One-Cent Surveys Mailed With Casper Water Bills
City of Casper officials are asking residents about how they should spend future one-cent funds if voters decide to renew the sales tax again next November.
Officials with the city manager’s office in Casper say they’re trying to put together a list of citizen-requested projects that could be funded if voters pass the tax through December 2018.
Casper mayor Kenyne Schlager says one-cent funds have recently been used to improve community safety and quality of life.
“That money is essential to keep our community safe so the fire response times are quick, and we need to invest in our roads so that we have excellent roads to travel on,” Schlager said. “Without that one-cent, I really feel like our city would crumble.”
Assistant city manager Fleur Tremel says city officials sent out one-cent surveys with November water bills. Additional surveys are available at Casper City Hall, 200 N. David St., and at the Natrona County Clerk’s Office, 200 N. Center St.
Tremel says all city service vehicles have been paid for through the one-cent tax. Several community projects have also been funded through one-cent, including facility updates at the Casper Boys and Girls Club and at the Field of Dreams baseball complex.
Tremel says an online survey form will be available by the end of November.
