Casper City Hall (Brendan LaChance, Oil City)

CASPER, Wyo. — The City of Casper is planning to renovate City Hall for about $3 million.

The city is proposing a $313,260 contract with State Line No. 7 Architects to provide design and construction administration services for the project.

The city council is expected to consider a resolution to authorize that contract during their Tuesday, March 3 meeting.

Two possible sources of funding for the City Hall renovations have been identified. That includes the city’s “Revolving Land Fund” which City Manager Carter Napier told the city council in November had about $1.1 million.

The other source is the “Local Assessment Fund” which had about $2.4 million when Napier discussed that with the council. He said this fund hadn’t been used in about eight years.

The current City Hall building was constructed in 1978 and “is in need of significant improvements.”

The city says that the main objectives for the renovations include the following:
