Council Action Items

A.

Consideration to Approve a contract with Duty Dogs for the purchase of a trained therapy dog

At the Feb 2, 2021 council meeting, council authorized the Police Department to seek a Children’s Trust Fund Grant for a therapy canine. The department received word on February 19th that $6,000 has been designated to the Green River Police Department through the grant for the purchase and training of a therapy dog. Duty Dogs has a three-month-old puppy (Buddy) ready to be trained that has demonstrated behavior traits desirable in a therapy dog. The proposed contract is for the purchase of Buddy and the training necessary for him to perform as a therapy dog.

Suggested Motion:
I move to approve the contract with Duty Dogs for the purchase and training of Buddy, in the amount of $6,000 and authorize the Mayor to sign the agreement.

B.

CONSIDERATION OF A CONTRACT FOR CUSTODIAL SERVICES WITH CASTLE CLEANING COMPANY

This will be a contract with Castle Cleaning Company for custodial services for July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 at the Recreation Center. In an effort to ensure the maximum benefit to the City of Green River, service contracts are issued for one year, with the ability to negotiate for renewal for up to three years. Castle Cleaning Company is the current service provider and in negotiating a contract renewal amount, Castle Cleaning has proposed $60,000.00 for the renewal amount. This amount represents no increase in the contract. Cleaning Company has been efficient and responsive in meeting the needs for custodial services at the Recreation Center.
