Simonton Says... B y S h e l l e y s i m o n t o n , WA M E x e c u t i v e D i r e c t o r

It’s been two months since the WAM Convention in Cody and it feels like it’s been 10 minutes. The summer days are longer, and yet somehow, go faster than the other days of the year. I hope you have made the most out of this summer! WAM’s Strategic Plan tells us that our three focus areas are: Legislative/Advocacy, Education/ Training, and Outreach/Communications. While we have been working over the summer on each area, I will address our efforts towards Legislative/Advocacy in the past couple of months. In June, we formed an ad hoc committee titled the Municipal Finance Task Force (Task Force). Our intent with forming this critical working group was to be proactive with the Legislature relative to funding issues facing municipalities. Members of the Task Force included: Myself, Rick Kaysen (Legislative Leadership Committee Chair), and Scott Badley (WAM Legislative Manager) as sub-committee facilitators. Three sub-committees included Andi Summerville (Region 1 – Laramie Council Member), Jim Harmon (Region 2 - Sheridan Treasurer), Barry Cook (Region 4 - Cody City Manager), V.H. McDonald (Region 5 - Casper City Manager), Bob McLaurin (Region 5 – Jackson City Manager), Reed Clevenger (Region 6 – Green River City Administrator), Charri Lara (WAMCAT Representative – Lander Treasurer), Janine Jordan (Laramie City Manager), Lois Huff (Cheyenne Treasurer), and Kelley Millar (Upton Deputy Clerk). These volunteers have done an incredible amount of work this summer on behalf of all WAM members. If you see them, please extend a warm appreciation for their dedication to Wyoming cities and towns. The committee had a short time to work and some very lofty goals: 1. Review current municipal funding formula from the 2016 legislative session, and offer recommendations

2. Review all sources of revenue available to

municipalities in the state including • fees (such as building & development permit fees), including research on liquor licenses, • taxes (such as the optional sales taxes), and • other sources of revenue (state, federal) 3. Learn from other states their funding mechanisms for municipalities 4. Discuss and explore alternatives and opportunities for municipal revenue generation 5. Review mandated programs and project costs 6. Discuss and review cost efficiency opportunities 7. Produce a final report 8. Distribute final report to WAM Board of Directors, all WAM Regions, WCCA, the Joint Revenue Committee in September, the Joint Appropriations Committee in October, and newly elected officials in cities and towns, as well as all legislators after the general election. The Joint Revenue Committee will meet in Buffalo September 22 and 23, and the Joint Appropriations Committee meeting

simo n to n S ays co n ti n u e d. . .

in Casper, October 24. We will distribute the report to Revenue Committee members prior to their meeting, but currently we are not scheduled to present the findings. We will present the report to the Joint Appropriations Committee in October. I encourage city and town officials to attend these meetings. Having your presence in the meetings with your legislators means we are unified, as well as it validates comments made by WAM on your behalf. We have also been on the road this summer. We have attended the Joint Appropriations Committee, the Special Districts Task Force, the Joint Minerals Committee, the Digital Information Privacy Task Force, and Joint Travel, Recreation and Wildlife since June. It is important that we are always building the relationship between municipal government and the state government and the legislative branch. As the Governor has said, “Decisions get made in Cheyenne and executed in the communities.” WAM will work with its six regions to host Legislative Candidate Panels prior to the General Election. This will be a time to hear

from candidates on their knowledge of local government, to ask questions, and to share ideas and concerns. After November, WAM will work again with the regions to put together meetings with legislators prior to the upcoming 2017 General Session. Changing subjects here, on behalf of the state and everyone in it, and everyone visiting it, WAUPUN, WI THANK YOU to all the local officials who have dealt with wildfires in and around your communities this summer. I hear stories of Mayor’s negotiating water rates with the Federal Government, others making room in city parks for fire fighters, and just dealing with the impacts of personnel, policy and smoke. THANK YOU. I hope your summer has found you in Wyoming’s mountains, near a trout stream, around a campfire, seeing a shooting star, reaping the benefits of a garden, laughing with a friend, driving past fields of wildflowers, or just reading a great book. We are blessed to live in this special, wild, beautiful place. Thank you all for the work you do to keep it that way. WAUPUN, WI

