CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper City Council is set to hold a regular meeting starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, December 21.

During the meeting, the city council is expected to consider authorizing water and sewer utility rate increases. The proposed increases would hike sewer rates by 11% to begin 2022 and again by 11% to begin 2023. Water rates would increase 7% to begin 2022 and again by 7% to begin 2023. The council will also consider some adjustments to Casper Solid Waste Facility rates during the meeting.

The city council will also be asked to consider authorizing a memorandum of understanding between the city and the Natrona County School District that would give NCSD ownership of property at Highland Park for tennis courts. NCSD would be required to invest $2-5 million to improve existing tennis facilities at the park under the proposed agreement.

Another item on the council’s agenda calls for the council to consider authorizing the “OneWyo Opioid Memorandum of Understanding.” That is an agreement that relates to distribution of funds to county and municipal governments from a lawsuit pertaining to the national opioid epidemic.

The council will also consider a number of other items during the meeting. Further details are available in the council’s work packet.
