SCWEMS meets with towns' officials


February 7, 2018

South Central Wyoming Emergency Medical Services (SCWEMS) Board Chairman Jeb Steward had a meeting with local municipality elected officials at 6 p.m. on Jan. 31 to get a consensus on proposed second amendment changes to the SCWEMS joint powers agreement.

The towns of Encampment, Riverside, Saratoga, Elk Mountain, Hanna and Medicine Bow had representatives who listened to Steward present his proposal on the language change on Section One of the joint powers agreement.

An additional amendment in section one was placed after section 1.03 making it 1.04.

The consensus of the municipalities was to have the amendment read “The employees of South Central Wyoming Emergency Medical Services Joint Powers Board shall have an ex-officio non-voting member representing them on the JPB. This member shall be selected by the employees.”

Section 1.10 was rewritten to read “Four voting members of the Joint Powers Board shall constitute a quorum for transaction of business. The vote of a majority of the voting members present at a meeting where a quorum is present shall determine the action or decision of the Joint Powers Board, except when a different vote is required by state law.”

Carbon County Attorney Ashley Mayfield attended the meeting and sat by Steward to advise on the language for the amendments. She explained the process and timeline it would take to amend the agreement to the municipality representative.

The next scheduled SCWEMS meeting will be 6 p.m. on Feb. 20 at Elk Mountain Fire Station.
