RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING APPLICATION FOR AND ACCEPTANCE OF A $31,000 CLEAN WATER PARTNERSHIP GRANT FOR CONTINUATION OF THE MILLER CREEK PROJECT.

BY COUNCILOR STOVER:

     RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to apply for and accept a clean water partnership grant, in partnership with the Southern St. Louis County Soil and Water Conservation District, in the amount of $31,000 from the Minnesota state pollution control agency for the continuation of clean-up work associated with Miller Creek, subject to the provision of an equivalent match in the form of providing the use of city services, materials and equipment.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  The purpose of this resolution is to authorize the city to accept a grant from the MPCA to fund the continuation of the clean-up of Miller Creek, undertaken with the cooperation of the Southern St. Louis County Soil and Water Conservation District.


The city and the district have received grant funds in the past which have been used for cleaning the trap and maintaining the mouth of the creek. This city’s matching money would be used for similar purposes and for operating a regional street sweeping program.
