Kevin Koile – TownSquare Media

The town of Jackson plans to ask the state for help in covering the cost of a creeping landslide, that damaged and threatened several homes and businesses.

The town council will meet Monday, June 16th, to consider asking the Wyoming Business Council for a $250,000 “imminent threat” grant, to stabilize the hillside and protect infrastructure, that serve the neighborhood west of downtown Jackson.

Town staff also plan to apply to the state land and investment board for a grant.

A final amount hasn’t been settled on yet.

Assistant town manager Roxanne Robinson says that the request could be around $8 million.

A consulting engineer presented the town council with stabilization options for the slide that ranged in cost from $8 million to $30 million.
