County Returns Unused Funds to State

Written by on August 16, 2017

Thanks to some careful planning and a sense of fiscal responsibility, the Park County Commissioners are returning funds to the state that were unused after a landfill project was completed in 2016.
Last month, Commissioners sent a letter to the Wyoming State Loan and Investment Board, relinquishing almost $1.5 million dollars left over from a larger amount that had been allocated to the County to close the Meeteetse, Clark and Powell landfills.
Commissioner Jake Fulkerson says that this is an example of how the Park County Commissioners try to make fiscally responsible decisions in all situations.
The original loan that was awarded to the County was $5.45 million dollars, almost $4 million of which was used for phased reclamation of the Meeteetse Landfill, that was closed in January of 2015; the Clark landfill, which was closed in November of 2014; and the closure of the Powell landfill, which was completed in January of 2016.
