In an update to a story Bigfoot 99 has been following, the Rawlins City Council voted 4-3 against the rezone required for the Bureau of Land Management to construct new crew quarters and, eventually, a wildland fire station on property it owns on the south side of the municipality.

The vote failed the night before the BLM’s funding deadline, meaning not only has the project been scrapped, but the federal funding for it will be transferred to another field office in Wyoming. Cali O’Hare has the latest.
