MILLS, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Town of Mills is now a city.

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon signed a proclamation Tuesday declaring Mills a “First-Class City.”

Mills gained its new “city” status because its population now exceeds 4,000 residents.

More residents means more tax dollars for Mills.

Mills Mayor Seth Coleman said becoming a “First-Class City” is a new point of pride. Though it won’t change much practically, it can also help the city move forward as it tries to develop

“It’s a recognition of what all of us work on here everyday,” Coleman said. “In Mills we recognize that oil and gas is our strenght economycally but that we need to do what we can to recruit other economic activity.”

He said Mills will still be officially called the “Town of Mills” for now.
