Republic Parking, LLC to manage downtown Casper parking garage
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper’s downtown parking garage will have new management.
Casper City Council members approved a proposed contract Tuesday giving management duties to Denver-based Republic Parking, LLC.
It will start managing the garage Sept. 1.
The garage is located south of Second Street between Wolcott and Center Streets.
The Casper Downtown Development Authority (DDA) currently manages the garage. It currently loses money on the property.
Though the city is taking management responsibilities away from the DDA, council members said it’s not because the the organization did anything wrong.
“We found someone else who really has a specialization in this and a lot of trial and error and a lot of learning on how to do it well and I think it will work better,” Councilman Charlie Powell, Ward II, said. “I think this is more of a vote of confidence in Republic.”
The contract expires June 30, 2024.
