Council Action Items
A.
Consideration to Enter into an Agreement with the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources and the State Historic Preservation Office
The City and County applied for a grant with the Wyoming Historic Preservation Commission to perform a structural review of the Carnegie Library. The building has been unused for many years and the City and County would like to review the viability of the building. The grant is a 60/40 grant from the Historic Preservation Commission. The Historic Preservation Commission will fund $12,000 in cash for a structural review and the City and County will supply the match. The match will consist of $3,500 of cash already budgeted for by the City and $4,500 of in-kind contributions from City and County staff.

Suggested Motion: I move to enter into an agreement with the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources and the State Historic Preservation Office for a structural evaluation of the Green River Carnegie Library, in the amount of $20,000.
