New jail, tourism board discussed

by Cat Urbigkit and Bill Boender

At Tuesday's Sublette County Commission meeting, Rick Foley of Hogan and Associates told the commission that the drawings for the courthouse complex sent to the state fire marshal by architect Brad Waters didn't satisfy the agency.

Foley said that the changes incorporated into the complex project were not adequately documented on the drawings. The fire marshal's office representative requested new drawings with adequate documentation of the changes, Foley said.

Johnston pointed out that a few weeks ago when Foley submitted the time schedule that included Dec. 1 as the entry date for the new detention facility, he examined the schedule and questioned whether a glitch could wreck the whole thing.

Johnston questioned Tuesday, "Is this the glitch?"

Foley responded, "I think so."

In other business, the commission discussed the tourism board controversy, with Sublette County Commission Chairman Gordon Johnston stating, "My solution would be to fire them all."

That not being possible, the commission agreed to let the board run its course until it meets its inevitable end with the vote scheduled for November of 2004.

Bids for new sheriff's department vehicles were discussed and awarded. E & L Motors will provide Chevrolet Tahoes and McCurtain Motors of Rock Springs will provide Dodge Rams, at a total cost of some $575,000. Rather than selling or trading the old units, all will be sent to the Salt Lake City auto auction for disposal.
