JACKSON — Scott Coombes, his wife and their three kids have started looking for a new place to live after receiving notice of a rent increase at their county-owned employee housing unit.

Coombes, a detention officer at the county jail, is one of only a handful of Teton County cops who live in the county. The rent hikes, if finalized by the Board of Teton County Commissioners, will likely force his family to move to Star Valley.
