Department of Public Health

Congratulations to Paula Spurlin who received the 2023 Performance Award in Vital Records! There are only 10 offices in the state that received the award this year. There is a list of 10 performance standards that must be met to obtain this award including making few errors, timely payment of invoices, timeliness, and completing annual training by the deadline. She has also received this award previously in 2015, 2017, and 2021. We are all very proud of her. She always represents the County in such a professional manner as does all our Public Health Staff.  It is staff like her and her peers who make me so happy that I came to work for the County 4 years ago.

I just wanted to start off by saying that as of today, it is one year since I left the Department of Human Services to become the Fremont County Administrator. I loved my work at DHS and the staff there have a very difficult job, but their professionalism and dedication to this very important work is just unbelievable. What I have discovered this past year is the same is true about all the departments and elected official’s offices for Fremont County. I am so appreciative to our County Commissioners for providing me this opportunity to work with our elected officials, department heads and our dedicated employees to help serve this great county we are blessed to live in. I could not be more proud or more appreciative of the opportunity I get every day to observe first-hand, the remarkable talents and skills that our 370 employees and elected officials bring to the office every day, to ensure the important work of the county is being accomplished. This is my 39th year of working in a professional public service capacity and I can’t think of any place that I have been employed where I have appreciated the competent work, dedication and pride in a job well done that this group of public servants brings to our community.  Fremont County residents should feel confident that while no one is perfect, the employees work their hardest to provide great customer service and conduct themselves with integrity and great character.

Website Changeover

  • The Fremont County website, previously available at https://www.fremontco.com, will now be available at https://fremontcountyco.gov.
  • The .gov domain designates us as an official, credible government entity.
  • The .gov domain registrar offers additional security, on top of the security we already have.
  • Fremont County will maintain control of the fremontco.com domain.
  • County emails are not changing at this time.
  • The URLs of any third party hosted services – like the Sheriff’s Office page and the public record searches – will not be changing. Those links are still available on the County website, just like before.
  • The content of the website has not changed. All data previously accessible is still accessible.
  • There is a banner on the website indicating the change. This banner will go away at the end of this week.
  • Visiting www.fremontco.com will automatically redirect users to fremontcountyco.gov.
  • The redirect will be staying in place even after the banner is removed. This redirect will be available as-is for at least three months.
  • This means that old bookmarks will still work, but if you have a bookmark saved to a particular page on the county website, you should update it. Updating bookmarks is the only action any Fremont County citizen should need to take because of this change.
  • Search engines like Google and Bing have already been updated with the change. Some other websites that link to ours, however, may still show the old website. If you visit one of these links, the redirect will take you to the right place.

Sheriff Department

We are in the process of replacing the chiller at the Sheriff’s Department. It went out to bid and was awarded to Freedom Mechanical to complete the project. The chiller should arrive this week and the project should be completed by January 31st.  We are excited for our Sheriff Dept staff to have this completed as last summer they endured many days of 95-100 degrees in their office area. This should make for a much more comfortable work environment.

 

Budget

The 2024 Budget for Fremont County Government was approved at our January 9th meeting by the BOCC. Just go to the Fremont County Website and click on the Administration and Finance tab and then click on Budget and Finance tab. You can then pull up the Final 2024 Budget. I would really like to thank our Finance Director Shawn Sutton, our finance team and all the elected officials and department heads who worked to get the budget finalized.

 

DHS

DHS will be holding their quarterly PDD for their staff tomorrow January 31st. DHS building will be closed all day on the 31st to allow for staff training all day and will reopen on February 1st to the public.
