Council Action Items
A.
Consideration of a Bid Award to Jack's Truck & Equipment for a New Heavy Duty Conventional Cab Chassis with Sewer/Catch Basin Cleaner Body
The City solicited Bids for a Sewer/Catch Basin truck for the Environmental Systems Division.  Five Bids were received from vendors. Upon review of the information submitted with the Bids, several of the Bids have been determined to be non-compliant with the specifications. Staff is recommending awarding the Bid to Jack’s Truck & Equipment Bid #1, which includes a Vactor body mounted on a Freightliner chassis. The total cost of the vehicle with the trade in of unit 42-34, a 1992 Sewer/Catch Basin Truck, will be $513,924.

Suggested Motion:
 I move to award the Bid for a New Heavy Duty Conventional Cab Chassis with Sewer/Catch Basin Cleaner Body to Jack’s Truck & Equipment Bid #1 in the amount of $513,924.
B.
Consideration to Enter into an Agreement with the YWCA Center for Families and Children
The YWCA CFC submitted a request to the City asking for help in purchasing a transport vehicle. Last spring one of their transport vehicles was in a hit and run accident. The vehicle was totaled and the insurance proceeds were not enough to purchase a new vehicle. The YWCA CFC is requesting the City of Green River, the City of Rock Springs and Sweetwater County help obtain an additional $15,000 to purchase a new transport. The City recommends giving the YWCA CFC $3,500 to help purchase a new transport.

Suggested Motion: I move to enter into an agreement with the YWCA Sweetwater County Center for Families and Children, to help purchase a new transport vehicle, in the amount of $3,500.
C.
Consideration to Sell the Older Animal Control Truck to Lyman, Wyoming Police Department
The Lyman Police Department asked the City if they would be willing to donate or sell very inexpensively one of our old animal control trucks. The City has a 2003 ACO truck, which the Police Department was intending to surplus. The truck would benefit the Lyman Police Department significantly. If the truck is sold to Lyman PD it will save the City a considerable amount of time in taking off the police equipment that must be removed before it could be sold to the public, thus staff is recommending to sell the truck to the Lyman PD for the title transfer fees.

Suggested Motion: I move to sell a 2003 Chevrolet Animal Control truck to the Town of  Lyman for the cost of the title transfer fees.
D.
Consideration of the Election of Council President and Vice-President

Suggested Motion: I move to elect Council Member __________ as Council President and Council Member __________ as Council Vice-President.
