     GREEN RIVER, Wyo. (AP) – The Green River City Council has voted
to make a bid to buy nearly 1,200 acres of Bureau of Land
Management land near the town.
     Mayor Hank Castillon said he hopes Green River will be able to
buy the land but it may not happen for a few years.
     Castillon told the Rock Springs Rocket-Miner that if the city
buys the land it could sell parcels for development.
     The city has not allocated any money for the land.
     The BLM land is west of Green River. Supporters of purchasing
the land say the town is landlocked and needs room to grow and
provide space for commercial development.
