State board to consider $1.26M grant for Greybull business park

(Greybull, Wyo.) - The State Loan and Investment Board will make final decisions on $8.8 million in Business Ready Community grant and loan requests at its 8 a.m. meeting June 16 in Cheyenne. The Wyoming Business Council (WBC) Board of Directors recommended full or partial funding of five project requests during its May 26 meeting in Rock Springs. The Business Council, the state’s economic development agency, administers the BRC program. Greybull has requested a $1,260,000 grant for road and sewer improvements to its 28.3-acre business park. According to the WBC, interest in the area is high. By early June, 11 of 15 available lots will be sold to five businesses expanding in the Bighorn Basin. Those expansions will add seven to 10 jobs in the community. This is the last remaining commercial open space within Greybull. During the May 26 meeting the WBC Board recommended funding $900,000. *Feature Photo: h/t PROcourthouselover via Flickr / Pitchengine Communities* #reboot #news
