GREEN RIVER, Wyo. (AP) - The city of Green River plans to return $1 million in state funding it got to renovate an historic Union Pacific train depot.

Green River officials say they’re unable to come up with a $2 million dollar match for the $1 million grant through the Wyoming Business Council.

The Business Council recently told city officials it wouldn’t give them a two-year extension to come up with the matching funds. On Tuesday, the Green River City Council decided to return the money.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1uAQ9OZ ) the Business Council already had given the city a one-year extension for raising the $2 million.

City officials say they hope sales tax revenues improve to put the city in a better position to renovate the building in the future.
