Teton County is looking for a consultant to help determine and pursue alternative ownership or management options for federal property along the Snake and Gros Ventre river corridors.

The federal government decided to transfer several inaccessible parcels from Bureau of Land Management administration, but wants to ensure the land remains in public ownership and is available for recreation, public access, open space and wildlife habitat. Disposal by sale, exchange and other means are also options.

The selected consultant will make recommendations on a parcel-by-parcel basis and execute them on behalf of Teton County. The submission deadline is noon Feb. 28. The contract will be awarded March 17.

Interested parties can find more information about the project and submit their qualifications on the Public Purchase Website at https://www.publicpurchase.com/).
