Consideration of a Resolution Modifying the General Fund Budget in the Police Department Patrol Division


Police patrol rifles have reached the end of life and need to be replaced. The old rifles have been traded in for parts to reduce the cost of new rifles and the department intends to use restricted seizure funds to pay for the remainder of the replacement cost of $25,156.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution modifying the General Fund Budget for the Police Department Patrol Division for the purchase of new rifles, in the amount of $25,156. 
VII.

Council Action Items

A.

Consideration to Award the 2020 Slurry Seal Project to Intermountain Slurry Seal

Funding is available in the 2019-20 budget to perform a Slurry Seal Project on Green River City Streets. Bids were opened on April 16, 2020 with one Bid received as shown on the Bid Tabulation. 

Suggested Motion: I move to award the 2020 Slurry Seal Project to Intermountain Slurry Seal, in the amount of $105,419.00 and authorize the Mayor to sign the Agreement.

B.

Consideration to Approve the CWSRF Loan Agreement Documents for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement


The City applied for a CWSRF Loan from the State Lands and Investment Board, in the amount of $27,600,000.00. On April 16, 2020 the City was notified that the State Loan and Investment Board had approved the application. The Loan Agreement, Promissory Note and the Assignment and Pledge of Revenues are required to be approve and sent back the State Lands and Investment Board to finalize the loan.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the Loan Agreement, Promissory Note and the Assignment and Pledge of Revenues with the State Loan and Investment Board, in the amount of $27,600,000.00 for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Project, pending legal approval.
C.

Consideration of Memorandum of Agreement with the Federal Bureau of Investigations

The FBI has had a satellite office with one resident agent in Sweetwater County. In the 1990's that field office was moved to Jackson where it has remained. Approximately a year ago, the Special Agent in charge of the Denver FBI field office expressed his intention to return the satellite office to Sweetwater County and staff it with two agents. To facilitate the move in a timely manner, the possibility of housing the office temporarily with a local agency was discussed. After evaluating options the preferred option would be to house the agents in an unoccupied space on the top floor of the Green River Police Department.

This would require some building modifications to include bringing separate phone and data lines into the PD, installation of conduit and independent cooling brought into a closet next to the office area to serve as a server room. All modifications would be made by the City and reimbursed by the FBI.

A Memorandum of Agreement has been developed outlining the requirements and reimbursement arrangements as well as a monthly rental fee for the space. While the FBI intends to create a seperate office space in the community in the future, the duration they will be at the PD is expected to be 2 to 4 years.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the MOA with the FBI, Denver Division and authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to sign the agreement.

D.

Consideration of Memorandum of Understanding with Southwest Counseling Service

The Police Department has been working with the Sweetwater County Prevention Coalition in its efforts to implement substance abuse prevention measures throughout Sweetwater County. These efforts are funded through a State prevention Grant. A major goal of the coalition is to reduce underage use of alcohol. A strategy developed in support of this goal is the distribution of ID scanners to organizations in our community that host events where alcohol is consumed. In order to facilitate the availability of these scanners, it has been proposed that they be housed at the Green River Police Department where they can be checked out. A requirement under the grant funding is that an MOU is in place between Southwest Counseling Service and the PD detailing responsibilities of each organization.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the MOU with Southwest Counseling Service and authorize the Mayor to sign the agreement, pending legal approval.

E.

Consideration to apply for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG), Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant.


The Green River Fire Department would like to apply for the AFG's SAFER Grant to assist in funding a fourth person as a full-time employee for the fire department. This grant is a matching grant where the first two years the City's portion would be 25% and the third year the city would have to match 65% after that the city will be fully responsible for the funding of this employee. This grant is only available to new positions.

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the submission of grant application for the Assistance to Firefighters Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Grant (AFG SAFER) from the Department of Homeland Security for a new staff position in the Fire Department.
VIII.
