The agreement is for engineering services at the intersection of W. 72 nd Avenue and Indiana Street and for the grade separation of 72nd Avenue and the Union Pacific Railroad.
Also part of the consent agenda, which was passed unanimously, was the acceptance of a grant to benefit a local elementary school.
Council accepted a grant of $37,990 from Great Outdoors Colorado for the Little Elementary School playground and community garden project.
City Council unanimously passed a resolution authorizing an intergovernmental agreement with the city of Lakewood for police training.
The agreement, which is not to exceed $16,800, allows for four new Arvada police officers to attend Police Academy training. Partnering with Lakewood for police training saves both cities money per officer trained.
