Aeronautics Commission meeting to vote on the air service budget modification

Department of Transportation shared the following:

The Wyoming Aeronautics Commission will meet June 24 by teleconference. The commission will meet at 1 p.m. and will vote on the Capacity Purchase Agreement and Wyoming Aviation Capital Improvement Program (WACIP) budget modifications for the fiscal year 2019 and 2020.


The Capacity Purchase Agreement is a long-term contract to provide air service to as many as four Wyoming cities. A committee of aeronautics subject matter experts and stakeholders working with the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s Procurement Office selected SkyWest to provide air service to Gillette, Riverton, Rock Springs, and Sheridan.

The WACIP is a compilation of all anticipated improvement projects for each public airport in Wyoming. The commission may hold an executive session at the end of the meeting if necessary.

The phone number to join the teleconference is (888) 531-9486. Commission meetings are open to the public. The public may join the Wyoming Department of Transportation staff in the WYDOT executive staff conference room at 5300 Bishop Boulevard.

The commission’s next meeting will be July 16 in Cheyenne.
