Town Offer Goes To Washington

January 31, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, Town of Jackson No Comments

The fate of an application by the Town of Jackson to directly purchase the administrative land being sold by the Bridger Teton national Forest on north Cache Street is now in the hands of the national office in Washington DC.  Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the town filed its letter proposing the purchase last week, and that proposal now must be evaluated to determine if it satisfies the requirements of the Forest Service Facilities Realignment and Enhancement Act. Cernicek says if that office finds everything in order, they will return the matter to the Forest Supervisor’s office to have a decision signed, negotiate any deficiencies or return the matter to competitive bid.  Cernicek says that part of the process should be completed between May and June and the entire deal could then be concluded by the end of the year. Jackson Mayor Mark Barron explains the town sees the property as being advantageous for a variety of uses including a transit facility, an additional east-west route for north Jackson or general public use.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
