Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution adopts the Sustainable Madison Committee’s (SMC) recommended work plan and authorizes initial negotiations between the City and Madison Gas and Electric. The proposed resolution does not have budgetary impact at this time. Elements of the proposed work plan may result in future budget amendments. The proposed plan calls for the creation of a high level position, housed in the Mayor’s Office, to coordinate the implementation of the work plan. The annualized cost of the position is $95,500.
