Cheyenne BOPU Formally Opens New Building

The Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on their new 27,000 square foot facility at 2416 Snyder on Saturday morning. BOPU Director Tim Wilson says the facility is much larger than the former BOPU offices at 2100 Pioneer Avenue, which measured only about 5000 square feet. Wilson says the increased space  allowed the BOPU to move it’s engineering offices, which previously had been housed in  seperate building, to be located with the administrative offices. Wilson says he thinks BOPU customers will appreciate the brand new building as well, which has actually been operational since June.

Wilson and Mayor Rick Kaysen both said they were also pleased the project came in well under the estimated price of $6.9 Million, with the final price tag of only $5.2 Million. Kaysen says the city is trying to sell the former BOPU building on Pioneer, which has been appraised at $545,000.. Kaysen says the city will soon conduct a request for proposals to see if anyone is interested in buying the facility.
