CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper City Council is set to discuss potential amendments to the Casper Municipal Code tonight at 6 p.m. The topic of interest? Updates to Section 10.52.030, which deals with DUI offenses, according to a memo prepared for the council.

This section, which hasn’t been revised since 2002, focuses on driving or controlling a vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating substances.

The proposed amendment seeks to synchronize Section 10.52.030 with Wyoming State Statute §31-5-233. City staff have recommended that a Public Hearing for this ordinance be scheduled for Oct. 3.

The proposed addition to the ordinance reads:

“c. Any drug or psychoactive substance, or any combination of these substances, capable of impairing a person’s physical or mental faculties.”

The memo for the City Council can be found below.

Due to ongoing and extensive renovations at City Hall, the City Council will meet in The Lyric, 230 W. Yellowstone Highway, at 6 p.m. with a pre-meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. The session is open to the public. Those interested can watch a video of the work session on the City of Casper YouTube channel.
