GEM 50th anniversary recognized, SCWEMS amendment approved


After discussion with county commissioner Sue Jones the Riverside town council approved the South Central Wyoming Emergency Medical Service Joint Powers Board joint powers agreement (JPA) as written at their Nov. 12 meeting.

Even in light of the town of Medicine Bow rejecting the JPA amendment Riverside decided to add their approval to that of Carbon County, Saratoga, Hanna. Encampment approved the amendment later in the evening and the town of Elk Mountain approved it at a special meeting on Monday.

Christy Smith and Irene Archibald of the Grand Encampment Museum presented a resolution in support of the 50th anniversary of the museum to the council. The resolution was passed and signed unanimously by the council. The museum will open a time capsule from the cornerstone of the museum in 2016 as part of the 50th anniversary celebration along with other events.

Riverside is discharging their wastewater lagoons but are having to fine tune the discharge to accommodate the biodomes. The regular discharge rate had started to expose some of the recently installed biodomes.

The town is going to invite experienced heavy equipment operators to assess the erosion at the boat ramp access road. There are large rocks in the way of excavating a drainage system with readily available equipment.

The council also approved Resolution 2015-4 to adopt the Carbon County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The next regular meeting of the Riverside town council is at 6 p.m. on Dec. 10.
