More than a dozen nonprofit organizations appealed to the Rawlins City Council this week for funding for the upcoming fiscal year. There were lots of tears, as the executive directors of the entities that serve Carbon County’s most vulnerable populations recounted a year beset with challenges and loss. Cali O’Hare was there and filed this report.
