A change to their bylaws is something that the Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority Joint Powers Board discussed at length Tuesday. Since the board is made up of three entities, the City of Sheridan; Sheridan College; and Sheridan County School District Two, a loosening up of the bylaws is something that will most likely take place in the near future. Sheridan College President and SEEDA Chairman Dr. Paul Young.
While the Board did agree to move forward with the change, their Attorney Rex Arney will contact the attorneys for the School District and the City before the amendment to the bylaws is made official.
In 2010, the State Legislature passed legislation that classifies a joint powers board as a special district, which falls under the Wyoming Public Records Act. What this means for SEEDA is that their records need to be maintained at a location deemed their business office.
The Board agreed to make Sheridan City Hall their business address in order to comply with the new legislation. Young said that City Clerk Scott Badley will be in charge of keeping the records for SEEDA.
