Staffing Plan & Directory

West Yellowstone is a unique place.  Most small towns of 1200 people have just a handful of year-round employees.  However, the impacts of tourism on our little town requires a little more upkeep than most.  The passage of the resort tax in 1985 has enabled the Town to employ enough people to offset those impacts and make West Yellowstone a great place to live and visit.  The Town currently employs 32 year-round employees and up to 7 part-time or seasonal positions.  Wages are competitive and employees are fortunate to receive health and retirement benefits as well.
