Consideration of the Ratification of an Agreement with AquaVitas, LLC
The primary objective of this project is to provide the Governor, State Health Officer, County Health Officers and local officials the most granular data possible on the pandemic for an additional time period. This has the potential to inform policy actions going forward and help communities understand the level of risk they are facing.
AquaVitas, LLC presented to the Council at the December 15, 2020 council meeting. The City Council came to a consensus that this would be a good project to support. To be in the first phase of testing, AquaVitas, LLC requested a signed agreement prior to our next council meeting. Since the City Council was in consensus with the project the agreement was signed and requested the Council ratify the agreement at the 01/05/2021 City Council meeting.
Suggested Motion: I move to ratify the agreement signed by the Mayor with AquaVitas, LLC to provide testing of the City's wastewater for SARS-CoV-2 and novel coronavirus.
