GILLETTE, Wyo. — Campbell County will be receiving more than $2.6 million in Business Ready Community grant funds for a sewer project at the Pronghorn Industrial Complex.
The grant was approved by the State Loan and Investment Board at its April 6 meeting. The request was one of two presented by the Wyoming Business Council, a news release states.
Campbell County’s funds, totaling $2,669,450, will aid the construction of the sewer system build-out of 160 acres of the Pronghorn Industrial Complex.
The board also approved a $600,000 Business Committed grant for the Casper/Natrona County Economic Development Joint Powers Board to acquire a manufacturing plant to allow for Phoslock Environmental Technologies to relocate out of China with intentions of exporting Wyoming-made products within the United States and across the globe, the release stated.
A project submitted by the Town of Sundance was previously scheduled to go before the board at this time; however, the town withdrew its application prior to the meeting.
The SLIB considered these projects after the Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors recommended similar funding at its virtual Feb. 22 quarterly meeting.
