The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors recommended at its March 15 quarterly meeting in the Evanston Roundhouse a $50,000 grant to Uinta County to identify target industries for recruitment to Uinta and south Lincoln counties.
The Business Council board is required by statute to forward Business Ready Community (BRC) grant and loan program 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.
The SLIB will make a final decision on the BRC project request at its 8 a.m. meeting on April 12 in Cheyenne.
Board meeting materials are available for review at http://wyomingbusiness.org/boardbook.
