The Big Horn Mountain Coalition made the decision to eliminate the Executive Director position for this current fiscal year. The position was held by Trish Ullery-Whitaker. Sheridan County Commissioner and Coalition President Mike Nickel explains why the decision was made to do away with the position.
Nickel said that for budget reasons several contributors to the Coalition decided to lower or do away with their contributions altogether, which also played a big role in eliminating the executive director position. The Big Horn Mountain Coalition is an economic development district comprised of Big Horn, Johnson, Washakie and Sheridan Counties. The Coalition works to enhance economic activities and provide leadership, coordination and cooperation between local, state and federal entities.
