The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors will hold an interim call-in meeting on June 11 to consider a Business Ready Community application from Alpine, Wyoming.

The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. at the Wyoming Business Council office located at 214 W. 15th St. in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Alpine requests a $3 million Community Readiness grant to purchase private water and sewer infrastructure from North Star Utility (NSU). (Staff recommends funding in full)

The Wyoming Business Council administers the Business Ready Community Grant and Loan Program, which provides financing for publicly owned infrastructure that serves the needs of businesses and promotes economic development within Wyoming communities.

The Business Council board is required by statute to forward BRC grant recommendations to the SLIB for final approval. The SLIB is comprised of the five statewide elected officials: the governor, secretary of state, state auditor, state treasurer and state superintendent of public instruction. The board’s recommendations will be presented to the SLIB at its June 18 meeting held at 8 a.m. in room B-63 of the Herschler Building in Cheyenne.

If unable to attend the meeting in person, the public can watch the live video at https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/561075477. After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. The link will provide the video/audio feed, depending on available bandwidth.

Those who wish to speak during the meeting should call Executive Assistant Linda Hollings at 307-777-2803 or send an email to wbcmeeting@wyo.gov prior to the end of the work day on June 10. Participants will be asked to state their name, when they would like to speak and the phone number from which they will call so they can be unmuted at the appropriate time.
