The State of Wyoming has awarded all of the $38.7 Million it received for clean water and drinking water projects as part of the Federal Stimulus Package. However, many of the funded projects are coming in under engineering estimates. That means excess funds may be returned to the state for redistribution. Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey was in Cheyenne to meet with state officials about the Sugarland Water Project.
Sheridan’s project is second in line behind a project in Laramie. There is no telling when the funds could become available but the state hopes to have the money available by January 15th.
The State approved a $1.3 Million grant to cover 75% of the estimated project costs for the Sugarland water main replacements.
