(Lander, Wyo.) – The Lander City Council this evening will consider re-applying for nearly $5 million in loans for upgrades to the city’s Wastewater Lagoons and the Sanitary Sewer and Manhole Rehabilitation project.
Clerk Robin Griffin said in an interview that the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality has increased the scope of the project, and therefore the council has to apply for loans beyond what it had already received. She believed these new applications would replace what was already approved. The previous loans through state entities allowed for 50 percent principal forgiveness. Griffin was unsure whether that would remain the same.
A public meeting regarding the changes to the project is scheduled for 6 p.m. tonight at Lander City Hall. Following the public meeting, the council will vote on re-applying for the loans.
Additionally on the council’s agenda for the evening is appointing a committee to oversee project selection for completion using 1 percent sales tax funds. On the recommended committee list are Sollie Cadman, Wade Alexander, Mike Quinn, Del McOmie, Jerry Heckart and Dick Hudson.
