Fremont County Coroner Mark Stratmoen notified County 10 Thursday morning that the new morgue cooler and holding facility has been completed and is ready for use. Below is the release he sent:
The new Riverton area morgue cooler and holding facility has been completed and installed. It will be open for inspection by the public and the media on Friday, September 21st, 2018, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM, at the Emergency Management building, located at the Fremont County Vehicle Maintenance and County Roads yard on Airport Road in Riverton.
We wish to thank County Buildings Supervisor JR Oakley and his staff for the fine work they have done constructing this facility, and the County Commission for approving the project. This facility should serve the needs of Fremont County for many years to come. After Friday, when operational and as part of its function, this will be considered a secure facility and not open to the public while in use.
