The monthly Fremont County Association of Governments meeting for July took place Thursday in Shoshoni.
Prior to the nearly three-hour long meeting inside of Shoshoni’s Senior Center, Shoshoni Mayor Scott Peters invited attendees on a walking tour of downtown Shoshoni. Lander Mayor, Delbert McOmie, Hudson Mayor Mike Anderson, and Dubois Mayor Twila Blakeman all participated in the tour, as did Riverton City Administrator Tony Tolstedt.
The tour highlighted the block-long series of vacant buildings on Main Street, scheduled for demolition this year.
The block of vacant buildings feature a former appliance store and bar, which were the victim of a large fire in the 1970’s. Despite a couple of attempts several decades ago to re-inhabit the buildings, there hasn’t been an operational business on the east side of Main Street for roughly 40 years.
