Title: Amending the 2021 Stormwater Utility Capital Budget to allow for the acceptance of a $250,000 grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). (19th AD)
Sponsors: Keith Furman

Fiscal Note

The proposed resolution authorizes the application for the WDNR Sport Fish Restoration (SFR) - Boat Access grant and amends the adopted 2021 Stormwater Utility Capital budget to accept the grant award reimbursement in the amount up to $250,000. Sport Fish Restoration grants normally limit awards to 50% of eligible project costs due to high demand for these funds. If awarded, this grant would assist with funding for the Spring Harbor dredge project to maintain public boat access to Lake Mendota. If the City is successful in receiving SFR funds, Recreational Boating Facilities state funds (if awarded) can be used as match.
