Analysis

This resolution authorizes the Department of Public Works, Infrastructure Services Division, to accept and fund a Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District Green Solutions grant with a maximum reimbursement amount of $210,312 for the construction of two green alleys.

Body

Whereas, The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) is responsible for collecting and treating wastewater from local sewerage systems; and

 

Whereas, Green infrastructure, such as green alleys, reduces the volume of stormwater in the sewer system and the amount of pollutants discharged to surface waters; and

 

Whereas, Green alleys consist of permeable pavers constructed in the center 4-foot of newly reconstructed alleys; and

 

Whereas, MMSD desires to promote the installation of Best Management Practices such as green alleys and is willing to provide the City funding up to a maximum reimbursable amount of $210,312 as part of its Green Solutions program; and

 

Whereas, The Common Council has adopted File Number 171855 authorizing the expenditure of capital funds for construction of said green alley projects (SM499180006 and SM499180007) at locations bounded by the areas:

 

                     West Fairmount Ave, West Villard Ave, North 51st Blvd and North 53rd St (N-S Leg); and

                     West Burleigh St, West Chambers St, North 90th St and North 91st St; and

 

Whereas, The unused portion of said capital funds shall be returned to the parent account; and

 

Whereas, The two alleys are being reconstructed as part of the City’s 2018 alley paving program; and

 

Whereas, The cost of the green alley portion of said alley reconstruction projects is approximately $210,312; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Commissioner of Public Works is authorized to accept and execute the MMSD Green Solutions grant without further Common Council approval, unless the terms of the grant change as indicated in Common Council File 030712; and, be it
