CASPER, Wyo. — On Tuesday, the Casper City Council will vote on a resolution to establish how the City of Casper would use optional one-cent sales tax dollars over the next four-year cycle should voters decide to renew the countywide tax this November.

For the past few months, the City Council has been discussing how the city should spend the $64.5 million it anticipates will be its share of the countywide one-cent tax over the next four years. Details on the proposal that will be voted on, as well as how it has changed as the City Council’s discussions have proceeded, are available in this article.

During Tuesday’s regular meeting, the City Council will also consider two liquor license transfers. First, the City Council will consider whether to approve a request to transfer the ownership and location of Retail Liquor License No. 13 from the Keg & Cork at 5371 Blackmore Road to 307 Golf at 455 Thelma Drive.

The council will then vote on whether to approve the transfer of Retail Liquor License No. 5 from 307 Horse Racing at 138 S. Kimball St. to a new location at 5371 Blackmore Road. This transfer request does not involve a transfer of ownership.

The City Council will also consider an ordinance change on first reading Tuesday relating to parking rules in Casper. The ordinance change is in regard to zoning, and the City Council is being asked to consider the change in order to make the Municipal Code consistent in regard to recent parking on the parkway rule changes.

The City Council will consider on second reading an ordinance amendment to grant Mountain West Technologies a franchise agreement that would run through April 26, 2037.

With the city planning to apply for $14.4 million in American Rescue Plan Act grants for a variety of utility-related projects, the City Council will be asked to authorize applications for those grants on Tuesday.

The City Council will also consider a land acquisition matter during an executive session, the city announced Tuesday.

There are a range of other items the City Council will consider during Tuesday’s regular meeting, with details available in the council’s work packet:

The Casper City Council meeting will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2 at City Hall, 200 N. David St. The meeting can be streamed via the City of Casper’s YouTube channel:
