Public Works wrapped up their portion of the City of Sheridan Budget Work Sessions Friday afternoon, covering the topics of Capital Improvement Projects and Fleet Management.

Lane Thompson is an engineer with the City, and he tells us where we sit compared to last year on Capital Improvement Projects.

The Fiscal Year CIP total for 2011 is $14.1 million. Ongoing projects include the Sugarland Water Main Replacement; the North Main Reconstruction Project; the Cross Valley Slip Lining, which will improve water pressure on the South Hill; the 2010 Rotomill and Overlay projects; and eight pathway projects, to name a few.

Mayor Kinskey praised the engineering department for their ability to find funding streams to keep some of the projects up-to-date. Thompson comments.

Thompson says that even with the decrease in available funding, they are still getting things done and putting money back into the economy with the jobs these current projects are providing.

After Thompson finished his Power Point, City Operations Manager Pete Husman discussed the City's Fleet Management program. There are currently 277 vehicles and equipment with an estimated value between $10 and $12 million. Husman says that it has taken four years or more to compile the information.

The next Sheridan City Council Budget Work Session will be held at noon Monday in the 3rd floor Council Chambers at City Hall. It is open to the public, and the departments covered will be Fire & Rescue; Travel & Tourism; and the Recreation District.
