(Lander, WY) – 1330 KOVE AM / 107.7 FM’s Coffee Time host Vince Tropea had Lander Assistant Mayor RaJean Strube Fossen on today’s show, where she gave us further details on the Table Mountain Living Community, Lander’s City owned healthcare facility.
The living facility was recently approved to apply for a $987,895 infrastructure grant at the November 30th Lander City Council meeting, which would pay for sewer, water and gas power.
Early estimates during the initial feasibility study put the total cost of the facility at $11 million, but is now projected at $13-15 million, which would include construction, contingencies, and one year operating costs.
The facility design and construction is set to begin in June courtesy of ERDMAN, and while The Creeks Memory Support Residences had originally partnered to manage, the Lander Housing Authority will now act as the managing agency.
A public competitive proposal process was followed where Vetter Senoir Living, current operators at Westward Heights, was ultimately selected as the operator of the care facility.
Check out the full Coffee Time interview with Assistant Mayor Strube Fossen below, where she also gives us the background on how the facility got started, and what we can expect in the facility’s future in terms of timeline.
