VI.
Resolutions
A.
CONSIDERATION OF A RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF CREATING A UNIFIED DEVELOPMENT CODE
The purpose of this resolution is to seek the governing body’s support of creating the Green River Unified Development Code.  A Unified Development Code approach combines the traditionally separate zoning and subdivision regulations, along with other development related regulations, procedures, standards and policies, into one document called the Unified Development Code. The process of creating a Unified Development Code, will involve participation by a steering committee.  To help ensure communication with the Governing Body throughout this process, staff is requesting the Mayor appoint one to two members of the governing body to serve on the steering committee. 

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution to support the creation of the Green River Unified Development Code.

B.
Consideration to Approve Joint Resolution #SWBFY15/16-11
In 2014 the Wyoming Legislature appropriated $70 million in Countywide Consensus Grant funding to counties for the biennium 2015-2016 in which Sweetwater County's portion was $4,606,214. Currently, there is $90 that was relinquished by entities in Sweetwater County that have completed their BFY15/16 projects. The funding can be moved to the only open project which is Wamsutter's Street Lighting Project by Resolution. Moving the funding will clean up the unobligated appropriation balance sheet that is communicated to the State Loan and Investment Board and Wyoming Legislature.  

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the joint resolution #SWBFY15/16-11 moving $90 of Countywide Consensus Block Grant Funding to Wamsutter.
C.
