At their last meeting, the Buffalo City Council received a brief presentation from Sydney Rowe and Thom Gabrukiewicz with the Prevention Management Organization of Wyoming, outlining the organizations' accomplishments over the last 16 months. They asked that the report be put into the public record.
Arts Along The Bighorns (AAB) awarded the contract for the feasibility study to the Community Investment Group of Buffalo, who will contract with the city, who is the sponsor for the grant.
The Feasibility Study will look into the development of the Cowboy Carousel Center and allow the AAB to proceed with fund-raising, planning and execution. The AAB wants to develop the site to showcase the historic Cowboy Carousel and operate a venue for art education programs, cultural and community events, meetings, seminars and social gatherings, according to the Request For Proposal (RFP) on the project.
The $5,000 local match for the grant was submitted by the AAB.
Lisa Mueller, with Community Investment Group, explains what her company will be doing on the project.
The city council approved Mayor Randy Dyess to sign the agreement.
The council passed Resolution No. 1376, which changed the city's subdivision fee schedule, adding the $150 fee for the new Compliance Plat.
They also passed Resolution No. 1370 on first reading, re-installing the words “restaurant,” “hotel,” and “motel” back into the B-1 Zoning Ordinances, which were inadvertently removed.
