GREEN RIVER — There will be a public hearing on the budget for the 2019-20 fiscal year before the Green River City Council votes on adopting it Tuesday. The fiscal year runs July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020.

The city will collect an eight-mill levy for the property taxes for operations in the general fund, which includes about $16.3 million in expenditures, $15.5 million in revenues and another $1.22 million in funding. See more budget figures at

The meeting will also include a resolution on the wages of elected and appointed city officials. The salaries of the mayor and council members will remain unchanged at $1,500 a month and $1,000 a month, respectively.

City Administrator Reed Clevenger, who previously saw his salary rise from $135,279 a year in 2017-18 to $147,290 a year in 2018-19, could see it go to $148,763 a year.

The salary for Green River Municipal Court Judge Jason Petri, which was $76,508 a year in 2017-2018 and $80,000 in 2018-19, may see it rise to $82,400 a year.


Additional items on the agenda include:

— The City Council will consider a $21,468 contract with Long Mechanical Solutions to provide heating, ventilation, and air conditioning services for city facilities. Under the proposal, it will provide maintenance and repairs services at the City Hall, Expedition Island, Police Department, Animal Control and the Recreation Center for the same cost as its previous agreement.

— The city of Green River reached a landfill engineering services agreement with Inberg Miller Engineers in 2009. Since that time, it has provided landfill groundwater monitoring and closure permitting assistance to the city. A $10,000 amendment would extend the term of IME services related to landfill groundwater monitoring.

— A memorandum of understanding will allow the Green River Fire Department to provide service to Jamestown Fire Control District in exchange for the mill levy collected by the district.

Under the agreement, the city will furnish firefighting personnel and equipment if they are available and not already fighting fires with Green River or on standby.

The city will not be liable for any property damages or injuries sustained while the GRFD is fighting fires in the district, nor be liable for failure to respond to any call.

— The city will proclaim Flaming Gorge Days to run June 24-30.
