Resolutions
A.
Consideration of a Resolution Accepting a $5,000 Donation from the Assembly of God Church for the Purpose of Purchasing a Drug K-9 for the GRPD
The GRPD was recently approached by the Assembly of God Church with a request to assist the Department monetarily in some way. After some discussion about the recent lost of the Departments drug K-9, the Church requested to donate $5,000 in order to assist the GRPD with replacing the dog. The Church provided the city with a restricted funds donation letter and a check for $5,000. The funds will be moved, by Resolution, into a Patrol spending program to assist with the purchase of the new dog.

Suggested Motion:  I move to approve the resolution accepting a donation from the First Assembly of God Church for the purchase of a drug K-9 and approving a modification in the General Fund for the Police Department's Patrol Division, in the amount of $5,000.

B.
Consideration of a Resolution Amending the Schedule of Fees by Increasing the Solid Waste Rates
There has been a significant amount of discussion about when to increase the solid waste rates. The transfer station construction has started and to continue operations as is the City needs to facilitate a rate increase to secure funding for the equipment and building. A rate that  would not draw on the current reserves and start building the fund balance reserves for the fund would be approximately $43 a month for residential. A minimal rate increase that would draw on the fund's to almost $0 would be just over $38.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution amending the FY 2017 Schedule of Fees increasing the solid waste rates.
VIII.
Council Action Items
A.
Consideration to Approve Amendment #7 to the Landfill Engineering Services Agreement with Inberg Miller Engineers
The City entered into a Landfill Engineering Services Agreement with Inberg Miller Engineers (IME) in 2009.  Since that time, IME has provided landfill groundwater monitoring and closure permitting assistance to the City.  The current Amendment #7 would extend the term of IME services to the City related to landfill groundwater monitoring and landfill closure design in compliance with the City’s Cease and Transfer Grant and Loan parameters.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve Amendment #7 to the Landfill Engineering Service Contract with Inberg Miller Engineers for $16,950, and authorize the Mayor to sign the Amendment.
B.
Consideration to Approve an Agreement with Honnen Equipment Co.
Since the City no longer has a dozer for the Landfill operations the Division has been renting a dozer as needed.  Two rental rates were received; the lowest quote was submitted by Honnen Equipment Co. The rental rate for a John Deere 850K Dozer for a one month period is approximately $9,000 including transportation costs. It is expected that the dozer rental will last no more than 3 months. 

Suggested Motion: I move to approve a rental  agreement with Honnen Equipment for the rental of a dozer, in the amount of $9,000 per month, and authorize the Mayor to sign the Agreement.
C.
Consideration to Authorize the Green River Fire Department to Submit a Grant Application to the Tesoro Corporation
This grant is for an enclosed tandem axle emergency response trailer and equipment to be included.  The equipment inside will be used in the case of a spill in the river corridor or interstate and will better assist the Green River Fire Department.  It will have the ability for rapid deployment to pipeline spills in the river and tanker accidents on the interstate. The trailer will be equipped with all of the necessary equipment needed to respond in a safe and coordinated manner. Tesoro has the trailer manufactured and fully stocked with all of the equipment for our use. 

Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Green River Fire Department to submit a grant application to the Tesoro Corporation for an enclosed tandem axle emergency response trailer and equipment, in the amount of $100,000. 
D.
Consideration to Approve a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Jackson Police Department and Teton County Sheriff's Department
The City of Jackson Hole PD is requesting the GRPD to send several officers to the Jackson area for the August 21st eclipse event, due to the expected increase in population that the event will bring in. Should the GRPD have adequate staffing at that time, we will send 2-3 officers to Jackson to assist with law enforcement issues. The City of Jackson Hole is handling all costs for the officers associated with this assistance. 

Suggested Motion: I move to approve and authorize the Mayor to sign a Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Green River, the City of Jackson Police Department and the Teton County Sheriff's Department for the purpose of assistance for the eclipse event in August. 
E.
Consideration to Approve an Agreement with K-9 Working Dogs International
An agreement listing costs and responsibilities involved with the purchase of a drug detection K-9 for the Police Department. A $5,000 donation and $2,500 grant have been secured to assist in financing the dog and training that will be received. The $2,500 grant is dependent upon the agreement.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the agreement with K9 Working Dogs International for the purchase of a drug K-9 and associated training.
