The City Council authorized staff to sign a letter committing $100,000 to the purchase of the Shoshone Water Rights. This would be in the budget for 2025.

“I just want everyone to realize how historic this Shoshone Water Rights Purchase is and how it can totally save the western slope in case something ever happened to Xcel or that power plant. So I’m glad they came in and I’m glad we’re partnering with them,” Councilor Clint Hostettler said in their closing comments for the meeting.
