Title

Body

WHEREAS, the City has previously entered into a joint municipal agreement with Dane County to meet the requirements of its Wisconsin Pollution Discharge and Elimination System (WPDES) Stormwater discharge permit for Information and Education (I&E), as part of a group now addressed as the Madison Area Municipal Storm Water Partnership (MAMSWaP); and

 

WHEREAS, the County is willing and able to maintain a half-time position (1,040 hours annually), to provide information, education, and outreach services in furtherance of the stormwater management programs conducted under the WPDES permit;

 

WHEREAS, the City, WDNR, and the other members of the MAMSWaP group have agreed to update the agreement and believe that sharing the cost of I&E is more efficient that each municipality completing the work independently; and

 

WHEREAS, the I&E work completed by the members of MAMSWaP has been well received by the WDNR; and

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Mayor and City Clerk are authorized to enter into an Intergovernmental Agreement with Dane County to provide I&E services as part of the City's WPDES stormwater discharge permit.
