Title
Resolution authorizing the acceptance and expenditure of a grant from The Recycling Partnership and the Can Manufacturers Institute’s Aluminum Beverage Can Capture Recycling Grant Program to implement a capital improvement project for the City of Milwaukee Waukesha County Joint Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).

Analysis
This resolution authorizes the Department of Public Works to accept and expend a cash grant from the Aluminum Beverage Can Capture Recycling Grant Program in the amount of $65,000 with a city share of $0 and a grantor share of $65,000.
