Written by jordanmckamey on December 10, 2018
The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors recommended four Business Ready Community (BRC) funding requests and approved six Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) applications during its Dec. 6 meeting in Laramie.
The Business Council board’s decisions on CDBG applications are final. The board’s BRC recommendations will now move to the State Loan and Investment Board (SLIB) for final approval at its 8 a.m. meeting on Jan. 17.
The Town of Basin received a $370,000 Community Development Block Grant to demolish and clear a blighted building in downtown Basin. The building, previously the Eagles Hall, is collapsing onto the sidewalk and into the adjacent street, posing a health and safety risk.
