BDA Gets Backing of City Council, Jo Co Commission


The Buffalo Downtown Association was seeking backing of both the Buffalo City Council and the Johnson County Commission at their meetings last week.

Marie Verger, Executive Director of the BDA, spoke to both entities and asked for their approval and backing in writing, which she could then send on to the State of Wyoming to help in their application for the Main Street Program.

By becoming a Main Street Program, the BDA would then become qualified to receive grants, training, educational help and access to many other amenities through the State of Wyoming and the Federal Government.

Verger explained more to the county commissioners.

Later that afternoon, Verger also gave a presentation to the Buffalo City Council, explaining much of the same things to the council.

Both entities voted to back the efforts of the BDA, and passed Resolutions saying as much.

Verger also told the council that the Carousel Committee is working on a number of different ideas and plans, with a February deadline to present their findings and decisions to the BDA and then to the city council.
