D.

Consideration of Letter Requesting a Modification to the City of Green River's Wastewater Treatment Plant Discharge Permit

During the COVID pandemic, the City of Green River and the Wyoming Department of Health partnered to purchase a composite sampler for the wastewater entering the treatment plant.  The composite sampler allows the City to get a sample over a period of time versus a grab sample that is taken instantaneously.  The composite sample gives a more consistent result when performing laboratory analysis.  This is a request to allow composite sampling on the City's existing permit.

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Mayor sign a Letter Requesting the Permit Modification with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality for the use of a composite sampler. 

E.

Consideration of a Professional Services Agreement for the City of Rock Springs and the City of Green River Joint Biosolids Handling Project

In July 2021, the cities of Rock Springs and Green River entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to investigate the feasibility of a joint biosolids handling program.  It was thought that a joint venture could save both Cities money with a joint site and joint equipment.  Biosolids are a byproduct of an Activated Sludge Wastewater Treatment Plant, which the City of Green River is planning to build.  The Cities jointly conducted a selection process including requesting Statements of Interest, issuing a Request for Proposals, and interviewing potential firms to prepare a study and recommendations for biosolids handling in both communities. The selection committee recommends that the Cities enter into an Agreement with Forsgren Associates, Inc. to conduct the study. The total cost of $126,000 will be split evenly between the two cities, as outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding.

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Mayor to sign the Agreement for Engineering Services with Forsgren Associates, Inc. for the Joint Biosolids Handling Project to be completed in conjunction with the City of Rock Springs. 

F.

Consideration to Approve an Amendement to the Software Agreement with ConvergeOne

One of the City's largest network components, the core switch will be nearing the end of its supported life in 2024. Since this is one of the most important pieces of network equipment we want to replace it before it comes out of support. The current order lead time for this equipment is about nine months, thus we want to order it as soon as we can. In March the City entered into an agreement with ConvergeOne to provide network management for the City. Since ConvergeOne will have to support the installation of this piece of equipment we are requesting the Council allow us to add the installation of the core switch to the support agreement to ensure continuity and stability of the system.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the amendment to the agreement with ConvergeOne for managed support services in the amount of $75,351.49 and authorize the Mayor to sign the agreement.
