The City of Kemmerer has been approved to receive a $92,850 General Operating grant from the Kemmerer Foundation Endowment Fund of the Wyoming Community Foundation (WYCF).

WYCF is governed by a statewide board of directors that grants funds to organizations across Wyoming that are making an impact in their communities.

• $10,250 for five 2016 golf carts

• $30,000 for greens mower and a large area rough mower

If the City of Kemmerer and the Kemmerer Recreation Department choose to use the grant funds on projects not included in the application, they must receive approval from the Wyoming Community Foundation.
