Q.  Dump trucks have been dumping loads into an empty lot between 10th and 13th north of Beaufort. Is this a City of Laramie operation? If so, can you tell me what's going on?

A.  The property in question is owned by the City of Laramie. Our City Streets Division is currently dumping snow and ice that has been cleared from city streets. This property is sometimes used for other functions, such as storing equipment and supplies for projects in that area of town.

Spring Creek flooding concerns.

Posted on February 14, 2019 at 3:45 PM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  Spring Creek over the last few years has filled with sediment and plant growth. When this has occurred in the past there have been incidents of flooding in the residential areas along the creek. Are there plans to clear the creek so it will perform as it should in time of need as a flood control aqueduct?

A.  Due to new environmental restrictions, the City is no longer able to clean out the sediment in the Spring Creek channel as we have done in the past. Because of this, the City has investigated other solutions and will implement these alternatives as funding allows.
