Dayton Not Yet Spending New Captax Funds

The town of Dayton will use the last of its current capital facilities tax funds this spring, and may begin planning projects for the new capital facilities tax around June.

The new tax is the one approved by voters last year. Dayton's share of the revenues will be just over $1.9 million over the next eight years. Town Mayor Bob Wood said in the meantime, the town will probably use the last of the current tax revenues in crack-sealing and fixing up some of the town's streets.

He estimated a little over $100,000 in current captax revenues remain for that work. The town has already completed $1.75 million in repairs and improvements using revenues from the last capital facilities tax election. Wood said that money was spent for five projects. Those are:

Ultra-violate disinfection at the Dayton Water Treatment Plant, and chlorine disinfection control mandated by Wyoming's Department of Environmental quality. The town upgraded its sewer lines and repaired some of its storm drain lines, and fire hydrants were replaced and repaired as needed.

Approximately two miles of streets on the east side of town have been seal-coated. The town rotomilled and overlaid the south half of Bridge Street, West Fourth Street and East Fourth Street to Broadway. A culvert was replaced with a modular bridge over Smith Creek on River Road. Other work included sidewalk and gutter maintenance where needed and maintenance of the town parking lot.
