Torrington, Wyo. (from Wyoming Business Council) January 12, 2020 — During the Wyoming Business Council’s Board of Directors meeting last week, five community development block grants were approved.

A total of $2.1 million was granted to Yoder, Gillette, Laramie, Dubois and Mills for projects that serve low to moderate income residents. $500,000 was given to the Town of Yoder to install water distribution on the south end of town and add municipal  hydrants at the end of each block to increase fire protection. Yoder currently has only one waterline that conveys water from the wells, and in most areas of town, including the school, water pressures and flows do not meet fire suppression standards.
