Lander City Council to host three public hearings during regular meeting Tuesday

    The Lander City Council will hold a regular meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, in the City Council Chambers at 240 Lincoln St.

    The agenda begins with three public hearings.

    The first is regarding a Community Development Block Grant application to extend Jefferson Street into Popo Agie River Park.

    The second public hearing is regarding a proposed amendment to include city park rules in Lander’s parks and recreation ordinance.

    The amendment says all parks and recreational facilities in the city will have rules posted on signs, and people who violate those rules will be considered in violation of city ordinance – a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $750 or imprisonment for up to six months.

    The final public hearing on the agenda is regarding the city’s budget amendment for fiscal year 2022-2023.


    The council will consider approving all three items under new business later in the meeting.
