The views expressed on this website are the personal thoughts and views of Jeff Hough
and do not reflect an official position of the Bannock County Commissioners.


Bannock County is a great place to live and raise a family. Its future is bright and the county is in a good position to take advantage of opportunity.

I believe we can do better.

Bannock County is set for major growth in the upcoming years. I believe we should be proactive in getting ready for that growth. We need to look for ways to keep property taxes in check while providing necessary services. We need creativity and a spirit of cooperation.

I believe I can help with that.

Our Coroner's name is Ely Taysom. I had a brain cramp during the session and couldn't remember his name and didn't want to offend him by saying the wrong name.

I think the commissioners have WAY more to say about what the assessor asks for to make things easier for the public then you are stating.

I know a person shouldn’t have to wait For a minimum of 3-5 hours in line just to renew license plates!!!!!

I don't know what the problem is at the assessor's office. I went there to register my car not too long ago and was in and out in 5 minutes. Everyone here should be grateful. The lines some of my friends have to stand in are 5 hours + in other states.

_Your coroner has a name. Too bad you didn't use it.

So she can put the box for drop offs out front then?

Thanks, but I can’t hear you 😥

And drivers license renewal is at the sheriffs office

Maybe better pay would keep them fully staffed?

Leslie Duncan!
