Immediate facility upgrades will not be coming to a city of Casper-owned shooting range.

Casper City Council on Tuesday rejected a nearly $200,000 bid from a Sheridan-based firm to construct an addition at the Stuckenhoff Shooter's Complex that would have included new restrooms and office space. The project would have also included the installation of a septic tank, pump tank and a drain field.

Casper vice mayor Charlie Powell said construction bids, once again, came in over budget.

“The group that is using the shooter’s complex is working to see if there can be some other fundraising activities, which, of course, would help,” Powell said. “We try to support these amenities as best we can, and support them all to the extent that we can, but, in this case, we simply had to reject those bids.”

Powell said $120,000 was budgeted for the project.

Budgetary concerns linked to construction recently forced council to delay the reconstruction of Mike Sedar Pool and the construction of a new ski patrol and maintenance building at Hogadon Ski Area.
