CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper City Council is set to hold a work session starting at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 9 at Casper City Hall.

The council is set to discuss implementing pay raises for 11 supervisors, 91 general full-time employees and 63 sworn police officers during the work session. The pay raises would be part of the city’s efforts to switch to a new employee compensation model based on recommendations provided by Graves Consulting.

During the work session, the council will also discuss the process to select a new mayor and vice mayor. To select a mayor, the city council generally provides nominations from among members of council. Once nominations are made, the council will take an informal straw poll during an upcoming work session. The council members selected out of this voting process would be considered for formal approval as Casper’s next mayor and vice mayor during the January 4, 2022 regular meeting.

In addition, the city council is set to talk about the city’s watering operations and spending. This item will be discussed after Council member Kyle Gamroth requested it be brought up during a work session so that the council could consider whether there might be any water and cost saving measures that could be implemented.

The council will also discuss how to measure progress it has made toward achieving council goals that were set in spring 2021.

The city council’s full agenda for the work session is available online.
