Title
Resolution relative to acceptance and expenditure of a FY2021 Environmental Protection Agency Brownfield Cleanup Grant for 3100 West Capitol Drive.
Analysis
This resolution authorizes the Department of City Development to accept and expend a FY2021 Environmental Protection Agency Brownfield Cleanup Grant for 3100 West Capitol Drive in the amount of $600,000 with a City Share of $100,000 and a Grantor Share of $500,000. The purpose of the program is to assess, clean up and redevelop underutilized properties while protecting public health and the environment.

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Department of City Development (“DCD”) shall accept this grant without further approval unless the terms of the grant change as indicated in Section 304-81, Milwaukee Code of Ordinances; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the City Comptroller is authorized to:
