CITY COUNCIL AGENDA
Public Works seeks authorization to submit an application to the Wyoming Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Loan Program for a $27,600,000 loan for the construction phase of the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Facility project. This loan would represent 100% of the expected construction costs. If awarded, construction of the new WWTP facility could begin in the 2020-2021 budget year. The new facility construction is expected to take approximately two years. Staff expects to explore additional funding options to offset loan needs throughout the coming year.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the Resolution Authorizing Submission of the application to the Wyoming Clean Water State Revolving Fund Program for a $27,600,000 loan for the construction phase of the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Facility Project on behalf of the Governing Body for the City of Green River and authorize the Mayor to sign pertinent loan documents.
UPRR has initiated the installation of a new water service to a portion of their yard, and they and the City have determined that a City-owned sewer main is in conflict with their work. The original agreements authorizing the City’s sewer to cross Railroad property define that the City is responsible for the costs of relocating the sewer main. Due to the timing of the Railroad project, the Railroad’s contractor will move the sewer main and the Railroad will bill the City for the costs of the work. Public Works has been watching this segment of sewer due to its poor condition, and we have wanted to replace it for some time. Replacing this segment in cooperation with the UPRR will benefit both parties.
Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Mayor to sign the Union Pacific Railroad Agreement Letter dated August 21, 2019.
The City recently updated its Wyoming Aeronautics Capital Improvement Program (WACIP) for the GRISP. A project identified in the WACIP was the installation of Edge Markers along Runway 4/22. A $7,920 Grant has been approved by the Wyoming Aeronautics Commission and the Certificate of State Grant-in-Aid has been prepared by the WYDOT Aeronautics Division for the City’s Acceptance. A local match is required for the awarded funds. The City allocated funds to complete this project in the FY20 Budget without a State Grant. By obtaining the Grant, the local match will be less than the budgeted amount.
Suggested Motion: I move to ratify the Mayor’s signature for the Certificate of State Grant-in-Aid Form for the Installation of Runway 4/22 Edge Markers Project in the amount of $7,920.
