Mar 19, 2014 - By Kelli Ameling, Staff WriterThe Fremont County Museums Board has voted to hire two part-time employees to fill positions at the Riverton and Dubois museums.
During the board's meeting Feb. 13 in Lander, trustees approved one position for each of the museums. The positions would allow an employee to work up to 19 hours --so they do not qualify for benefits, according to trustee Tom Duncan --at $10 an hour.
"This would help out a lot," said Karline Schuback, the lone paid employee at the Riverton Museum. "There are so many tasks to complete. Having a second employee would be great."
Schuback said that with the help of another employee, the museum could stay open longer.
The museums board discussed adding the positions after two employees from the Dubois Museum reminded the board they were going to be gone for most of the month in April.
The director and curator of the Dubois Museum resigned in December. Those positions have not yet been filled.
