    The Fremont County Boundary Board annual meeting was held with Travis Becker re-elected as Chairman and Tara Berg re-elected as Secretary for 2020.

    Public Health Nurse Supervisor Becky Parkins shared her offices’ monthly update with the commissioners. The flu is widespread across Wyoming and there is currently no flu vaccine left at either of the public health offices in Lander and Riverton. She did contact a few other local clinics and they still have a few doses of the flu vaccine available; she did not share which clinics those were during the meeting. If you are sick, you are encouraged to stay home.


    During Becky’s monthly update, Fremont County Prevention Program (FCPP) Community Prevention Specialist Tauna Groomsmith also shared updates. Recently, FCPP in partnership with the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office implemented a new detection K-9 and handler. The previous K-9 passed away and their handler retired. Tauna shared they are now working in the community and their first time out sniffing for drugs was successful. The Fremont County Prevention Program website is also now up and running.

    HD 33 Representative Andi Clifford spoke at the commissioners’ meeting as well. Andi and the commissioners made a plan to be in contact about bills that could impact Fremont County as she heads into the 2020 Legislature meetings.
