KEMMERER — Brian Muir wears multiple hats as the city administrator for Kemmerer, and one of those is raising funds for town projects. Sometimes that requires calls to the State Loan and Investment Board or applications for grant funding.
Currently, Muir is hoping to raise money through a sixth-penny tax, but first it must get on next year’s ballot. The tax would allow towns in Lincoln County to cooperate with each other, using funding raised from a voluntary sales tax for specific projects.
