Municipal Finance Reports

Municipal Leaders are stepping up to help provide solutions to Wyoming’s revenue shortfall. WAM, in concert with financial experts, have evaluated how Wyoming’s municipal finance framework compares to neighboring states and states with similar economics.  In the following reports, WAM identifies how Wyoming’s municipalities operate and provides reasonable recommendations for the Legislature to consider.  WAM acknowledges that funding for Local Government will only become more challenging in the coming years, and prepared these reports as a proactive resource to initiate change that will collaboratively manage Wyoming through these difficult times.


We’ve Got It Covered

The Wyoming Association of Municipalities Joint Powers Insurance Coverage (WAM-JPIC) was formed in 1985.   This self-insured pool of members gives municipalities and joint powers boards the opportunity to control the cost of their health insurance by helping to keep claims costs low.  The claims are managed through a reputable and competitive third-party administrator.  WAM-JPIC coverage includes preventive care, hospitalization, prescriptions, vision, dental, and life insurance.  The WAM-JPIC Insurance program is governed by a joint powers board.
