Resolutions

A.

Consideration of a Resolution to Fund the Flaming Gorge Corridor Study and Airport Runway Improvements


During the carry over resolution process I missed adding in the amounts for the Flaming Gorge Corridor Study. This study is a $50,000 study to aid the City and WYDOT for the eventual replacement of Flaming Gorge Way. Most of the study is paid for by a $50,000 grant from WYDOT the City has a $5,775 match for the study.

During the recent work done by the National Guard, there were a few minor items that needed to be paid for by the City. Staff thought it would be a good idea to have a small incidental fund to help with some minor airport runway repairs. This will add a $10,000 budget line item to pay for minor items for the airport.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution increasing the Capital Projects and General Funds for the Fiscal Year carryover, in the amount of $65,775.

Council Action Items

A.

Consideration to Authorize the submission of a grant to the Wyoming Energy Authority (WEA) for a Local Government Energy Improvement Grant


The WEA 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 gymnasium chiller is nearly 20 years old and is only able to operate at half capacity due to failed compressors. The estimated cost to replace the chiller is $58,000. This expenditure would be a necessary expenditure regardless of the results of the grant. With a new chiller providing energy savings this enables the City to be eligible for a $25,000 grant to assist with the cost.

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Parks and Recreation Department to submit a grant to the Wyoming Energy Authority for a Local Government Energy Improvement Grant to replace the gymnasium chiller at the Recreation Center.
XI.