CyberSecurity Guidelines for Local Government


Recent legislation requires the State’s Department of Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) to develop guidelines for local government’s data. The ETS hosted open discussion meetings asking for feedback regarding the new program earlier this summer. WAM will attend the Digital Privacy Task Force (DPTF) meeting in Laramie on September 26-27, 2016. WAM is asking for its members to look at the provided guidelines on the ETS’s Website at Please email Katie at for a copy of Enrolled Act NO. 18. WAM believes that this guidance could be a good starting point for both large and small municipalities, but has concerns about this policy being made mandatory. Please, take some time to understand these guidelines and provide your feedback to the WAM Office. Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, the term security implies cybersecurity. WAM Connection August 2016


Increasing Wyoming’s Prosperity One Story at a Time B y R o n g u l l b e r g , W y b u s i n e ss C o u n c i l C o m m u n i c at i o n s d i r e c t o r

Business and community development successes and opportunities abound throughout Wyoming. As a result, Wyoming communities have great stories to tell. Storytelling is such a critical component of the Wyoming Business Council’s strategy to increase Wyoming’s prosperity, we created a communications plan. Targeted audiences include, but are not limited to, national site selectors, small business owners, tech startup entrepreneurs, local and state government officials, the media, local economic development professionals, Business Council partners, private investors and the general public. 8

WAM Connection August 2016

More tools are available than ever to inexpensively and effectively produce, distribute and quantify economic development stories. Stories now can be told in 900 words or 140 characters. As a two-minute infrastructure project “how-they-did- it” video or a groundbreaking ceremony photo gallery. They can be written, edited, refined and completed over weeks or posted immediately from remote locations via smartphones. The Business Council’s adopted digital storytelling plan is designed to not only share the important economic development stories around Wyoming that aren’t being told, but to assist independent media with stories and photos/videos that can be published as is or used as inspiration for original content. On both fronts, the results have been positive this past year. The agency’s four communications plan strategies include: Establish a Clear, Unified Message Never before has storytelling data been as accessible thanks to website/social media analytics. Did the e-newsletter story link drive traffic to the Business Council website, as intended? Did the local economic development organization share the groundbreaking ceremony video on Facebook? The answers are in the numbers. Communications equipment for public safety.

The home page will be more intuitive for our disparate audiences – site selectors, small business owners, agency partners, municipalities, the general public, media, etc. The page will be less cluttered and focus on three themes – business development, community development and relocation assistance – which will allow users to get where they need to go with one to two clicks. The home page will also be more vibrant, featuring rotating storytelling links with big photos, a link to the available business properties/ community profiles pages and live social media feeds. The main navigation tabs will have drop-down menus that describe user needs, such as “business financing,” rather than government agency program titles. On the social media front, when the Business Council increased its focus on Facebook in March 2015, we had approximately 6,200 followers. We established a practice of posting at least two items daily. We were surprised to find in the first several months that audience engagement on Facebook posts – likes, shares, comments – grew more rapidly than followers. Eventually, though, that engagement reached critical mass and the number of followers grew substantially. We surpassed 7,000 followers in May 2016. As of this writing, we are less than 60 from hitting the 8,000 mark. We look forward to seeing where the storytelling data take us in the coming months and years. Please contact me with with story ideas at 307777- 2833 or About the Wyoming Business Council. Our mission is to increase Wyoming’s prosperity. We envision a Wyoming where industries are strong, diverse and expanding. Small business is a big deal. Communities have the highest quality of life.

Motorcycle Safety Wyoming is home to many motorcycle enthusiasts and, even though the riding season is short, motorcyclists are 85% more likely to be injured or killed in a crash. While a common assumption may be that the majority of motorcycle crashes are Sturgis related, an average of 53% occur in urban locations throughout the state. Community leaders can have a great impact on motorcycle crashes statewide through community involvement efforts. What is your community doing to raise awareness of motorcycle safety?

Motorcycle Crashes & Percent Injury (%)* 2010-2015

*Injury is classified as fatal, incapacitating, non-incapacitating, or possible injury as specified by the Investigating Officer on the crash report form.
