Council Action Items

Consideration of Award of Task Order #10 to Inberg Miller Engineers for Materials Testing Services for the ADA Improvement Project
On February 3, 2015, Council approved a Master Service Agreement with Inberg Miller Engineers to provide Geotechnical Engineering and Materials Testing Services for City projects on an On-Call basis. The Engineering Division has negotiated Task Order #10 for materials testing services related to CD16308 2015 ADA Improvements Project. Task Order #10 ($3,800) will provide materials testing services for the curb, gutter, and sidewalk.

Suggested Motion: I move to award Task Order #10 to Inberg Miller Engineers for Materials Testing Services for CD16308 2015 ADA Improvements Project, in the amount of $3,800.
B.
Consideration to Approve the Statement of Work with Venture Technologies for the Streets and Parks camera project.
Venture Technologies is requiring a Statement of Work with them to be signed by the City of Green River prior to starting this project. Staff from the PD and IT Departments have reviewed the statement and made changes in agreement with Venture to allow the project to begin.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the Statement of Work with Venture Technologies and authorize the Mayor to sign the statement.
C.
Consideration to Submit a Local Government Energy Improvement Retrofit Grant to the Wyoming Business Council
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 to determine the most effective project. The recommendation from the consultant is to upgrade 236 decorative lighting poles to LED technology. The estimated savings would be an approximate $6,945/year in energy costs and reduced operations and maintenance costs in the future. The Parks and Recreation Department would like to apply for up to a $25,000 grant to perform the upgrade. There is a 10% cash match requirement. If we are successful in obtaining the grant the cash match will be paid back in a few months in operational savings.

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