Title:
Adopt Resolution #17-08-207 Approving Contract with the University of Minnesota for the Resilient Communities Project
Purpose/Background:
On February 14, 2017, the City Council approved an Application to the University of Minnesota's Resilient Communities Project (RCP). Subsequently, the City of Ramsey was chosen as the Community Partner for RCP for the 2017-2018 Academic Year.

The purpose of this case is to approve the final contract. This contract sets the expectations for the program. The benefit to the City of entering into this contract is to ensure the City receives the quality product is expects when it applied to the program, a step that was previously approved.
Notification:
Notification is not required.
Observations/Alternatives:

Funding Source:
The total cost of participation is $80,000, divided into two (2) payments of $40,000 (one payment in fiscal year 2017, one payment in fiscal year 2018). This represents one full academic year.
