17. NORTH CARBON AVENUE LANDSCAPING PROJECT - City Participation
Nick Tatton reported that he was approached by Dave O=Brien, owner of Heirloom Inn on North Carbon Avenue, regarding landscaping on the parking strip around the lot located behind his building and kiddy corner across from the Notre Dame Church. He will excavate and remove all grass in the parkway, plant trees, lay down fabric and install bark and tap on to his water system to water the trees. This will make his property look better and clean up the area. The Notre Dame Church, who owns the lot, has agreed to these changes. Mr. O=Brien would like the City to participate in the costs for this project. Nick stated that the Parks Department has fabric weed barrier left over from the Creekview project and has plenty of chips that they make themselves. This takes away half of the cost. If this works out well, perhaps we could do it in other areas of the City. The parking lot is open to the public for various functions, not only for the church but for functions at the Elks Lodge as well and it would save the City money in not having to keep the weeds down. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved that the City participate in this project on a 50/50 arrangement not to exceed $1,027 to include that portion of the fabric and bark in the amount of $616 and that an agreement be prepared for this participation to include that the Notre Dame Church approved of this project. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.

The Carbon County Attorney has prepared this agreement that works for all agencies rather than 6 separate agreements. If the Cities approve this concept, a formal agreement will be brought to each City for approval and signatures. MOTION. Councilmember Denison moved that the proposed agreement be
