Water main project has caused headaches, town schedules gripe session

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Water main work on the Snow King Estates on Snow King Drive has become a bit of a bear on the town’s end as public works has encountered tough sledding with the work there. For residents, many have reached the limit of their patience and reached out to town hall for answers.

Mayor Pete Muldoon has responded, personally, on behalf of the town to schedule a special meeting June 19 from 10-11am at Jackson Town Hall in order for town to explain what it is they are doing, and the public can use the opportunity to ask questions or, as Muldoon put it, “yell at the mayor.”
