Northwest College Leaders Mull Building Questions
POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — Plans for a county sales tax for infrastructure needs in November are prompting Northwest College officials to consider other funding options to complete a building project.
The Wyoming Legislature in March approved $9.4 million in state funding for the college to build the planned Yellowstone Academic Workforce Training Building. But the college must raise another $4.9 million as its share of the project.
Northwest College President Paul Prestwich tells the Associated Press that many options have been discussed if the sales tax plan fails.
But he says it will be a few weeks before college leaders are ready to make any recommendation to the college Board of Trustees on how to raise the local match.
