Title

A Resolution authorizing the filing of an application with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, State Revolving Fund Program for grants under the Missouri Clean Water Law (Section 644, RSMo.).

 

Body

This is a resolution in support of the Lee's Summit Public Works Department's grant application to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) for the Stormwater Grant and Loan Program. This grant will contribute $100,663.50 towards the construction of the 2nd St Streambank Stabilization Project. The $100,663.50 grant contribution has the possibility of being increased depending on the availability of unclaimed funds from DNR's Stormwater Grant and Loan Program. The remainder of construction costs will be paid for from the 2017 CIP Sales Tax. This grant reduces the amount of money needed from the CIP sales tax for this project, which should allow local money to be used on other stormwater projects.

 

Key Issues:

                     The City has acquired a grant offer from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources for stormwater construction work

                     The grant must be used for a project ready to construct during 2020

                     A City Council resolution supporting the grant is required to receive the money

 

Proposed City Council Motion:

I move for adoption of a Resolution authorizing the filing of an application with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, State Revolving Fund Program for grants under the Missouri Clean Water Law (Section 644, RSMo.).

 

 

Staff Recommendation

Recommendation: Staff recommends approval.
