January 10, 2019

Pine Bluffs Mayor Alan Curtis will serve as the town’s representative on a cooperative for rural municipal power providers.

He was confirmed during the town’s regularly scheduled council meeting held Monday night.

Curtis will replace former representative Bill Cushing.

The mayor said it was his opinion that a member of the town’s governing body should serve on the board.

Curtis thanked Cushing for his service representing Pine Bluffs.

According to its website, the Wyoming Municipal Power Agency is the wholesale electric provider for eight public power communities in Wyoming.

Those include Cody, Powell, Lusk, Lingle, Guernsey Fort Laramie, Wheatland and Pine Bluffs as full members.

WMPA’s power generation capacity comes from its ownership share of the Missouri Basin Power Project and Dry Fork station located north of Gillette in Campbell County.

Pine Bluffs Treasurer Kim Patterson also told council members that Pine Bluffs Public Works Director Jerry Lamb will be resigning and taking a job with the City of Cheyenne.

Patterson said the position should be advertised across a large area due to qualified applicants needing extensive experience in computer technology.

The next council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, January 22.
