Pinedale RV Dump Station grant request moves forward
Wyoming Business Council Business Ready Community funding request
December 9, 2018
The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors recommended four Business Ready Community (BRC) funding requests and approved six Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) applications during its Dec. 6 meeting in Laramie.
The Town of Pinedale put in a request for a $179,062 BRC Community Development Enhancement grant to construct a dump and water filling station for recreational vehicles, tour buses and industrial tank trucks. The location will be marketed to tour bus companies that travel through Pinedale on the way to Jackson and Yellowstone, increasing tourist traffic in Pinedale and spurring economic growth in the immediate area. Funds will also be used to add a power box near the American Legion to replace the need for generators at events such as the Green River Rendezvous, brew fest and other gatherings.
The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors recommended full funding for Pinedale's request.
The Business Council board's recommendations will now move to the State Loan and Investment Board (SLIB) for final approval at its 8 a.m. meeting on January 17, 2019.
