The City of Worland uses the “one cent” General Purpose Tax revenue to improve roads and alleys. The City of Worland has leveraged that revenue to secure grant funding from the State Lands Investment Board (SLIB) and has been awarded over $900,000* for improvements at:
- South 5th Street and Culbertson Avenue Improvements
- 15th and Big Horn Ave. intersection improvements
The City also used one cent money to crack seal and patch roads, apply protecting sealant to road surfaces, regrade and resurface failing roads, curb / gutter / double gutter replacements, alley apron replacements and pour new concrete alleys.
City council has affirmed that it intends to continue to focus future one cent tax revenue on road improvements.
