from the State Revolving Fund administered by the Office of State Lands and Investment. This ARPA Grant will provide funding for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Project to supplement previously awarded loan funding.
