On July 20th the County Commissioners have scheduled a vote on the new building permit process. Since the entire Public Pulse program is allocated to the CC's on the following day I'm assuming they will have plenty of "explaining" to do about the new approved permitting system.
The Commissioner have repeatedly said they want public input on this issue but have failed to answer questions/concerns brought forward by the public. Is it a coincidence that the Home Builders Association favors this new permitting system? They are the beneficiaries of these new policies. The overwhelming majority of people I visit with are not in favor of this policy.
Although the permitting changes are being steamrolled through I urge anyone concerned by 1. The new building permit process...increased charges with little if any benefit to the public. 2. The lack of response to the citizens of Sheridan County on the part of the CC's. I urge all to attend the Commissioners meeting on Tuesday July 20th, 9 am and be heard.
We need County Commissioners who will listen to their constituents. Who will govern based on the needs of the constituents and not on increased revenues.
