Sheridan County Commissioner Steve Maier passed the chairman gavel to Commissioner Terry Cram Tuesday morning during the first meeting of the New Year.
His first announcement was to say the Court House would be closed Monday, Jan. 20, in recognition of Equality Day, and that the county would not be taking any action to open Dana Avenue. The board closed the avenue on the first of November, from 13th to 15th street, because of safety concerns for the traveling public and the residents living adjacent to the section of road. Because no action was taken today, the road will stay closed.
Cram's first formal act as chairman was to deny a damage claim from a resident regarding snow removal, which was approved unanimously by the commission. The commission then approved the sponsorship of a Community Development Block Grant for the Day Break senior daycare for the Sheridan Senior Center.
