SUBJECT:
Council Consideration to Authorize the Mayor to Sign a Wyoming Department of Transportation Special Event Road Closure Application for Highway 51 from Garner Lake Road, East to the Border of the City Limits, on August 16, 2019, from 10:00 p.m. to 10:45 p.m., to Create a Safety Zone for the 2019 Pyrotechnics Guild International (PGI) Fireworks Display, Requested by Jeff Esposito, General Manager of the Cam-Plex.    
BACKGROUND:

The Cam-Plex has applied for permission from WYDOT to close Highway 51 from milepost 128.5 to 131.56 (Garner Lake Road to American Road). The City's portion of that closure would be from Garner Lake Road to the city limit border.

 

The Pyrotechnics Guild International wishes to launch a record-setting shell during their event in Gillette later this summer. The safety zone is so large it would require temporarily closing Highway 51 from Garner Lake Road to American Road. The request is for Friday, August 16, 2019 from 10 pm to 10:45 pm.

ACTUAL COST VS. BUDGET:
SUGGESTED MOTION:
I Move to Authorize the Mayor to Sign a Wyoming Department of Transportation Special Event Road Closure Application for Highway 51 from Garner Lake Road,  East to the Border of the City Limits, on August 16, 2019, from 10:00 p.m. to 10:45 p.m., to Create a Safety Zone for the 2019 Pyrotechnics Guild International (PGI) Fireworks Display, Requested by Jeff Esposito, General Manager of the Cam-Plex.
