Teton County Administration Building

A yearslong staffing shortage across Teton County departments is already slowing building schedules and has threatened to close the Rec Center one day a week.

Staffing came up when commissioners were asked Tuesday if they would lengthen some deadlines for planning and building staff, who say they are stretched too thin to meet current deadlines.

The term "crisis" usually means we are about to spend a lot of money without the usual oversight. County government should shrink it's services and workforce, and it should put a priority on creating housing for its vital employees on land it already owns.
