Alpine seeks grant for wastewater treatment

ALPINE, Wyo. — The State Loan and Investment Board (SLIB) is will consider two Business Ready Community (BRC) grant requests October 3.

The Town of Alpine is in the running for $2,300,370. The grant would fund a modular wastewater pretreatment system and sludge handling facility at the town’s wastewater treatment plant.

The system will be able to accommodate current and future organic waste from Melvin Brewery and any future commercial and industrial developments.

Casper is also requesting a $500,000 grant to restore 13.5 miles of the North Platte River and its banks.

Business Council staff review each application, conduct site visits, or conference calls in the case of planning grants, and make presentations to a board subcommittee before making final recommendations to the full board.

The Wyoming Business Council administers the Business Ready Community grant and loan program, which provides financing for publicly owned infrastructure that serves the needs of businesses and promotes economic development within Wyoming communities.

The Business Council board is required by statute to forward BRC grant and loan recommendations to the State Loan and Investment Board (SLIB) for final approval. The SLIB is comprised of the five statewide elected officials: the governor, secretary of state, state auditor, state treasurer and state superintendent of public instruction.
