The latest editions of the International Code Council's building codes have been released and adopted by the State of Wyoming.

Council Action Items

A.

Consideration of the Revised 2022 HIDTA sub-contract award Agreement

During the January 18th City Council meeting Council approved a sub-contract with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation in the amount of $171,505.52 for the funding of two task force officer positions for calendar year 2022. Since that time, the grant to DCI which funds their pass through to the City has been finalized and the amount allocated to the City has been increased to $192,894. As this is a change in the agreement approved in January, a second approval is required.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the 2022 HIDTA Sub-contract award of $192,894 and authorize Mayor Rust and Chief Jarvie to sign the agreement.

B.

Consideration of a Memorandum of Agreement with the Department of Transportation

The Wyoming Department of Transportation is pursuing a project to improve the traffic signals along Uinta Drive in Green River. As a part of this project, WYDOT has determined that it needs a Traffic Signal Facility Easement from the City of Green River to complete the work.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the Memorandum of Agreement with the Wyoming Department of Transportation and authorize the Mayor to sign the Memorandum of Agreement and Traffic Signal Facility Easement.

C.

Consideration of Amendment One to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) Grant Agreement

In 2020, the Parks and Recreation Department obtained a Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) Grant to repair a portion of the Riverbend and Riverside Park and replace the playground. The global pandemic ensued as well as an expansion of the project with additional grant funds added. In order to complete the obligations of the grant, as well as implement the pathway replacement and lighting related to the Transportation Alternative Program, which the City recently received, we have requested an extension and Wyoming State Parks and LWCF agreed to the extension. The extension gives us until 2025 to access the grant funds and allows the projects to move forward without multiple closures of Riverside Park.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve Amendment One of the Land and Water Conservation Funds Grant Agreement with the State of Wyoming, Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources, Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails.
