While Natrona County government looks for ways to cut its expenses, the city of Casper is considering what to do with excess revenue. Around $12 million in left-over funds comes mostly from one-cent #13, with another million from excess general revenue.

City council, at its work session this week, indicated they'd like about half of that to stay in the bank, with just over $5 million marked for city capital projects and community based non-profits.

"We have put $1.9 million toward city projects that really are for the welfare of our community. And then we also spent $3.6 million on projects for some of our local agencies."

Those agencies include, Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies, the All American Center for Youth, and the Platte River Parkway.

A public hearing on the proposed allocations is scheduled for September 18th.
