CITY COUNCIL AGENDA
The Summer Day Camp Program has been growing from its inception in 2007 and in the past three years has made a substantial jump in participation. The operations and maintenance budget has not grown with the evolution of the program and this year the camp jumped from 130 participants in 2018 to 156 in 2019. This requires an additional transportation source and supplies for those children. The Parks and Recreation Department staff have applied for and been awarded a Rec Mil Grant for the past three years. This grant has ranged from $7,000 to over $11,000 which is almost our entire O&M Budget. The past two years we have been able to pay expenses with our current O&M without asking for a resolution but now with the growth in the program we are no longer able to cover the expenses.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the budget resolution to accept the School District #2 Rec Mil Grant Award for the Summer Day Camp Program, in the amount of $11,439.
For more than ten years the Police Department has participated in the Wyoming Highway Safety Selective Traffic Enforcement Grant Program through the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police. The program provides reimbursement of overtime funds to agencies that participate during special traffic enforcement periods that focus on decreasing DWUI's and increasing vehicle occupancy safety. The grant pays all overtime wages for officers who work during the grant period.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the Wyoming Highway Safety Grant Agreement with the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police for Fiscal Year 2020 and authorize the Mayor to sign the agreement upon approval by the City Attorney.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Green River and Sweetwater County for the placement of the "Fox" sculpture.
