Public Hearing
A.
PUBLIC HEARING FOR SPECIAL USE APPROVAL FOR A DAYCARE CENTER REQUESTED BY THE SWEETWATER COUNTY CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER
A public hearing to consider a request for Special Use Permit approval, filed by the Sweetwater County Child Development Center, to operate a daycare center in their current facility located at 1715 Hitching Post Drive.
VI.
Resolutions
A.
Consideration of a Resolution to Carryover Projects for FY 2018
During the budget process the City only budgets for new projects. Any project that was started in FY 2017, that will not be complete until FY 2018, is budgeted through a separate resolution. The reason for this is to calculate a more accurate remaining budget balance and to allow payments for the projects to be made without being held up in the budget process. 

Suggested Motion:  I move to approve the resolution increasing the Capital Projects and General Funds for Fiscal Year 2018 Carryover, in the amount of $5,872,079.
B.
CONSIDERATION OF A RESOLUTION GRANTING SPECIAL USE PERMIT APPROVAL TO THE SWEETWATER COUNTY CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER
Consideration of a resolution to approve a Special Use Permit filed by the Sweetwater County Child Development Center to operate a daycare center in their current facility located at 1715 Hitching Post Drive.  The facility is owned by the City of Green River.

Suggested Motion:  I move to approve the resolution granting Special Use Permit approval to the Sweetwater County Child Development Center for a daycare center in their current facility located at 1715 Hitching Post Drive, Green River, Wyoming.
C.
CONSIDERATION OF A RESOLUTION VACATING AND TRANSFERRING BY QUITCLAIM DEED PORTIONS OF THE WEST 3RD NORTH RIGHT-OF-WAY
To consider a resolution vacating and transferring by quitclaim deed portions of the West 3rd North right-of-way to adjacent property owners, as authorized by Resolution No. R17-19.

Suggested Motion:  I move to approve the resolution vacating and transferring by quitclaim deed to adjacent property owners, portions of the West 3rd North Street right-of-way as legally described within the resolution.
VII.
Council Action Items
A.
Consideration to Approve the FY 2018 Air Service Enhancement Program Cooperative Agreement
The City of Green River has entered into a similar agreement with Sweetwater County and the City of Rock Springs over the past several years. The City's share of this agreement is 22% of the total billing, or $139,208.74.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the FY 2018 Air Service Enhancement Program Cooperative Agreement with the City of Rock Springs and Sweetwater County, for the amount of $139,208.74, pending legal approval.
B.
Consideration of Change Order #1 for the 2017 Capital Improvement Project-Hitching Post Drive Reconstruction Project
This 2017 CIP project is ongoing, and while the road was being reconstructed, a blank run of conduit was requested to be added.  This conduit run is similar to the run that was added to the Second South Street Project last year.  This run will allow for future expansion of fiber optic lines and at a considerable savings to trenching after the road is built.  The prices for the additional conduit are the same as last year’s bid item prices.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve Change Order Number 1 for the 2017 CIP – Hitching Post Drive Reconstruction Project (6th Penny Year 4), in the amount of $12,625.00, and authorize the Mayor to sign the Change Order.
C.
Consideration of Change Order #4 - 2016 CIP-2nd South Street Reconstruction Project
This 2016 CIP project is ongoing, and bid item quantity adjustments need to be made as we prepare to close out the project.  Items include additional rock mulch for areas, mulch around the trees for weed prevention, additional cost for concrete approaches, and spare light fixtures.  These items were added to address areas within the City right-of-way that needed the extra attention.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve Change Order Number 4 for the 2016 CIP - 2nd South Street Reconstruction Project (6th Penny Year 3), in the amount of $55,000, and authorize the Mayor to sign the Change Order.
D.
Consideration of the Release of Retainage and Change Order #1 for Colliers Lift Station Modifications Project
The Colliers Lift Station Modifications Project was completed by Dale Weaver Wyoming, LLC, and advertised for Final Acceptance.  There were no claims on this project.  The Final Adjusting Change Order (#1) is in the amount of $1,924.50.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the release of retainage in the amount of $24,253.00 and to approve the Final Adjusting Change Order in the amount of $1,924.50 to Dale Weaver, Wyoming, LLC. for the Colliers Lift Station Modifications Project.
E.
Consideration to Accept $28,036 in Drug Seizure Funds from the Wyoming Office of the Attorney General
An agent from the GRPD, assigned to the DCI Southwest Task Force, assisted in a criminal investigation in 2015 that resulted in a large seizure of funds. The funds were surrendered to the Attorney General's Office and now are being disseminated to the assisting agencies for use on restricted items associated with law enforcement. The GRPD will use these funds in the future to make purchases that would normally be budgeted.

 Suggested Motion: I move to accept $28,036 from the Attorney General's Office to the GRPD drug seizure fund.
VIII.
Consent Agenda
A.
Approval of a Joint Retainage Account Agreement with L.M. Olson, Inc.
Per Wyoming Statue a contractor completing a capital construction contract with a Wyoming governmental agency may request and have a joint account to hold the retainage for a project. L.M. Olson, Inc. has requested a joint retainage account be with the City.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve a joint bank account agreement with L.M. Olson, Inc. for retainage.
