On Tuesday, the Mayor’s Youth Council (MYC) planted trees at Alexander Avenue and E. 17th Street near Holliday Park. The MYC was assisted by City of Cheyenne staff with the project and will revisit the site in the spring for additional landscaping.
The City of Cheyenne would like to thank Laramie County voters for renewing the Fifth-Penny Sales Tax during Tuesday's General Election. The tax passed by a margin of 64 percent to 36 percent. The City will use 80 percent of the tax for street projects that includes basic street maintenance with plans to replace and widen the bridge over Crow Creek on Fifth Street, widen East Dell Range Boulevard between College Drive and Whitney Road, and realign Missile Drive at 19th Street with a new bridge over the creek and a pedestrian corridor. The tax will also help Cheyenne Fire Rescue and the Cheyenne Police Department purchase trucks and vehicles and other equipment.
Last night, incumbents Scott Roybal (Ward 1) and Dr. Mark Rinne (Ward 2) were reelected to the Cheyenne City Council. Ken Esquibel was voted in to represent Ward 3. This will be Dr. Rinne's sixth term and Roybal's third. Esquibel replaces outgoing councilman, Richard Johnson in Ward 3. Roybal, Rinne, and Esquibel will be sworn-in in January to serve a four-year term.
From spooky and scary to funny and creative, City of Cheyenne employees were more than happy to don their Halloween attire this morning in the Municipal Building. Yes, some costumes are scarier than others but we’re still open for business so don’t be frightened if you need to stop by! Here’s to a safe, warm, and festive Halloween for all!
