CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Top Wyoming officials plan to meet in Cheyenne on Wednesday to consider whether to hire a project manager to oversee the $300-million renovation of the state Capitol.

Gov. Matt Mead and Wyoming legislative leaders are meeting as the Capitol Building Restoration Oversight Group.

Mead and several lawmakers expressed concern at a meeting earlier this month after they heard from representatives of the project architect and contractor that working drawings for the project won’t be substantially completed until this fall. That schedule marks a two-month delay over what officials had promised in June.

Some state workers already have moved out of the Capitol in anticipation of the start of the renovation.

Sen. Tony Ross, a Cheyenne Republican, said Tuesday he couldn’t identify any candidate for the project manager position in advance.
