Monday brought a “changing of the guard” at the Teton County Commission with Commission Chairman Paul Vogelheim stepping down and Hank Phibbs again taking the lead as the board’s chairman. Vogelheim says it was a prolific year for the commissioners to set policy, but perhaps the most significant accomplishment was operating the county within a tight budget. He says the commission actually got the budget done before the beginning of the fiscal year which is the first time the county has ever done that. That budget, he adds was a balanced budget. Vogelheim says in addition to dealing with budget concerns, the commission was able to move the land development regulation process forward, examine Snake River management concerns, and the initiation of the Grove development by the Teton County Housing Authority. He says in the coming year, the commission will seek to move the comprehensive plan forward with a comment period in February for the land use regulations.
