CASPER, Wyo. — On Tuesday, the Casper City Council authorized the execution of a grant agreement between the City of Casper and the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments.

The grant agreement will allow the City of Casper to receive a $1 million American Rescue Plan Act grant to support a Wastewater Treatment Plant secondary rehabilitation project, according to a city staff memo.

The City of Casper applied with the Wyoming OSLI for ARPA funding to support six projects, with OSLI approving the city’s request for funding for the secondary rehabilitation project, the memo added.

The $1 million grant will add revenue to the city’s Wastewater Treatment Plant fund. That fund has $1.5 million already set aside for the secondary rehabilitation project under the city’s fiscal year 2023 budget, the memo added. The full memo can be reviewed below:
