Streets, Public Utilities, Public Safety Areas of Concern Among One-Cent Meeting Attendees
The city of Casper held its fourth interactive one-cent meeting Wednesday night at Casper City Hall.
Casper city manager John Patterson says, once again, Casper and Natrona County residents in attendance were concerned with four specific areas that, historically, have been funded in some way through one-cent.
“It probably doesn’t surprise the citizenry that it’s streets, water and sewer – so public utilities – and police and fire,” Patterson said. “So, the top four last time are trending now.”
After the final meeting next month, Patterson says the data will be formally presented to Casper City Council.
“After the city council is given the will of the people, council will establish a list of projects,” Patterson said. “That list of projects will be promoted by CAEDA, the Casper-Area Economic Development Alliance, as we head toward the November election.”
The final interactive public meeting will be held May 15 at Fire Station No. 6, 270 Valley Dr.
The sales tax is up for its 14th consecutive renewal this November. Patterson urges all area residents to fill out the city’s one-cent survey at this website.
