The loan was is- sued for the purpose of upgrading the town water system. With the lower interest rates available cur- renfly, it was found possible to refinance at 5.27% instead of the original 8.5O%. The refinancing plan was worked out by the Cheyenne investment baking firm of Kaiser and Com- pany. Todd Bishop, Assistant Vice President, met with the town offi- cials to work out the details. The Council decided to apply for money from the U.S. Department of JusUce Cops Universal hiring program. They will ask for the money to fund one policeman for a total of $36,839.37 to include sal- ary and benefits. The projected cost which was presented to the Council indicated that the De- partment of Justice would fund $25,000.00 for one year and the city would be responsible for $I 1,839.37. The appraisal carried out by Floyd Can" on the Wagaman Ready-Mix property was given to the Council. The property was appraised at $12,920. Carr appraised the clty's property that is being considered in a trade with Wagaman at $1,000 per acre. There are 20 acres in the city's property. Wagaman would get 12 acres of It and there is a possibility the county will buy the remaining 8 acres. If the proposals are agreed to by Wagaman and the County, a pub- lic hearing for the land trade and sale will be advertised. The high school band requested permission to sell food during the bike rally. The Council questioned whether or not it is a school func- tion.

The permit was issued with the provison that they sell beer on their side of the street only, primarily in front of their place of business. Mark Hughes.

'The Black Hills National Forest Revision Plan, is the first revision of any National Forest manage- ment plan. We are all watching to see the end result. What happens to the Black Hills National Forest will ultimately set the pace for ev- ery other National Forest in the nation," stated Vincent. "The problem we face is not easy. The agencies are under pressure from groups who have a completely different vision for the Hulett and Newcasfle Wyoming and the Libby, Montana. Their vision is one in which people are the intruders to the ecosystem. They believe that man is bad and a gate should be put up to keep man out. We must develop our vision of our area and articulate it as well as they do." Vincent ended his talk by saying that the world belongs to those who show up.
