VII.
Board and Committee Appointments
A.
Appointment of Jane Fillmore to the Joint Powers Water Board
The Joint Powers Water Board has recommended the appointment of Jane Fillmore to her first term. She was elected to fill the vacancy of Patty Smith's term which began February 2014 and will end February 28, 2017. Since Mrs. Fillmore was a fill-in appointment, her time on the board is not considered to be her first term. Under the agreements between the cities and county that outline the times and methods the cities appoint board members, Mrs. Fillmore is actually eligible for another two full terms as a Green River appointee.  

Suggested Motion: I move to confirm the Mayor's appointment of Jane Fillmore to the Joint Powers Water Board for a three (3) year term beginning March 1, 2017 and ending February 29, 2020.

Resolutions
A.
Consideration of a Resolution Adopting the Wyoming Region 4 Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan
Sweetwater County and incorporated communities within Sweetwater County have spent several months working with a consultant to complete our portion of the Wyoming Region 4 Hazard Mitigation Plan. Region 4 consists of Sweetwater, Lincoln, and Uinta Counties. The last step to obtaining a 'FEMA-Approved Plan' is for each participating jurisdiction to adopt the plan.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution adopting the Wyoming Region 4 Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan.
B.
Consideration of a Resolution Establishing and Officially Designating Bank Depositories for the City of Green River
Financial institutions must file an application once a year with the Finance Officer/Treasurer including a certified copy of the resolution adopted by the board of directors of the banking institution as established by Section 9-4-806 of the Wyoming State Statutes.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution officially establishing and designating bank depositories for the purpose of earning a secured rate of return for the City of Green River.
IX.
Consent Agenda
A.
Approval of an Agreement with SpyGlass Group LLC
Spyglass Group, LLC is an organization that will come in to review the City's telecommunication agreements and services to see if they can amend or change services to save the City some money. The consultants work on a commission basis so any savings on services they find they will receive a percentage or payment of 12 months of savings.

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Mayor to sign the agreement with Spyglass Group, LLC to review the City of Green River's telecommunication services.
B.
Approval of the Request for 24 Hour Bar Openings
The Green River Liquor Association (The Embassy Tavern, Ponderosa Bar and the American Legion) would like to request the following dates for 24 hour bar openings during 2017. St Patrick's Day, Friday March 17, 2017; Flaming Gorge Days June 23 & 24, 2017; and Halloween Saturday October 28, 2017. State Statutes allow the governing body to authorize modified hours for not more than four days per year upon petition submitted in January of each calendar year from a majority of the licensees.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the special twenty-four hour bar openings requested by the Green River Liquor Association for Friday, March 17, 2017; Friday, June 23, 2017; Saturday, June 24, 2017 and Saturday, October 28, 2017.
