Board and Committee Appointments

Carrie Tuttle has volunteered to join the Tree Advisory Board. She has recently moved here and was excited to see that Green River was a Tree City. She has a passion for trees and has a B.S. in Wildlife Biology. She attended classes in Forestry and Dendrology. She wants to be a part of keeping Green River a beautiful Tree City.

VII.

Resolutions

A.

Consideration of a Resolution transfering funds from the asset seizure fund to purchase police equipment


In recent years, the police department SWAT team has seen a decrease in personnel numbers due to retirements, manpower shortages and lack of interest. The tactical entry team in particular, has seen a decrease in personnel from ten just a few years ago, to five at the start of 2020. However, recent hirings have increased manpower to a sufficient number to support more team members. A renewed interest in SWAT amongst those hirings has allowed the team to increase membership to nine as of this date. With this increase in numbers comes a need for equipment to ensure these new members can effectively perform their duties. This equipment includes ballistic vests, helmets, plates and communication headsets.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the budget resolution transferring $21,428.61 from the Asset Seizure Fund to the General Fund (230.PTPP) for the purchase of special response equipment.
B.

Consideration of a Resolution Approving an Increase in the Capital Projects Fund for a Grant from the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT)


The City has been awarded a grant from WYDOT and this resolution accepts the grant funds and allows the expenditures for the project. 

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution increasing the Capital Projects Fund for a Grant from Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) for the installation of segmented circle at the Airport, in the amount of $36,000. 
C.

Consideration to Approve a Resolution Accepting a Grant from Wyoming Energy Authority


The Parks and Recreation Department has been awarded a grant from the Wyoming Energy Authority to replace the chiller unit at the Recreation Center. This Resolution will accept the grant funds and allow the expenditures for the project.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution accepting a grant from the Wyoming Energy Authority and approving the increase in the General Fund for the Recreation Center Maintenance Program, in the amount of $60,000.
D.

Consideration to Approve a Resolution to Increase the Capital Projects Fund for a Grant from the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultrual Resources


The City applied for and was awarded a grant from the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources for the replacement of the playground at Riverside Park and to reinforce the riverbank of the Green River. This resolution will accept the grant funds and allow the expenditures for the project.

Suggested Motion: I moved to approve the resolution to increase the Capital Projects Fund for a grant from the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources, in the amount of $250,000 to replace the playground at Riverside Park and to reinforce the riverbank of the Green River.

The Parks and Recreation Department is seeking to restore and fortify the riverbank at Riverside Park to protect city assets and replace the existing playground with a new one. LWCF is a matching grant for outdoor recreation projects that can provide funding to the City to accomplish the project.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the grant agreement for the LWCF Grant from Wyoming State Parks for improvements to Riverside Park and to place a restriction on improved land to be used for public outdoor recreation in perpetuity, in the amount of $125,000, pending legal approval.
