Ordinances

CONSIDERATION ON FIRST READING OF THE WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS ORDINANCE
Consideration on first reading of the Wireless Telecommunication Ordinance. The Wireless Telecommunication Ordinance creates provisions within the Green River Zoning Ordinance regulating the construction and placement of cell towers.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve on first reading amendments to Appendix B, Zoning, by adding Chapter 16, Wireless Telecommunication Facilities. 
VIII.
Resolutions
A.
Consideration of a Resolution to Support and Participate in the Wyoming Smart Capital Network
The City joined the network program in 2013 to help small businesses with funding opportunities. The program started with Evergreen Federal Funds from the US Treasury from the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010. The funds were designed to create jobs by helping small businesses gain access to capital funds. Administrating the funds individually was time consuming and complicated. Seventeen municipalities joined together to form the Wyoming Smart Capital Network to bring this capital resource to their communities. With the Treasury's oversight ending, the entities have the ability to continue in the program or exit out of it. The City itself does not receive any direct funding from the program, but by participating it will give an additional potential funding opportunity for local small businesses.
 
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution and amendments to the Services Agreement with the Wyoming Smart Capital Network to administer the Small State Business Credit Initiative.
IX.
Council Action Items
A.
Consideration to Approve the Final Acceptance of Work Completed for the WYDOT Urban Systems Streets Project
During 2016, the Wyoming Department of Transportation contracted with Lewis & Lewis, Inc. for the reconstruction of portion of East Teton Blvd., West Teton Blvd., and Hitching Post Drive as the Green River Streets Urban Systems Project. After the repair of several issues during 2017, the project is now complete. The contractor has requested acceptance of the completed improvements in accordance with their contract with WYDOT. WYDOT is seeking the City's concurrence for the final acceptance of the completed improvements.

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Mayor to sign the WYDOT Acceptance Certificate for the Green River Streets Urban Systems Project.
