The Kaycee/Buffalo/Johnson County Economic Development Joint Powers Board has a new director/chief executive officer who stopped by both the county commission and city council meetings this week to introduce himself and get to know some of the people and entities he will now be working with.

Dave Simonsen spoke to the city council, saying he was looking forward to getting started in his new position.

Simonsen is getting his office ready in the old Clear Creek School building, gathering furnishings, a phone, a computer and all other necessary needs.

Simonsen recently took the job with the joint powers board and was most recently the Business Ready Communities/Community Facilities Program Manager at the Wyoming Business Council .
