(b) NOTIFICATION FROM DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES ON BROWNFIELD GRANT APPLICATION NOT SCORING HIGH ENOUGH FOR FUNDING.
City Manager Wilmet explained that in an effort to obtain funding to help pay for the asbestos removal and demolition of the buildings at 14 South Water Street East and 15, 19 and 23 East Milwaukee Avenue, an application for a Brownfield Site Assessment Grant was submitted through the Department of Natural Resources. As a result of this application, the Council adopted Resolution No. 997 on October 17, 2000, supporting the application and committing funds for the City's portion of the cost. However, the City's application did not score enough points to be considered. A score of 111 was needed and our application scored 71. The City Manager stated that he has been in contact with the Department of Commerce in an attempt to secure alternate grant funding. The D.O.C. is now reviewing our scope of work to determine if any of it is eligible for D.O.C. grant funding.
Cm. Gray questioned how the work would be completed without the funding.
The City Manager stated that the current TIF budget does contain funds to cover all of the asbestos and demolition work on the four buildings. If any grant funds are made available, then those City dollars could be used in other areas of the TIF.
Cm. Zastrow, seconded by Cm. Flood moved to accept and file the notification from the Department of Natural Resources on Brownfield Grant application not scoring high enough for funding. The motion carried on a voice vote.
(a) GRANTING OPERATOR LICENSES.
Following a report that the applications had been reviewed and approved for accuracy by the Police Dept., and upon the motion of Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow, the following operator licenses were granted:
