The Johnson County Commissioners held their regular meeting in Kaycee on Tuesday, and the question of where to house the newly-elected County Attorney has been answered. Aaron Palmer has the story.

Kenneth DeCock will be housed in the old North Wyoming Insurance building at the corner of Angus and Main Streets in Buffalo, according to County Commissioner Smokey Wildeman.

Wildeman also said the Commission gave the okay to look into getting the office furnished and set up with the necessary office machines.

Also at the Commission meeting Tuesday, the Wilderness Association gave a status update on their push to get the Rock Creek area designated as wilderness.

Trish Ullery of the Bighorn Mountain Counties Coalition gave a year-end wrap on the projects that have been worked on this year and what will be coming in the next year.

Scott Pehringer of Johnson County Road and Bridge gave the Commission an update on projects they are working on. Irigary Road has been graveled and had some dangerous curves removed, and they are continuing to progress toward rebuilding Trabing Road, a project which is expected to begin next spring.

In other Commission business, Planning and Zoning gave a short report as no new subdivisions are being planned at this time. They continue to work on the county zoning regulations.
