Consideration of a Resolution to Increase the General Fund for a Grant received from the Wyoming State Forestry Division

Suggested Motion:  I move to approve the Resolution declaring and imposing an immediate 90 day moratorium on the acceptance, review, and processing of applications for wireless telecommunication towers in all residential and commercial zoning districts within the City of Green River, Wyoming, for the purpose of allowing the City adequate time to amend its land use regulations to adequately address the placement and construction of wireless telecommunication facilities.

VIII.
Consent Agenda
A.
Approval of a Memorandum of Understanding Establishing a Joint Fire Investigation Team
The magnitude and multi-faceted aspect of fire investigations can often extend beyond the resources and capabilities of local jurisdictions. Due to the violent nature of fires and the significant threat to public safety, it is necessary and prudent to have a combined approach to fire investigations utilizing all local agency resources whenever possible. The purpose of this MOU is to adopt a team approach to fire investigations and aid all local agencies in establishing that goal. This team will work jointly to investigate fires, and when necessary, assist in the prosecution of fire related crimes with Sweetwater County. The Joint Team will consist of members from the Sweetwater County Fire District #1, Rock Springs Fire Department, Green River Fire Department and the Sweetwater County Fire Department.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve and authorize the Mayor to sign the Memorandum of Understanding establishing a Sweetwater County Joint Fire Investigations Team.
