The Sheridan City Council approved a funding resolution for the optional one-cent sales tax at their meeting Monday night. The total projected revenue for the tax over the next four years is $3.6 million, which is lower than what's been accustom over the past decade. Council President John Bigelow.
Bigelow says that there is a contingency amount of approximately $200,000 that the City has to work with.
The majority of the funding will be allocated toward facilities and infrastructure, as $2 million is scheduled to go into the improvement and maintenance of streets, bridges, sidewalks, utility improvements and flood gauge system upgrades. The optional one-cent sales tax is up for renewal this year, as it will be on the ballot in the General Election on November 2nd.
