Casper City Council Proposes Excess Fund Allocations
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.
