Town and county officials will officially close out a board on Monday that was formed to build co-owned facilities in the nineties but has completed its purpose.
The Town of Jackson and Teton County formed a Joint Power Board in 1993, known as the Jackson/Teton County Public Facilities Joint Power Board. The Joint Power Board was formed to allow for the Joint Power Board to issue bonds to finance the land acquisition and construction of multiple government building projects, including the Courthouse, the Impound Lot, the Animal Shelter, the Recreation Center, the Recycling Center, the Sewage Treatment Plant, Bus Barn, and land acquisition. The bonds have all been fully paid off and all of the property titles have been transferred to either the Town of Jackson or Teton County. There is no longer any purpose for the existence of the Jackson/Teton County Public Facilities Joint Power Board.
