Hank Coe and Matt Teeters said Hill will have 30 minutes to give a verbal response during the panel’s meeting next week.

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — Campbell County commissioners have given their approval to a $1.7 million subsidy to keep SkyWest Airlines flying between Gillette and Salt Lake City. The county will provide about $579,000, with the state providing the rest. The Gillette News Record reports the subsidy helps to ensure SkyWest won’t lose money on the flights. The subsidy goes down if more passengers buy tickets.
