Public Health to offer CPR classes

Barbara Anne Greene

Big Horn County Nurse Manager Hillary Mulley was at the commission’s Nov. 7 meeting to provide a department update.
CPR classes will be offered soon. Mulley said they would offer two classes — one for those wishing to renew their CPR card and one for those needing a new card. If there is sufficient interest, they will offer the classes once a month.
She said Public Health has finished up its flu clinics. They have the new Covid-19, RSV, pneumonia, and shingles vaccines available for those wanting them. Mulley said the cost of the vaccines has increased.
The department is doing blood pressure clinics again at the senior center in Lovell, as well as “Lunch and Learn.”
Mulley said they still have openings for a public health response coordinator (PHRC) and a nurse in the Greybull office.
She requested an executive session for personnel.
• County Engineer Willie Bridges gave the Road/Bridge/Engineering department updates.  Bridges asked for an executive session to discuss potential litigation.
• Stephanie May gave a department update for land planning. She noted year to date there have been 13 simple subdivision, 23 new address and 46 septic requests.  
• County maintenance supervisor Jeremy Pouska reported on various county facilities including the Lovell Annex and the courthouse elevator project.
• Cynthia Johnson from the South Big Horn Senior Center gave an update. She provided copies of the University of Wyoming Healthy Aging Data report.
