Last week the mayors from the “big three” municipalities in Northeast Wyoming, Dave Kinski from Sheridan, Tom Murphy from Gillette, and Randy Dyess from Buffalo met with Wyoming Governor Matt Mead to discuss a number of topics with him, all pertaining to the well-being of this corner of the state.
Mayor Dyess said the Governor wanted to discuss the Wyoming Association of Municipalities (WAM).
The Governor wanted to know how the organization was going to work together to move itself into the future and to remain a viable entity within the state.
Mayor Dyess explains further.
Mayor Dyess also said they discussed the NEWY Congressional Staffers Tour which is coming up in the early part of August.
The tour will feature different towns in the Northeast part of the state highlighting different aspects of the area's economy ranging from tourism to energy production.
Also discussed was the recent attacks on coal, the possibility of exporting Powder River coal to Asian markets through west coast ports and how that might get accomplished.
We will have more on NEWY and the coal issue in upcoming stories later this week.
