Council Action Items
A.
Consideration of a Bid Award for the Cease & Transfer Project - Transfer Station Construction
The Bid Opening for the Cease and Transfer Project - Transfer Station Construction was held on February 16, 2017 resulting in four bids. The apparent low bid is from L.M. Olson, Inc. in the amount of $1,970,000 for the base bid. The project includes the construction of a transfer station building and associated appurtenances at the existing landfill scale house site on Upland Way. Construction will begin March/April and is expected to take six months. The Engineer's estimate was approximately $1,990,000 for this schedules work.

Suggested Motion: I move to un-table and award the bid for the Cease & Transfer Project - Transfer Station Construction to L.M. Olson, Inc. in the amount of $1,970,000, and authorize the Mayor to Sign the Agreement.
B.
Consideration to Authorize the Mayor to Sign a Grant Agreement with Wyoming Forestry Division
The purpose of this grant is to accomplish a comprehensive tree inventory and plot all city trees on a software program. The software program plots all trees on an interactive map which would be available to the public via the City's website. The data from the tree inventory will allow us to manage the urban forest more efficiently, make informed decisions regarding species and location of future tree plantings, and serve as a public education tool. The grant does not require a cash match. The 50/50 match will be made primarily through in-kind services from the software company as well as some staff tome to assist with the tree inventory.

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Mayor to sign the Community Forestry grant agreement with the Wyoming State Forestry Division in the amount of $10,000 for a tree inventory and tree plotter software.
