Weed and Pest appointments

The commissioners will also reappoint three members to the Teton County Weed & Pest Control Districts. Mary Cernicek who represents the Town of Jackson, Kasey Mateosky, representing Hoback, and Lucas Turner of Moran will rejoin Wilson’s John Becker, and Lorin Wilson from Alta.

Worker Camp for WYDOT

The Teton County Commission is also poised to send a letter to the Wyoming Department of Transportation about their plan for a temporary worker camp. It would house employees  who will begin replacing the Snake River Bridge in the new year.

The commissioners will ask WYDOT to use a 150 foot setback from the Snake River. Teton County Parks & Recreation will work with WYDOT for future uses on the site.

They also want the camp to include landscaping and reduce its visual impact and to work with Teton County Public Works and the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality on wastewater management.

Teton County Skateboard Park Expansion

The Teton County Commission are also set to approve some major improvements to Jackson’s Skateboard Park.

They will be contracting with Oregon-based Dreamland Skateparks, LLC to design the Jackson Hole Skatepark Phase 3 expansion.

The improvements will include increased skating area with more flat skate surface, a mini-ramp, rails, stairs, and boxes. The expansion will allow more skateboarders to safely use the park at peak times.

The contract for design is 20000 dollars.
