Transportation superintendent Billy Meeks spoke about cattle guard and culvert concerns.
According to Meeks, prices of steel have been on the rise and overall availability is decreasing, which might necessitate waiting until the third quarter to purchase some of the supplies needed in hopes of finding less-expensive steel materials.
Rounding out the meeting was a report from Treatment Courts Director Melinda Cox and Prevention Program Coordinator Tauna Groomsmith, who were back this week to talk about their Drug Free Communities project. The undertaking would see the coalition address the rising issues of drug use in the community, with focus being on Fremont County youth.
Pavillion, Lander, and Riverton school districts have all reached out in support of the project, and as of today the Commissioners have approved their grant proposal.
