Civic Leaders Discuss Common Issues

September 30, 2013 State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
WACO meeting

Elected officials from the various towns and counties around the state meet Thursday in Lander to discuss common concerns and share ideas for solutions to those concerns.  Teton County Commission Chair Paul Vogelheim says this is an annual event, unlike the Wyoming County Commissioners Association which meets quarterly.  He says the umbrella organization, WACO (Wyoming Association of County Officials) provides an opportunity for those officials from throughout the state to come together and look at common issues and collaborate or otherwise learn from one another about ideas to better serve the citizens of the various communities. Vogelheim says among the topics was how to seek a more predictable and steady stream of civic funding than simply depending upon the rise and fall of the state economy to dictate what the state can provide.  He says other areas were particularly interested in the way Jackson Hole has been able to assure a robust air service.  He said the group spent some time talking about Jackson Hole Air and Kari Cooper provided a presentation on how Jackson Hole has been able to secure the partnerships with airlines. Vogelheim says the group also reviewed bills that are to be introduced in the state legislature in February.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
