Council Action Items

A.

Consideration to Authorize the Submission of a Grant Application to the Wyoming Business Council for a Local Government Energy Improvement Retrofit Grant to upgrade Recreation Center lighting to LED.


The Wyoming Business Council (WBC) currently has a program to help municipalities reduce operating costs through energy efficiency. We have worked with the WBC program consultant along with Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) to determine the most effective project. Through a series of grants and RMP incentives, we have converted most lighting in City facilities to LED. The Recreation Center is the remaining building to not fully be converted to LED. If granted, the project will provide energy savings, improved lighting, and reduced maintenance needs.

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Parks and Recreation Department to submit a grant application to the Wyoming Business Council for a Local Government Energy Improvement Retrofit Grant for up to $25,000, to upgrade Recreation Center lighting to LED.
