The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors will consider one Business Ready Community (BRC) funding request during its  meeting today in the Taggarts Room at the Holiday Inn Riverton, 900 E. Sunset Dr.

The board was hosted by Riverton’s Economic Development Organization, IDEA, Inc., Wednesday afternoon at Central Wyoming College where college administration, staff and elected trustees had a chance to mingle with the visitors. CWC President Dr. Brad Tyndall also took the opportunity to talk about the college’s Rocky Mountain Complex for Ag and Equine Science and opportunities to grow the local economy.

The single request up for action today is from the City of Sundance for $484,000 grant to develop a central park on the former Crook County School District Administration building site located adjacent to the Old Stoney building in Sundance.

The Business Council Board and staff will also continue discussing recent strategic planning efforts and review next steps, and the Board is slated to hear updates on the Business Resource Network, Innovation Centers and the Beef Study Request for Proposal. The Board will consider and take action on staff recommendations for several internal initiatives, as well as amendments to the Wyoming Broadband Enhancement Plan and Administrative Rules recommended by the Broadband Advisory Council.
