CASPER, Wyo. — The roof at the CATC bus barn could be replaced and a new fleet vehicle purchased for $60,000.

The Casper City Council said they agree with allocating this funding as part of their Fiscal Year 2020 budget.

“If we’ve got a roof leaking, it’s not a question of if, we’ve got to replace it,” Councilman Chris Walsh said.

The idea was presented during Council’s Wednesday, May 22 special budget work session.

The $60,000 was initially proposed for other CATC vehicle replacements, but due to changes to federal rules about when vehicles can be retired, City Manager Carter Napier said that CATC would like to use the funding for the roof replacement and purchase of a single vehicle instead.
