Title
Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to apply for and accept an Urban Nonpoint Source & Storm Water Management Program Grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for streambank restoration of Nakoma Channel.  (10th AD)
Body
PREAMBLE
 
The Nakoma Channel is located in Nakoma Park near Thoreau Elementary School and runs along the south side of Cherokee Drive. The channel is severely eroded. Trees along the edge of the channel need to be periodically removed as the soil around them is washed away, creating a hazard. The sediment is washed into Lake Wingra downstream. Bank stabilization, likely consisting of a combination of glacial stone and native plantings will reduce future bank erosion.  
 
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the City of Madison requests $138,000 in funds available from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Urban Nonpoint Source & Storm Water Management Program;
and
 
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that if the grant is awarded, the City Engineer is directed to include matching funds, in the amount of  $138,000 in the  2015 Capital Budget.
