Title
Resolution amending the Community Workforce Agreement as part of the Milwaukee Energy Efficiency program and the Property Assessed Clean Energy financing program.
Analysis
As part of the Milwaukee Energy Efficiency (ME2) program, the City of Milwaukee had implemented a Community Workforce Agreement to ensure that the job creation from the program benefited Milwaukee residents and created family-supporting jobs. This resolution revises the agreement to place the compliance responsibility in the Department of Administration and ensures that the labor standards do not adversely impact the adoption of energy efficiency building improvements.
 
Body
Whereas, The City of Milwaukee had been awarded grant funds from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to finance building energy retrofits; and
Whereas, On July 27, 2010, The Common Council adopted Resolution File Number 100007, authorizing the Department of Administration - Office of Environmental Sustainability to enter into a cooperation agreement with the Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation (WECC) to implement the ME2 program; and
 
Whereas, That cooperation agreement included a Community Workforce Agreement to ensure that the jobs created by Me2 were family supporting jobs that benefited Milwaukee residents; and
 
Whereas, The Common Council through resolution 121139 established the Milwaukee Promise, as an ongoing program to address poverty, disparity and inequality in the City of Milwaukee, and this CWA reflects the goals of the Milwaukee Promise
 
Whereas, The Council file 121591 established a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing program to stimulate the market for energy efficiency upgrades; and
 
Whereas, The Common Council, through resolution 130576 authorized the Department of Administration to negotiate and enter into an amended cooperation agreement with the Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation, establishing the roles, responsibilities and allocation of resources between the Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation and the City, both as to general project oversight and the allocation and use of year 2014 grant extension award funds for the Me2 program, consistent with the objectives, terms and conditions of the U.S. Department of Energy grant award; and
 
Whereas, The resulting agreement shifts the compliance function from the Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation to the Department of Administration, and
 
Whereas, The Me2 program will no longer be offering rebates or incentives for participation in the program and has reduced funding available to support staff that are available for contractor compliance; now therefore be it
Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Common Council approves the attached Community Workforce Agreement, and directs the Department of Administration - Office of Environmental Sustainability to execute the attached standards on Me2 and PACE financed projects.
