Members appointed to Council for People with Disabilities

CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper City Council passed a resolution authorizing the creation of “Casper’s Council for People with Disabilities” during their Tuesday, July 16 meeting.

That Council will help advise the City Council on matters pertaining to people with disabilities “as they relate to activities of daily living; including employment, recreation, transportation, architectural accessibility” or other areas of concern.

The idea to create such a Council modeled after a similar one on Cheyenne was brought to the Casper City Council during their March 12 work session.
