Teton County Seeks Delegation Help on Court House

Jackson, WY

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Teton County is seeking help from Wyoming’s congressional delegation to recover land in downtown Jackson that the county gave the federal government for a now-unwanted courthouse.

The county gave the federal General Services Administration 0.14 acres in 1986 to build the Clifford Hansen Federal Courthouse.

The agency now wants to dispose of the property, which has been used only part time by a U.S. District Court.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/1cqr5mC ) that federal rules prohibit it from giving the land back without an act of Congress.

Two county commissioners met recently with staffers of Sens. Mike Enzi and John Barrasso and Rep. Cynthia Lummis about the matter.

Commissioner Ben Ellis says he’s optimistic but no promises were made and he doesn’t expect results anytime soon.
