Council Informally Agrees to Fund Events Center, Rec. Center, River Projects With Consensus Funds

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Casper City Council discussed how to spend its $3.7 million share of county consensus funding during its Tuesday work session.

Council agreed to put $1 million toward continued restoration efforts along the North Platte River, another $1 million toward the installation of a new scoreboard and ribbon board system at the Casper Events Center and $1.7 million toward maintenance and facility upgrades at the Casper Recreation Center.

Casper mayor Paul Meyer supported funding all three projects. He says the city has a duty to maintain its facilities and resources.

“It’s so easy to fall into that trap of, ‘Well, I’m not going to change the oil in that vehicle this year,’” Meyer said. “You can’t do that personally, and you can’t do that as a city.”

Not making the cut: A $600,000 Casper Golf Course greens and tees renovation, $1 million toward parking lot reconstruction at multiple city facilities, $1 million toward I-25 corridor beautification and $2 million toward the reconstruction of the softball fields at the Crossroads Sports Complex.

Council must formally approve the individual applications at a future regular session. The State Loan and Investment Board will review the selections after Aug. 1.
