Jackson Gets Its Gas
The State Loan and Investment Board voted unanimously to OK the Town of Jackson’s application for a $767,000 grant for a CNG station to be located at Shervin’s Independent Oil. In reviewing the application, the Wyoming Business Council recommended the requested amount be approved as a loan rather than a grant. The board, however, opted to award Jackson the money as a grant.
The News&Guide reported Tuesday that two of the board members – state auditor Cynthia Cloud and state treasurer Mark Gordon – both stated they would vote for the CNG application. They were joined by Gov. Matt Mead, Secretary of State Max Maxfield, and Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill in giving the application a thumbs up.
