A resolution to accept and approve a Memorandum of Understanding with the Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce, in the amount of $27,651 dollars was approved. The Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce and the city of Rock Springs will participate in a unified county-wide economic development effort by diversifying and strengthening the economic base.

A request from the Finance Department for permission to apply for the National Endowment for the Arts Fiscal Year 2022 Our Town Grant, to purchase and install the Chinese Massacre Monument was approved.

The first reading of an Ordinance amending Article 3-5, entitled “Humane Control and Regulation of Animals” and creating section 3-546, entitled “Trap-Neuter-Return”, to control the community’s cat population also took place. The city of Rock Springs recognizes that cat populations can grow if they are not managed. The large amount of strays can hurt local ecosystems so the plan is to spay and neuter stray cats. This should stop the stray cat colonies from getting out of hand.
