Feds Award $8,000,000 For START Facility

September 6, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
START Bus

$8-million in federal funds have been granted to the town of Jackson for the completion of Phase 1 of the START Bus transit facility planned adjacent Karns Meadow in Jackson.  That money will be used along with the voter-approved special purpose excise tax for a facility to store START’s transit fleet indoors, house a wash bay for the busses and provide offices for START administrators.  The Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (or TIGER) program is a discretionary grant program under the U.S. Department of Transportation that provides a unique opportunity for investment in transportation projects that achieve critical national objectives. The USDOT received 568 applications requesting over $9 billion for TIGER V grants this year, far exceeding the $474 million set aside for the project.

  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
