Game And Fish Discusses Housing

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission this week gave direction on Jackson employee housing during their meeting in Riverton. As long-time Game and Fish employees retire the commissioners determined the Department is forced to recognize the cost of living in Jackson is a barrier to recruiting new employees. Taxes on commission-owned buildings, like the Jackson regional office, also continues to increase. The commission discussed options that ranged from purchasing new housing, to building, to relocating the Game and Fish Jackson regional office duties to the Game and Fish Pinedale regional office. Ultimately, the commission voted for Game and Fish staff to return to the commission with a proposal to address the issue at a future meeting.
