JACKSON -- The Jackson Town Council has authorized up to $700,000 to build a massive buttress that could temporarily slow the landslide at East Gros Ventre Butte and to monitor the situation.

The weight will be built in a business parking lot to act as a counterbalance to the slipping hillside.

About 60 people affected by the slow-moving slide began evacuating Wednesday.
