Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes an amendment to the non-competitive service contract with the USGS for Urban Flood Monitoring and Watershed Response to Reduced Impervious Cover through implementation of Green Infrastructure. The original contact was adopted by the Common Council on February 25, 2020 (RES-20-00131).
The following table shows the City funding adopted under the original contract authorization, as well as the proposed funding level under this amendment. The amendment would increase the City share of contract funding by $21,500 over five years.
