GILLETTE, Wyo. — Campbell County commissioners will lead a meeting at 1:30 p.m. May 15 that will include updates on the fiscal year 2023–24 budget, the audit and more.

Human Resources Executive Director Brandy Elder will provide information on input for merit evaluation for county employees, and Emergency Management Coordinator David King will make remarks on the Physical Facilities Security Committee.

On April 6, Campbell County commissioners approved forming the physical security committee to identify ways to better protect county employees and visitors to county facilities.

The committee aims to develop physical security policies based on an analysis by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said King. He said the report was undertaken at the request of Commission Administrative Director Denton Knapp.

King said some county employees are often on the frontline when a disgruntled resident comes into areas like the commissioners’ office. Commission Chairwoman Colleen Faber said that emergency and safety equipment were ranked highly on the recent Optional One Percent Survey, which indicates the physical security committee is in line with what the community believes is important.

Two workshops will follow. A 3 p.m. workshop will cover T-7 Road and a 3:30 p.m. workshop will provide a quarterly update on the county’s investments with PFM Asset Management.

Here’s the prior quarter’s report. Data on Campbell County specifically begins on page 62.

The next directors meeting will take place June 5, and the next full directors meeting will take place June 19. The next managers meeting is slated for July 17.
