Shoshoni Demolition Delayed
Written by Andrew-Rossi on August 20, 2018
The planned demolition of derelict buildings on Shoshoni’s Main Street has been put on hold.
The website County10.com reports that at last week’s Fremont County Solid Waste Disposal District Board meeting, Superintendent Andy Frey said the needed paperwork to proceed had not been completed within the needed time frame.
Frey told the board that they needed two full weeks for the demolition, but half the allotted timeframe was used up putting together the necessary paperwork between all the parties. Additionally, it was determined that a power line had to be moved, and scheduling that job would take another two weeks.
Frey said the district would try again later this fall after the county’s excavator completes culvert replacement and cattle guard crossing installations.
Mayor Scott Peters of Shoshoni said the demolition of the east side of Main Street where the abandoned buildings sit was a priority of his term in office to free up space for economic development.
