Freudenthal Unveils School Plan

Cheyenne, Wy –
Ever since the state has taken over the funding of school buildings, gyms are being built smaller and projects like swimming pools have been denied. It has concerned community leaders who use school facilities for their residents. In an effort to find some middle ground, Governor Dave Freudenthal is proposing that local governments get funding to help pay for community centers, by providing financial help for those communities with a need for the development of community facilities.
Freudenthal is proposing a funding mechanism that could be administered by the business council or a similar organization.
