Fremont County Commission

(Lander, Wyo.) – On Tuesday, the Fremont County Commission offered the long-empty Fremont County Ambulance Director position Texas man Joseph Zillmer.

The vote was 4-1, with Commission Vice Chairman Keja Whiteman being the lone no vote.

Interim Director Todd Smith said in an interview that he’s met Zillmer and thought he was very knowledgeable. Smith said whoever takes the position will have to keep the department moving in a forward direction.

Commission secretary Becky Enos said on Thursday that salary negotiations are on-going, and Zillmer has not yet formally accepted the offer. The matter might come back before the commission at its next meeting.
