ROCK SPRINGS, Wyoming — The Rock Springs City Council is being asked to increase its subsidy for Sky West Airlines service to Salt Lake City.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reported Wednesday ( ) the council will consider the request from the Rock Springs/Sweetwater County Airport on July 15.

Officials were uncertain about how much the city would be asked to contribute.

Sigsbee Duck, a member of the airport board, said the Salt Lake City service will be reduced to one flight daily on Sept. 3 and is in danger of being canceled.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation provides some funding for the service, and Sweetwater County, Rock Springs and Green River also contribute.

However, Green River officials have said they had to put their 2014-15 contribution on hold because of budget constraints.
