Johnson County Commission Notes From Meeting

The Johnson County Commission had a number of small items discussed and acted on during their last meeting.

The commission approved the chair to sign the annual contract with the State of Wyoming for the Public Health Prevention and Preparedness grant. The amount was for $63,905.

Kaycee Mayor Tommy Knapp had submitted a request to the commissioners for a donation of $1,000 to help support the Kaycee Centennial Celebrations this summer.
The opinion of Deputy County Attorney Barry Crago was that Governmental Agencies could not “donate” public funds for such reasons but said he will look into if and how the commission could legally support civic celebrations monetarily.

The commissioners denied a request from the city to apply excess county One-Percent funds to purchasing lights at the new Sports Fields Complex.
Approval for a letter to be drafted and sent back to the city saying the county was not involved in the original decision to remove the lights and other amenities from the bid contract and that the county has no excess One-Percent funds to pay for the lights at the complex.

County Clerk Vicki Edelman reported that the county's rates for employee health insurance will not be increasing this year.

Finally, the commission approved moving their regular meeting from Tuesday, July 16th to Monday, July 15th to keep within State Statute requirements to adopt the budget for the next fiscal year on or before July 15th.
