CITY COUNCIL AGENDA
Funding is available in the 2019-20 budget to perform a Slurry Seal Project on Green River City Streets. Bids were opened on April 16, 2020 with one Bid received as shown on the Bid Tabulation.
Suggested Motion: I move to award the 2020 Slurry Seal Project to Intermountain Slurry Seal, in the amount of $105,419.00 and authorize the Mayor to sign the Agreement.
The FBI has had a satellite office with one resident agent in Sweetwater County. In the 1990's that field office was moved to Jackson where it has remained. Approximately a year ago, the Special Agent in charge of the Denver FBI field office expressed his intention to return the satellite office to Sweetwater County and staff it with two agents. To facilitate the move in a timely manner, the possibility of housing the office temporarily with a local agency was discussed. After evaluating options the preferred option would be to house the agents in an unoccupied space on the top floor of the Green River Police Department.
This would require some building modifications to include bringing separate phone and data lines into the PD, installation of conduit and independent cooling brought into a closet next to the office area to serve as a server room. All modifications would be made by the City and reimbursed by the FBI.
A Memorandum of Agreement has been developed outlining the requirements and reimbursement arrangements as well as a monthly rental fee for the space. While the FBI intends to create a seperate office space in the community in the future, the duration they will be at the PD is expected to be 2 to 4 years.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the MOA with the FBI, Denver Division and authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to sign the agreement.
The Police Department has been working with the Sweetwater County Prevention Coalition in its efforts to implement substance abuse prevention measures throughout Sweetwater County. These efforts are funded through a State prevention Grant. A major goal of the coalition is to reduce underage use of alcohol. A strategy developed in support of this goal is the distribution of ID scanners to organizations in our community that host events where alcohol is consumed. In order to facilitate the availability of these scanners, it has been proposed that they be housed at the Green River Police Department where they can be checked out. A requirement under the grant funding is that an MOU is in place between Southwest Counseling Service and the PD detailing responsibilities of each organization.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the MOU with Southwest Counseling Service and authorize the Mayor to sign the agreement, pending legal approval.
