State Asked To Take Over Territorial Prison

Laramie, Wy – Despite several years of trying to run it themselves, a private organization will hand over management of the Wyoming Territorial Park in Laramie to the state. A proposal that includes a state partnership will go to a legislative committee next week. The idea is that it will ensure permanent state financial support. The plan has the state handling employees and most maintenance costs, but the local nonprofit corperation would continue offering community programs.
The proposed partnership will be presented to the legislature's Travel, Recreation and Wildlife committee next week.
