Town of Jackson

The Teton County Board of County Commissioners will reconsider Monday its 3-2 vote against putting public dollars toward a rental assistance program that would have been administered by the nonprofit One22.

Commissioner Mark Newcomb, who joined Commissioners Greg Epstein and Mark Barron in voting against putting $50,000 of town and county funds toward the program, asked the Teton County Board of County Commissioners to reconsider the vote Dec. 7, a day after the board made its decision during a joint information meeting with the Jackson Town Council.
